Bassist Pete Wentz has previously expressed his admiration for the younger Smith, telling NME that Jaden could be the “next Nirvana.”

“The reason Nirvana was a genre-killer is that it was a wave that came from nowhere,” Wentz said. “Looking for something that sounds like that is not gonna work.”

We’ll find out what Smith will be doing in the “Champion” video when it premieres this Friday, July 28 at 12 a.m. ET.
