Willow Smith, the daughter of Will and Jada Smith, is launching her music career at the unbelievably young age of 10 with the sassy tune Whip my Hair. It's essentially an empowering song about doing your own thing and not letting anybody's hate or negativity get to you. Advice she may need to remember when the "too young to be in music" and the "Rihanna Jnr" comments start biting.
Whillow's talk/singing is set over a heavy, imposing, hip-hop beat, which is reminiscent of Beyoncé's Diva,and is decorated with electronic flourishes that add to the track without distracting from a beat that has been designed solely to get people dancing.
Whip my hair is a catchy song and showcases a surprising level of attitude and confidence for someone so young. It'll be interesting to see where this Diva in training goes next musically.
