Soulja Boy Says He Wrote Willow Smith’s ‘Whip My Hair’
Soulja Boy Tell Em is famous for introducing his own dance craze to the main stream, and now the youngster is taking credit for one of the cutest hits of 2010, Willow Smith‘s ‘Whip My Hair.’ The 20-year-old took to his Twitter page to reveal that he is the man behind the pint-sized singer’s playful hit single.
“Yes it’s true I wrote Willow Smith’s ‘Whip My Hair.’ That’s why she says ‘Hop Up Out The Bed, Turn My Swag On,’ he explained, referencing the lyrics to his single ‘Turn My Swag On,’ which Smith also used in her song. “We get $$$ [in] 2011 no games.”
The claim was just one of several rants Soulja Boy sent out to his 2 million and more followers over the weekend. He also proclaimed that despite his “haters,” which may or may not have been a response to the dismal album sales of his third album ‘The DeAndre Way,” he has inked a new multi-million dollar deal, and is looking for new talent. “I’m the coolest CEO you will EVER MEET! Humble, young, all around cool dude to work for! Even though I’m young I got IT. Whatever IT is,” he wrote. “Now find me the next female superstar so I can sign her to SODMG!!!!”
Although the story seems feasible in theory, according to Wikipedia, the actual songwriters are Ronald ‘Jukebox’ Jackson and Janae Rockwell. Regardless of who the writing credits go to, Smith’s catchy tune spearheaded what turned out to be a great year for the singer. Aside from signing to Jay-Z‘s Roc Nation imprint, Smith is set to follow in the footsteps of her father, Will, remaking his 1988 hit ‘Parents Just Don’t Understand.’
