Willow Smith On Her Way To Superstardom

Willow Smith, the newest Roc Nation signee, is well on her way to becoming a superstar. The 9-year-old daughter of actors Will and Jada Pinkett Smith is blazing her own trail with her unique sense of style and new music video for her debut single “Whip My Hair.” The clip was released on Smith’s website late Monday, October 18, and expresses how one should always be an individual. The video begins in a classroom that is painted all-white with children that look bored to death. Smith walks in wearing an outfit that is every color of the rainbow, ready to shake things up. Her long braids are dipped in bright paint colors and she begins whipping her hair which brings color into the room. Just last month, rap mogul Jay-Z signed the newcomer to Roc Nation. On a radio interview with Ryan Seacrest, he shared that the first time her heard “Whip My Hair” he didn’t know it was being sung by a 9-year-old. “I was like, ‘Man, that’s record’s a smash,’” he told Seacrest. “And then Jay Brown [Roc Nation partner] said, ‘She’s 9,’ and I was like ‘Whoa!’ And then [he] was like, ‘She’s Will and Jada’s daughter,’ and I was like, ‘Whoa!’ and it just went from there.” Seacrest also interviewed Willow and asked her about the meaning behind “Whip My Hair.” “It means just be an individual. Like you can’t be afraid to be yourself, and you can’t let anyone tell you that that’s wrong.” Watch the “Whip My Hair” video below: Video by Singersroom.com | More on Willow Smith
