Willow and Jaden Smith

The Smith siblings are one of a kind. Willow, 14, and her older brother Jaden, 16, conducted their first-ever joint interview with The New York TimesT Magazine and it’s definitely worth a read. In between studying Quantum physics and ancient texts, the teens discussed everything from prana energy to writing their own novels to their dislike for school.

“School is not authentic because it ends,” said Jaden. “It’s not true, it’s not real. Our learning will never end. The school that we go to every single morning, we will continue to go to.”

Willow released her three-song EP 3 to iTunes this week, while Jaden’s Cool Tape, Vol. 2 drops Tuesday.

Stream Willow Smith’s EP ‘3’

3

In honor of her 14th birthday, Willow Smith surprises her fans and drops her EP 3. The three tracks, produced mostly by AzZi, include “8,” “9,” and “Flowers” featuring her “big sister” SZA. Her newfound sound, which she describes as “rule-breaking” and “pioneering,” was inspired by her current favorite artist Erykah Badu.

“I don’t think it’s that different from what I was saying before, ’cause I was saying ‘Love yourself’ and ‘You have to live your life for yourself,’” Willow told The FADER. “Now I’m just coming to the spiritual and consciousness aspects of it. My lyrics are probably what’s gonna be packing the most punch, and my tracks are in the background just coolin’ it, like, ‘Hear what she just said?’”

The Roc Nation singer has partnered with Google Play to offer the EP as a free download for a limited time in the U.S. It is also available via All Access, Google Play’s music streaming service.

3 will hit digital retailers worldwide on November 17.
