Jaden Smith spoke to Beats 1 radio host, Zane Lowe about his collaborative album with Tyler Cole titled "The Anxiety" and highlighted his struggles with the COVID-19 pandemic.
"I'm just stressed about everything, and it's really crazy. It doesn't happen to me too much, but when it does, it happens. It's very strong."

Jaden, who has a collaborative album with Tyler Cole which also drove home the message of anxiety amid the pandemic spoke further about the cause of the stress he feels. The singer said:
"Sometimes it's work-related, and then sometimes, you can really see that it's that true, genuine anxiety..."
However, he has found a way to deal with anxiety by talking to those within his circle. The singer said he felt like everyone was aware of the mental issues in the world presently because of the individual isolation.
He explained that each person was confronted with their thoughts, with some people able to deal with such things while others not.
Will noted that Jaden was questioning his parenting abilities.
In the chat, Jaden also talked about his decision to drop his last name and not go by his full name, highlighting his sister, Willow's decision to do so before he did.
It would be recalled that Jaden dropped his last name for the first time when he released a surprise new three-song project titled "ERYS IS COMING."
Jaden turned 22 on Wednesday, June 8, and his father, Will wished him a happy birthday via a post on his Instagram page. In the post, the proud father shared a picture of himself and Jaden, who did not look all so pleased in the snap.
In the caption, Will noted that Jaden was questioning his parenting abilities in the photo before adding that whatever he was trying to get his son to do must have turned out well.
Jaden appeared on an episode of his mom, Jada Pinkett Smith's show, "Red Table Talk" last year, in which his parents had a health intervention with him, saying he looked drained and lacked nutrients.
Jaden, who had been a vegetarian for over a year, revealed that he suffered from stomach issues and ate two meals daily while at times, it was just one big meal a day.
