Harry Hudson is following up his chill 2020 album Hey, I’m Here For You with the release of a new one-shot music video for “Just Slide,” a “carpe diem” love song featuring his friend Jaden Smith. The clip shows Harry and Jaden performing their verses on a balcony overlooking Los Angeles, as they wear sweatsuits from Harry’s merch collection.
“It was a collaboration with my real-life brother,” Harry says of the track. “I played Jaden the song and at the time it was just me and a piano, but right away, Jaden was like, ‘I need to get on this right now,’ and he just freestyled the whole thing in three minutes. It was so good. There was no way I couldn’t put it out. It came about really naturally; it was like the universe had planned it out.”
Alongside the music video, Harry also released a blue and white Hey, I’m Here For You vinyl, available on his official merch site. The marble records match the clouds and colors of the album cover, making the project even more immersive and tangible for fans.
While Harry is best known for his music, he has also been inspired by his experience recovering from cancer to help create the Hey, I’m Here For You Teen Lounge at Vanderbilt University Medical Center’s Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital. The space is meant as an escape for young cancer patients, featuring activities like video games and a meditation area. Kylie Jenner helped fund the lounge, donating $500,000 in Harry’s honor, and Harry is getting ready to launch his own Hey, I’m Here For You nonprofit as part of Jaden Smith’s 501CTHREE organization to comfort more teens fighting cancer.
