Will and Jada Smith now have a second child that’s headed to superstardom. Â Their daughter Willow Smith, only 9 years old, has just released her debut single, entitled “Whip My Hair” (yes, that’s really what it’s called). Â Smith is signed on Roc Nation, Jay-Z‘s label, and the single already appears to be doing well, with close to half a million views after only a few days.
If you’ve heard the song, you can understand the concerns that some people have raised about whether such mature themes about partying are appropriate material for a 9-year-old singer. Â Jay-Z seems to think there’s nothing wrong with it, arguing that “when you have that sort of talent, there is no such thing as too young.” Â I think in Jay-Z’s case, there’s no such thing as too rich, either, and the way this single is going, it’s bound to make a pretty penny for him.
