Last year, Willow Smith wanted us to whip our hair back and forth, and on her new single, she proclaims to be a “21st Century Girl.” The up-and-coming pop star was spotted filming the video for the song, off her Roc Nation debut album, over the weekend.
Willow was joined by her parents, Will and Jada, on the set, as well as her brother Jaden and his “Karate Kid” co-star Jackie Chan. The video was shot over two days in downtown L.A. In the clip, the pint-size pop star was seen in braids and wearing various multi-colored outfits that included neon colors and leopard print.
“Hi, guys! I am on my video set and I just wanted to give you guys a sneak peek of the new sound of my song ’21st Century Girl,’ ” she said in a video posted on Facebook. In the video, Willow rocks bright green eye shadow, and in the background, several of her over-the-top looks can be seen hanging on racks. “So, hope you like it,” she said.
“21st-century girl/ I do what I like/ 21st-century girl/ I’m taking you for a ride,” Willow sings. The song, much like her first single, “Whip My Hair,” is a club-banging anthem. “21st-century girl/ Gonna live it up/ Just live it up,” she goes on to sing over the heavily produced beat.
Willow first got everyone’s attention last fall when she burst on the scene with her debut single. And she’s already got some big projects in the works. She’s set to perform at the Grammy Awards on February 13, and she is also going to hit the road with Justin Bieber when he tours Europe starting in March.
