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.”

WILLOW – ​t r a n s p a r e n t s o u l Lyrics

[Intro]
One, two, three, four

[Verse 1]
I don’t fucking know if’s a lie or it’s a fact
All your little fake friends will sell your secrets for some cash
Smile in my face, then put your cig out on my back
If you ever see me, just get to runnin’ like the Flash

[Pre-Chorus]
I knew a boy just like you
He’s a snake just like you
Such a fake just like you
But I can see the truth

[Chorus]
Transparent soul
I can see right through, just so you know
Transparent soul
I can see right through, just so you know

[Verse 2]
I don’t fucking know if it’s paradise or it’s a trap
Yeah, they’re treating me like royalty, but is it kissin’ ass?
No one’s brave enough to take the fall right
But it’s all your fault, why you actin’ like it’s alright?

[Pre-Chorus]
I knew a girl just like you
She was vain just like you
Such a pain just like you
And everybody knows the truth

[Chorus]
Transparent soul
I can see right through, just so you know
Transparent soul
I can see right through, just so you know

[Bridge]
It’s clear to me now
You’re scared of me, wow
It’s clear to me now (Transparent soul)
It’s clear to me now
You’re scared of me, wow
It’s clear to me now (Transparent soul)

[Chorus]
Transparent soul
I can see right through, just so you know
Transparent soul
I can see right through, just so you know
