It’s Official: Will Smith’s Daughter Willow Signed to Jay-Z’s Record Label
The song’s been burning up the internet and now Will Smith‘s daughter Willow has announced Jay-Z‘s record label Roc Nation as her official musical home this morning with Ryan Seacrest.
Willow, who is only nine years old, shocked everyone in the studio with how mature and poised she was. When asked about what it’s like entering the limelight, she stated, “it’s very very amazing and it’s very overwhelming…all of the red carpet and the flashes, all the people wanting to meet you…it’s very, very, very overwhelming for a nine year old.”
Ryan asked Willow, who Jay Z called in and compared to being perhaps the next Michael Jackson, “about the her new single and what “whipping your hair back and forth” really means. Willow, “it means, just be an individual. You can’t be afraid yourself. You have to be yourself and you can’t let anybody tell you that, that’s wrong. ” We can’t wait to see your star rise Willow!
The nine year-old’s first single “Whip My Hair,” produced by newcomer Jukebox, has launched to rave reviews. Willow’s debut video will be shot in Los Angeles at the end of this month. The catchy tune is a celebration of freedom, energy, expression and liberating yourself by “whipping your hair.”
