The new Willow Smith “Whip My Hair” debut song is repetitive but quite catchy. Considering she is just 9 years old, the daughter of Will Smith may be the next big thing in terms of child stars. According to this story on AOLRadioblog, Willow Smith has apparently signed a record deal with Jay-Z and is set to release an album-which will contain her new single “Whip My Hair”. Somehow Willow Smith doesn’t sound anything like a 9 year old girl. Perhaps her voice is synthesized or she just has a lot of natural talent. Willow Smith appears to have made her mark at a very very early age.
You can listen to the Willow Smith “Whip My Hair” song on Youtube here. Just a warning, there isn’t an actual music video attached to the “Whip My Hair” song–it’s just a cute still shot of the 9 year old Willow.
Word is spreading very quickly of the newcomers newest pop single. Google Hot Trends has the phrase “Willow Smith” rising quickly this afternoon as people get wind of the future stars first single and want to listen to “Whip My Hair”. The phrase was in the top 20 of Google Hot Trends today and could spike sometime soon.
What does this mean for Willow Smith? At 9 years old, she is obviously well on her way to infinite stardom-whatever that means. She may be breaking many barriers set by her preceding fellow teen stars. If she starts at age 9, what does the future look like by the time she even gets to a Miley Cyrus age?
The irony is that if you listen to “Whip My Hair”, it sounds like a song that will inevitably be playing at bars and dance clubs. Willow Smith won’t be be able to get into those types of clubs legally for another 9-12 years. That’s pretty amazing considering by that time she might have already enjoyed a great variety of success in acting and singing. She just might have her own empire by then if the music career kick start at age 9 is any indication.
There will be skeptics who will question allowing a 9 year old to become a star so quickly. Many former child actors, or so they may say, have failed miserably in adulthood after thriving as kid stars. The good thing about having squeaky clean Will Smith as her father is that he has never really been in the news for negative incidents. Smith has somehow managed to steer clear of the Hollywood drama throughout his years and cruised from a rap career into a mega hit movie star. With his and the guidance of his movie star wife Jada, Willow Smith could become quite the young professional.
Willow Smith could be the next Miley Cyrus, Brittney Spears or even Lindsay Lohan. There aren’t an abundance of current great teen stars for her to look up to. So it seems kind of obvious her parents will try to keep her close as she kicks off what could be an incredible career.
