Jaden Smith's debut album SYRE dropped last November, preceded by the viral single “Icon,” which was parodied by the Black Panther and his father, Will Smith. On Wednesday night (May 2), Jaden took center stage at The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to perform his hit.
Jaden sported an all-white sweatsuit with a pair Louis Vuitton sneakers as the original “Icon” video that played on a large screen behind him. Channeling one music's greatest legends, Michael Jackson, several times throughout the performance, Smith effortlessly moonwalked across the stage as he rapped, “I'm about to do it way different/I am just an icon living.”
He paid tribute to Michael again as he rapped, “Look, we don't know no one like you/ Gold grills and you dance like Michael,” while gliding to the other side the stage.
