Willow Smith Announces New Single; Releases Snippet

Published: Friday 13th May 2011 by Sam

Willow Smith may have whipped the industry into a frenzy last year with ‘Whip My Hair’, however follow-up effort ’21st Century Girl’ fizzled upon release this March.

Hoping the masses forget the latter’s #99 peak on the Billboard Hot 100, Smith’s team have announced plans for a 3rd single.

Find out what it is after the jump…

According to AOL Music, the child wonder (10) is to release ‘Rock Star’ as her next single offering. The personality-packed cut serves as the audio backdrop in this promo clip of the youngster preparing for her Kids Choice Awards 2011 performance.

Check it out:

Jury’s still out on this one. However, with the initial novelty surrounding Willow having worn off, it’s important her material doesn’t just deliver -it has to knock the ball out the park. Way out. Which judging by this, it doesn’t.

Still, aged just 10; Ms. Smith posses talent and charisma acts double, even triple, her age can only wish for (“oh na na”). Hence, her future remains blindingly bright.

    New single for what f****** album?

  2. Aryo May 13, 2011

    still wondering why 21st century flopped. for me it was better than whip my hair ! lets hope rockstar will be her first top ten hit

  3. Steffon May 13, 2011

    I just think shes way to young for this music industry, should have just waited until she was like 14-15, and just did acting for the time being.

    Nope… they really screwed this up. What audience is her music supposed to be catering to? It’s just not appealing for any group, kids nor adults. Ironically, Whip My Hair was so successful because it did just that… appealed to kids and adult audiences. Something told me that Whip My Hair was a total fluke.

    This song doesn’t sound bad. I think it’ll be better than the second single.

    No offense, but I have really grown tired of this child. I don’t like how they are expecting her to compete with adults or older teens. This new music industry is sickening!!

    @MrIncredible

    Co-sign 110%!!

    BEYONCE AND WILLOW NEED TO SWITCH SONGS

  11. ICON May 13, 2011

    She’s cute but her novelty has worn off. She needs to go back to school and then come back when she’s mature enough. She is very talented girl but education should always come first.

    Yes, her bit roles were gaining her a nice buzz. A flop 1st CD wont stop her but didn’t have to happen. 10 is way too young to be placed in the adult music industry. If she were only marketed to the “Mickey Mouse Club” I could understand but the mass appeal of her 1st single (with the media’s help of course) has placed her in a peculiar situation. I don’t think she will see that sort of mass acceptance with another single IMO!

    SHUT UP BABE!!!!

  14. KAT DELUNA FAN May 13, 2011

    LEAVE JAY Z MANAGEMENT TEAMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

  15. Born with a D*** May 13, 2011

    She wants to be Rated R Rihanna SOOOOOOO BAD. At first I was excited about willow jumping on the scene, whip my hair was such a versatile record which kind of gave me an expectation n I forget she’s 10 or something like that… These songs sound like kid anthems.. Which is fine…for her…

  16. OSO May 13, 2011

    I really don’t know what happened…
    her first single EVER was a huge hit, so I think it’s more than good luck, now the 2nd single flopped, I don’t know what should be the next move.

  17. Bia May 13, 2011

    Cant wait to hear the full version!

    I love Whip My Hair, 21st Century Girl and Rockstar will be awesome!

    Love this GURL!

  24. chachoom May 13, 2011

    @CHACHOOM
    LOL WOW

  26. YOUR Queen! May 13, 2011

    Chile and ALL you gwarls on this site were saying this child was coming Princess Rihanna’s red dusty wig! Y’all were so quick to hail Willow as the next Princess lol, I can’t! Anyway Willow just needs to give it up and come back when she’s a bit older. 21st Century Girl was cute though, can’t believe it flopped so hard!

  27. Kerry Johnson May 13, 2011

    I like the way she rock them hips and wave and sip!!!!!

  28. Sane Beyhanna Stan May 13, 2011

    This is what happens when people who are jealous and mad do(Sam) They hype this little girl with a average amount of talent as if she’s coming for Veterans in the industry(Rih,Bey) and she flops. Don’t make excuses. She flopped and shouldve waited before she tried to persue music.

  29. MaZ May 13, 2011

    She needs a more Urban sound like “Whip My Hair”

  30. Kerry Johnson May 13, 2011

    I need to kiss!!!!!
    ASAP!!

  31. WildChild May 13, 2011

    The 21 first century song was greater than Whip My Hair. I still feel like she is too young, there are adults who can’t even handle failure or success in the music industry.

  32. WildChild May 13, 2011

    @Carrie You still haven’t gotten laid yet? smh

  33. Kerry Johnson May 13, 2011

    @WILDCHILD
    No because you didnt come to my place lastnight!!!

  34. Robier May 13, 2011

    Bwahaaaa smdh

  35. Kingofleon May 13, 2011

    She can release what ever she wants at this age, 21t centuary girl and this new song dont sound great but their good enough for a 10 year old. If her album follows suite it will be a solid pop album. She’s got plenty of time to build a more loyal audience, in the mean time she can just experiment and release music. shes already has a 7-10 year head start beyond any other pop/rnb singer in recent history

  36. CURLY SUE May 13, 2011

    Oh ok.

  37. Part Of The Blanco Family May 13, 2011

    @YOURQUEEN they all do that to new artists ..they hail them the Queen

  38. Vanity May 14, 2011

  39. Beyonslut: Beyonic Knowleshit May 14, 2011

    I can’t believe this creature is considered a person in the United States.

  40. nice_girl May 14, 2011

    She is just way too young to be releasing singles. I believe that singers (no matter how good they are) should wait until they are 18 (or 16 at least) to release music. She should go back to school, just do a few small parts in films and that is all….sorry, I don’t listen to some 10 year old trying to sing… it sounds too wierd.

  41. sallyone May 14, 2011

    Yup Im tired of this little girl already!!!! What really turned me off was when she made that comment about Chris Brown..little girl stay in ur place!!! and i dont like the way she dresses at all…im sorry to say this cause she just a kid, but the way she dress looks real stink!!!! (i know a little immature, but i call it like i see it)

  42. sallyone May 14, 2011

    Oh I also believe Roc Nation wont last to long…….Jay is a great business man…but I dont think he has what it takes to manage other artist

  43. leonardo May 14, 2011

    she acts like she is the most famous person on earth

  44. Marie May 15, 2011

    @ sallyone What comment did she do about Chris Brown??

  45. Cheers (Drink to That) May 15, 2011

    She’s far too young IMO! She needs to go to school & THEN come back & do her music!

    I can’t even listen to her music!

  46. quibids software April 9, 2013
