Roc Nation’s latest and greatest signing Willow Smith is fresh on the scene with the video for her breakthrough jam “Whip My Hair.” When word first started circulating on her signing, I wasn’t sure whether this was a favor owed to Will & Jada or if it was straight legit. Looks to be official by my book, as “Whip My Hair” is gaining momentum by the day. I’m not saying that she’s the next great American voice, but I detect less Auto-Tune in her flow than some others in her lane. On top of that, the song is pretty damn infectious. The way she’s got these little girls wringing their necks, I’m willing to bet that aspiring chiropractors will thank her some day.
As for the video, it’s just as fun and colorful as the song killing a lot of the other videos out right now, which means that she learned a thing or two from Pops. At this rate, between her and Jaden (who makes a cameo with all his Troy Polamalu crowning glory), we may never hear from Will and Jada again.
Now that’s what I call a retirement plan.
