New Music: Willow Smith – ‘21st Century Girl’

21st Century Girl

After the breakout success of her debut single “Whip My Hair,” Willow Smith dances back into our hearts with her follow-up “21st Century Girl” off her forthcoming Roc Nation debut. The pint-size superstar keeps the positive energy flowing with another empowering female anthem.

“21st century girl, I do what I like/ 21st century girl, I’m taking you for a ride,” sings Willow over the catchy electro-pop beat. She is set to perform the song live for the first time on Tuesday’s “Oprah.”

Step into the “21st Century” below.

    IM JUST TRYING TO SAY EVERYONE IS DOING DANCE BECAUSE ITS RADIO FRIENDLY AND IT APPEALS TO EVERYONE.

    WILLOW SMITH LOOKS UP TO RIHANNA, THERES NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT. SHES 10 YRS OLD AND SHES HAVING FUN DOING SOMETHING THAT INTERESTS HER. NOW IF SHE WAS TRYING TO ACT BEYOND HER YRS THEN THAT WOULD BE BAD. BUT I THINK ITS CUTE FOR HER AGE.

    Kesha and Rihanna like it’s okay, Whip My Hair was more Ciara type of record, I love the Whip My hairs more.

    [Reply]

  11. From Tokyo

    I’m hearing some Kesha in there, with the ‘rock-the-beat’ part. Catchy-pop sound suitable for her age that’ll stay in your head but some of the lyrics are strange for her age. I’d like to hear the ‘Parents Just Don’t Understand’ cover they were talking about. I’m still looking forward to the video, though! I like it okay but I think it’ll grow on me more if the video is good. :o)

    this sounds like some kesha crap. lol i dont like it and i didnt like whip my hair im not a fan neither am i a hater. Just because ppl don’t like your fave that doesnt mean they are a hater. i don’t like willow songs but i wish her the best.

    Yeah i like tbh like a mix of amerie’s outside your body and suppose kesha’s first single. Like what most things out but it’s cool :)

    [Reply]

  52. umm...

    this kid is 10 years old and people are judging her like she’s a grown adult.

    This song is a great look for her. I’d definitely rather my 10 year old listen to this rather than the b.s. on the radio!

    Saying that you dont like a song is not hatin…Ppl need to grow up…

  56. Drake&CiaraFan

    Whip my hair was better, this sounds too poppish and 80s. Shes good, but I’m going to need to hear less auto-tune and pop, before predicting her album sales. Not hatin, I loved whip my hair.

    But if “Born This WQay” can go to #1, this should too.

  59. Ash Jones

    It ain’t about coming here to hate. Darlings… the music industry is a harsh place just ask Ciara. Now Willow has already complained that launching a music career has prevented her from having a normal childhood so its mega disappointing when she comes out with generic trash like this. I personally would never whore my daughter out like Jada Pinkett has done, effectively living her own dreams through her daughter. The song is trash but people will be blinded by her youth… its Brintey Spears and Christina Aguilera all over again. Although rather than breakdown I suspect Willow will go the other end of the scale like Aguilera and become a conceited cow!!!

    JAy-Z-Z Reply:

    @Ash Jones, You act like having a child earn a living is a bad thing, do you have a diploma or degree and if you do, are you making the money this girl is making? she is marketable because of her age currently, I would definitely take it to the world… Remember Lil Romeo, he cant have a number one like he did when he was 11yrs old right now and thats how he made a name for himself and became rich… Bow Wow made a name at 13 and he still has his name, branched out to movies and still do music but if he wasnt a young rapper, he wouldnt have made it to where he is…

    let this girl work, school doesnt pay itself… and how many people are successful cos of school? this girl would have to be an A student to come close to being Obama, well erase that USA wont have another black president in many years after this…

    You loved Britney and Xtina, Justin Bieber… Dakota Fanning is an actor at age what??? look at the kids who are acting in most movies, they are young, why is it wrong that Jada is allowing her to work??
