Willow Smith channels Adele AND Rihanna in her “Skyfall” cover.
Just when we thought Cat Bounce was the best thing we’ve seen on the internet in a minute, we got sucked into widdle Willow Smith’s webcam cover of Adele’s new song, “Skyfall.” (You remember — the new James Bond theme song!)
And, like, not only can the 11-year-old music prodigy hold her own on the track’s chorus, but she’s throwing some SERIOUS Rihanna vibes on that number. You know that’s what Rihanna must’ve sounded like as a kid. So what we’re really saying here is a.) Willow, your ability to BELT is ridiculously enviable, and b.) maybe less rapping and some more singing (like you did on “Find You Somewhere”) in the future! Now please cover “Diamonds,” and while we’ve got you here for a sec, please try not to be so sad, OK?
