Willow Smith is continuing on her path to pop stardom with her new single, “21st Century Girl.” Following the smash success of her debut track, “Whip My Hair,” the new dance tune will premiere on Monday at 7:30 a.m. PT/10:30 a.m. ET during “On-Air With Ryan Seacrest” and on RyanSeacrest.com.
Fans will have to wait until the end of the day to purchase the new tune as it’ll be sold exclusively on iTunes beginning midnight. The 10-year-old songstress is also expected to plug the club-ready song with a performance on an upcoming episode of “The Oprah Winfrey Show.”
Smith previewed “21st Century Girl” in late January when she recorded a video message from the set of the song’s music video. Similar to “Whip My Hair,” the new tune finds the pop star ready to bring fans to the dance floor while proclaiming her youth. “21st-century girl/ I do what I like/ 21st-century girl/ I’m taking you for a ride/ 21st-century girl/ Gonna live it up/ Just live it up,” Willow sings in what appears to be the song’s hook.
“21st Century Girl” serves as the singer’s second single off her Roc Nation debut album, which is expected to hit stores sometime in March, according to Vanity Fair.
While there’s no word on when the video for “21st Century Girl” will be released, Willow was spotted filming it in downtown L.A. last month. Shooting was a family affair as the starlet was joined by her parents, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, as well as her brother Jaden and his “Karate Kid” co-star Jackie Chan. In various photos, the pint-size pop star was seen rocking braids and a number of multicolored outfits.
