A few days after Willow Smith dropped her debut single “Whip My Hair,” she’s already making major moves. The nine-year-old has officially inked a deal with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation imprint, with Hov sharing the good news this morning.
“We at Roc Nation are excited to work with Willow,” said Jay in a statement. “She has an energy and enthusiasm about her music that is truly infectious. It’s rare to find an artist with such innate talent and creativity at such a young age. Willow is about to embark on an incredible journey and we look forward to joining her as she grows in all aspects of her career.”
Not only was Jigga excited about the signing, but Willow’s parents Will and Jada Pinkett Smith chimed in about how proud they are of their young daughter. “After meeting with several record companies, it was clear that Jay-Z, Ty Ty, Jay Brown, and the Roc Nation staff was the unquestionable choice,” stated the Hollywood power couple. “Their passion for Willow combined with their boundless vision and artistic integrity made Roc Nation the perfect home for our little girl.”
With her career on the rise, Willow is planning on shooting the video for her JukeBox-produced single at the end of the month.
