"Melancholy" sees Jaden rapping slow, screw-style over a classic, Pink Floyd's "Breathe" circa 1973. His voice is further down the octave than we've ever heard before and his content, it's just as deep.
"Man you guys are just some rich kids/ How dare you call yourself the MSFTS?" he spits introspectively, shouting out his crew of friends (and also the name of his clothing line). "Man I'm sorry, I ain't eat today / 'Cause I didn't know what I should eat today / Full or hungry, don't know what the difference is / I just hope we work out all our differences."
In the background, airy vocals support by way of who may be his sister, Willow Smith.
The song is an especially versatile take in comparison to his two other suprise releases this month, "Blue Ocean V19" and "Trophy V6." And according to his Twitter, we may look forward to more experimental music from him soon. "I Tell People I Hate HI Hat Music I Do But IM Neglecting That Part Of Myself. Everybody Needs To get Turnt Every Once In A While," he wrote.
