Jaden Smith proves that music is more about expression than organization. The teen recently released his single ‘Blue Ocean’ on his sister’s SoundCloud profile, and it is certainly getting mixed reviews.
While some appreciate the edginess that the song brings, many complain that the single has little, if any, structure. Critics claim that Jaden goes from one idea to the next without connecting the dots. In addition, the song is seven minutes long, which is too long for any artist to ramble along.
While it may not be favored as a hit among the masses, Jaden’s song certainly gets his point across. The artist does a bit of talking and then shouts his ideas out during the song. He also does a bit of rapping about a girl that he is fond of but can’t be with because she is already in a relationship. Jaden later sings about the blue ocean and how it washes over everything.
