Jaden Smith Just Released A New Single Named “GOKU”!
Hey guys! Today I have something very interesting news to share with you guys. This may also seem a little weird to some of you guys but let’s take a look into it! Dragon Ball Super might have its latest TV series back in the spring, but the franchise is living larger than ever. In a few months, Son Goku and the gang will make a comeback when Dragon Ball Super: Broly moves into theaters once again!
Oh, and Jaden Smith just borrowed the Goku’s name for his latest single. Yes, I am not kidding. It is the same ‘Goku’ that we all are watching ever since we were small kids. At first everyone thought it was something else but no as for its name, the artist decided it would be best to title his song “GOKU” just to be safe. Over on Twitter, Smith let fans in on his new single with a warming message to listen to it.
The artist shared a streaming link to “GOKU” before writing a follow-up breaking down its key lyric. “I feel like Goku,” Smith tweeted, and the song will make fans feel that way. You can give the track a listen right below and just feel all the ‘Goku’ vibes from it. I know some people would be like, why are these celebs getting into anime and stuff? “They are ruining it”, etc. but trust me, this is nothing like that.
The electronic track features a few lunging bass drops, and Smith makes sure everyone knows how much he feels like Goku. The lyric pops up time and again though it is the only overt lyrical nod to the anime. However, if you listen closely, you can hear a short sample of Goku’s voice used in the song. The Saiyan’s Japanese dub is used for a few seconds, playing Goku as he charges up his signature Kamehameha attack.
The actor-rapper has mentioned his otaku interests on social media before, and that love came to a head when Netflix released its original series Neo Yokio. The show has since become a cult hit and stars Smith in its lead role. The anime, which is described as a “postmodern collage of homages to classic anime, English literature and modern New York fashion”, showed off Smith’s interest in old-school series.
