Willow Smith to Remake One of Her Father’s Hits?
Ten-year-old Willow Smith already knows how to work the Internet and music gossip rags into a tizzy. When asked in a recent interview about potential songs for her debut, her father’s hip-hop classic ‘Parents Just Don’t Understand‘ came up and Willow revealed that she just might be working on a cover version.
“There’s a possibility that I will,” she said. “It’s a really great song.”
Willow also touched on her relationship with Roc Nation head honcho Jay-Z. She finds him very open to ideas, an engaging boss and open to improvement in order to make the best possible product.
“When I have an idea and I express it to him,” she said, “he doesn’t say, ‘Oh that’s bad I don’t like that.’ He tries to make it better.”
She is keeping her other new material close to the vest. When asked to outline other new songs, she drew her interviewer in close and whispered that it’s all going to remain a secret. She did let loose that her other debut material will center around unique messages in a similar manner to her breakout hit ‘Whip My Hair.’
