Vids Are Alright 2017 #8: Jaden Smith “Batman”

"Batman" is a story about waking up to a beautiful pink/purple skyline that just happens to include Jaden Smith's own personal Bat Signal. When the world needs a hero, Jaden knows what he must do. He is that hero. He is Batman.

Let's give credit where it's due:
#1 The keyboard hook is pretty damn catchy.
#2 Whoever shot this knows their cinematography well enough to have captured some decently gorgeous skyline shots.
#3 We'll give some benefit of doubt here: Jaden might be the world's biggest fan of Drake & Future's "Jumpman," but the song was also sampled and lifted hundreds of other times - not only on mixtapes like Lil B's Thugged Out Pissed Off but on critically acclaimed records like Kanye West's The Life Of Pablo - so at least he's in good company.
