WHAT IT IS: SYRE, which Smith calls “a love letter to the world,” debuted in the Top 10 on Bill-board’s Rap and Hip-Hop/R&B charts and bowed at #23 on the Top 200. The album has garnered more than 250m streams in the U.S. to date. Along with the set, Smith released visual work to supplement the project, with tracks “Icon,” “Watch Me,” “Fallen,” “Batman” and “George Jeff” pulling in more than 100m collective views. “Icon”—certified gold by the RIAA—was named one of High Snobiety’s “Best Tracks of the Week.” Smith, meanwhile, was named one of Time’s “Top 30 Influential Teens of 2017,” as well as a Pandora “Artist to Watch” for 2018.

“Falcon” featured in Time’s “5 Songs You Need to Listen to This Week” and “U” featured in Pigeons & Planes’ “Best Songs of the Week”; XXL (“a colorful, energetic rendering of all the young actor/rapper’s influences.

There’s a little bit of everything”), Pigeons & Planes (“His technical skill has developed to the point where he can pull off bangers like ‘George Jeff,’ conceptual, poetic tracks like ‘SYRE’ and the ambitious four-part opener ‘B-L-U-E’ in the same project”), Mass Appeal (“Thanks to stellar production and Jaden’s continued lyrical growth, SYRE is his best project to date”)
