WILLOW shares “Transparent Soul” remix featuring Kid Cudi

Willow Smith has become one of the major faces of the pop-punk revival thanks to the success of songs like “Meet Me At Her Spot,” a track with her group The Anxiety, and her solo hit “Transparent Soul.” On Friday, Smith shared a new remix of the latter song featuring Kid Cudi, who lends his iconic hums to the already catchy melodies. Listen below.

Ever the innovator, Cudi was attempting to bring back ’90s alternative rock years ago. His 2015 album Speedin Bullet 2 Heaven was widely panned upon its release for its transition from rap to grunge, but one could argue that it paved the way for young Black artists to embrace the genre.

“I am so grateful for this song,” Willow said of the track, “because it was created during such an introspective time during quarantine. The solitude allowed me to introspect and really let go of the insecurities I had about making a project in this genre. I am humbled and grateful that Kid Cudi is now able to bring his magic to this remix.”

Avril Lavigne – Mobile

Went back home again
this sucks gotta pack up and leave again
say goodbye to all my friends
can’t say when I’ll be there again
It’s time now to turn around
Turn my back on
EVERYTHING (turn my back on) everything….

[Chorus]
Everythings changing when I turn around all out of my control I’m a mobile.
Everythings changing when I turn around all out of my control I’m a mobile.

Start back at this life
Stretch myself back into the vibe
I’m waking up to say I’ve tried
Instead of waking up to another TV GUIDE
It’s time now to turn around
Turn and walk on this crazy ground oh oh oh….

[Chorus]
Everythings changing when I turn around all out of my control I’m a mobile
Everythings changing out of what I know everywhere I go I’m a mobile
I’m a mobile

Hanging from the ceiling lifes a mobile spinning round
with mixed feelings crazy & wild …
sometimes I wanna SCREAM OUT LOUD ….

Everythings changing
everywhere I go
All out of my control
Everythings changing
everywhere I go out of what I know

la la la la la la (la la)
la la la la la la (la la)
la la la la la la (la la la)
la la la la la la

[Chorus]
Everythings changing when I turn around all out of my control I’m a mobile
Everythings changing out of what I know everywhere I go I’m a mobile
Everywhere I go I’m a mobile
