The LP announcement comes two weeks after he unloaded his video for ‘Ghost’ which shows Jaden walking the streets of Tokyo.

The new music has been well received by his 9.3 million followers who are now desperate to hear the full versions.

It is not the first time that Jaden has utilised his Instagram account to promote his music as when he released his debut LP SYRE in November 2017 he posted snippets from the record to the site.

Although the album is expected to be a collection of hip hop tracks, Jaden took to Twitter on Saturday to insist it will be more than a rap record.

Will, 49, is fully supportive of his son’s musical ambitions but couldn’t resist playfully mocking Jaden in a hilarious spoof of his ‘Icon’ music video, to mark the hit clocking up 100 million streams.

The ‘Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It’ hitmaker told his son that it was a delicious gift, for a parent to see their child succeed.

Jaden thanked his father, commenting on the clip: ‘Dad this is the funniest thing I’ve ever seen in my life. You’re the best father anyone could ask for. Thank you for allowing me to express myself even when I take it to far sometimes. I love you more than you will ever know because you taught me how to love. Also thank you for having the best Instagram on planet earth. [sic]’
