Pop prodigy Willow Smith debuts new single "21st Century Girl"

Another SMASH!!

http://www.billboard.com/news/willow...05050812.story



After teaching the world how to whip its hair, 10-year-old pop prodigy Willow Smith has returned with her follow-up single, "21st Century Girl." The bubbly dance track premiered this morning (Feb. 28) on the syndicated "On-Air with Ryan Seacrest" radio show, and will be sold exclusively on iTunes beginning tomorrow.

Produced by Twin & Alke, "Girl" is a forward-thinking piece of electro-pop that features more fleshed-out production than "Whip My Hair" but the same sense of confidence from the young singer. "I set the boundaries, the rules don't own me/I'm living life on the edge, I choose my path," Smith sings in the second verse.

After the daughter of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith made a splash last fall with debut single "Whip My Hair," which peaked at No. 11 on the Hot 100, the singer posted a 16-second preview of "21st Century Girl" on her Facebook page last month. Along with Tuesday's digital release of the song, Willow Smith will perform the new single for the first time on tomorrow's episode of "The Oprah Winfrey Show."

Smith has not set a release date for her debut album, although the singer teased on Twitter last month, "Are you excited for my album?! It's coming soon........VERY soon!!" In the meantime, the pint-sized singer is gearing up to support Justin Bieber on 13 tour dates when his "My World" trek heads to the U.K. beginning Mar. 4.

Prodigy? Umm, I'll admit the girl has some talent, but she's no prodigy. She's backed by the church of Scientology Will & Jada.

Re: Pop prodigy Willow Smith debuts new single "21st Century Girl"

She's hardly a prodigy. She's just a 10 year old, a daughter of famous parents, and I don't think it's good to force such a young kid to perform on stage that soon. It kinda bothers me to see and hear what she's got to say in her songs. She should be at least, 5 years older. Plus, the new song is nothing special. The same electro crap we've been hearing for many months now.

Hope she has more success though!

Can she actually speak outloud in public in complete sentences unlike her brother?

This is not some prodigy, this is just an inspired Rihanna fan.

She's just way too young.

Oh and I must post this because she didn't invent whipping hair back and forth by any means. (I hope she doesn't think that she did. ) Polly Harvey was doing it well before Willow was even born.

It's decent but not amazing. I still can't get Whip My Hair off my head.
