Willow Smith To Follow Lady Gaga and Rihanna’s Footsteps

American child actress and singer Willow Camille Reign Smith, known professionally as Willow, will be the next Lady Gaga and Rihanna in the world music industry. The 9-year old daughter of actor Will Smith and actress Jada Pinkett Smith became a star in her own right after the release of her new single “Whip My Hair” under Jay-Z’s record label “Roc Nation”.

Even though the lyrics are a bit tacky for a 9-year old girl, the little girl has the voice of a soon-to-be superstar to watch out for according to some reporters. Smith received media attention for her extravagant outfits compared to Rihanna, whom she later credited as a musical influence. Coincidentally leaked on the same day as Rihanna's "Only Girl In the World", the song was covered by numerous media outlets, including Time, Billboard, and CNN the day of its release. Initial reception praised the song's kid-friendly, yet universal appeal, while labeling Smith "Baby Rihanna". Her avant garde hairstyle, according to critics, is set to outdo Lady Gaga’s phenomenal hairstyle.

The “Whip My Hair” video was directed by Ray Kay, who has also worked with Justin Bieber, and Lady Gaga in the past. The video shows Willow Smith dancing, and whipping her hair around after dipping it in paint.

Willow Smith, not only has a phenomenal voice, but she is an actress as well. She has played in several movies, including “I am Legend”, and Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa”. And for this, she is set to find her limelight to stardom at the young age of nine.
