The world first took notice of Willow Smith in her acting debut in the 2007 box office hit “I Am Legend” next to her veteran actor father Will Smith. Willow appeared in other movies after her debut but all remained relatively quiet until September 2010. All of a sudden Willow exploded into the scene kicking down doors and awakening the masses.
After logging onto Facebook one day in September, I noticed almost every status on my home page was making reference to “Whip My Hair“. I saw pictures as well as videos posted. I had to see what this was all about. I clicked a link for the video, and there I found the genius that is Willow Smith. As I heard the first 3 seconds of the song I knew 2 things. First, this song is guaranteed to be a hit, and second, we’re going to be talking about Willow Smith for a very long time. The song has all the classic makings a hit song. It has a great hook and even better, it’s very catchy. As soon as you hear it, you know you’re going to be singing it all day long.
The young star’s unique talent was not lost on rap mogul Jay-Z who signed Willow to his label Roc Nation. Her voice is that of a confident adult young woman. It’s hard to believe that such a strong voice comes from the small frame of a 9 year old child. Her inimitable voice is just as unparalleled as her sense of style. She has a style all her own. From her lengthy mohawk, to her plaids, leathers, and the infamous Daryl Van Wouw’s Converse Extension shoe pants , Willow has shown an extreme passion for being herself and outward expression.
At such a young age, the rising star is already being compared to pop star Rihanna as well as the late Michael Jackson. With the elite force of Roc Nation behind her, and parents with star power, there’s no doubt that Willow Smith will be something the world has never seen. Willow’s official music video for the single “Whip My Hair” debuted Monday October 18th and is already taking over entertainment news shows, music channels, and the web. Links are posted on every major social networking site and the machine that is the media is in full swing surrounding this breakout stars bonafide entrance into the world of music. It’s certain that Willow’s star will continue to shine as we all whip our hair to the tunes on this hit making wonder.
