Video: Willow Smith – ‘21st Century Girl’

Willow Smith

Willow Smith springs out of the desert sand in the video for “21st Century Girl,” the infectious second single off her upcoming Roc Nation debut. In the colorful clip, a gypsy played by actress Cicely Tyson raises the pint-sized popstress from the arid ground, soon joined by a gang of girlfriends who run with wolves and tug on chains to erect a city from the earth. To celebrate their urban creation, Willow and co. throw an impromptu dance party in the middle of the street.

“Willow’s colorful desert look was inspired by vintage Versace, borrowing shapes from Marie Antoinette with very current pops of color,” Brea Stinson, who styled the 10-year-old singer, tells Rap-Up.com. “The overall video was inspired by everything—the movie Blade Runner to Japanese street culture. 21st century girls aren’t afraid to take risks and live their dreams, and we did our best to showcase that in the wardrobe.”

Zoom into the 21st century by watching the bouncy visuals.

    I wish this girl a succesful career… but this sounds like a Rihfund rihject with way better vocals. Once again Rihfund (formerly known as ‘Rihanna’) got upstaged. By a ten year old! Haha!

    She has a good voice,she’s cute but that’s all. She’s nothing special at all. I’m not hating 10 year old girl but she’s doesn’t bring new on the table. I don’t like the song and video.

    Whip My Hair was so much better. I wish her all the best!

    @TYLER, lol PERSONALLY to you its garbage but to me its a good song not GREAT but its cute and catchy and appropriate for her age abd the video could’ve been TEN times better if they changed a few little things…now Cymphonique is pretty good NOW back when she was willows age they sounded the same…to me i think if she got with some REAL song writers and producers she’d be going somewhere bc for me all her songs have the same feel like Rockstar and Little Miss Swagger and All That have the same pattern in the chorus
