What does “whip my hair” even mean? I have no idea, but it doesn’t matter because Willow Smith, daughter of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, has released it as her first single and it’s getting major airtime nationwide after leaking two days ago.
Recently signed to Jay-Z’s label Roc Nation, 9-year-old Willow Smith is busy working. Does this girl sound like she is 9 years old? Anyway, Willow says she’s serious about a career in music and will film the video for Whip My Hair later this month.
After listening to the song, I wasn’t blown away. Thankfully, little Willow has time to grow into a great lyricist. For those that care to know, she says the line “I whip my hair back and forth” a whopping 70 times (yes i counted) and while catchy, the song just isn’t anything revolutionary. Perhaps having a famous dad helps when it comes to breaking into showbiz, but regardless, I’ll give Willow a few years to prove herself. Until then, whip your hair back and forth.
