Willow Smith’s New Single 21st Century Girl

The public has been obsessed with up-and-coming singing sensation Willow Smith, daughter of actors Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, since she dazzled and thrilled millions with her first single, Whip My Hair, an anthem for women everywhere to be confident and not listen to all the "haters."  The pint-sized Willow has garnered as much attention for her colorful rocker-inspired looks as she has with her hit single.

The Washington Post characterized the now 10 year-old singer as a “misled elementary-aged girl” in a recent article that critiqued her style.  Ms. Smith dresses the part of a young child trying to have fun with fashion.  With a disposable income and access to the almost everything she would ever dream of wearing, it would be fun for a little girl to play dress-up and wear whatever she wants to wear.  She's celebrating her creativity and originality without looking trashy, overdone or oversexed.  In the just released video for her second single, 21st Century Girl, Ms. Smith gives her fans more of her unique style with colorful ensembles, including yellow shorts paired with leopard print tights and a shirt with the inscription, Boys Need Training.

21st Century Girl, is a dance track with a catchy hook that will become a mantra for many young girls and even older women.  The song includes affirmation lyrics like:

21st Century Girl 

I do what I like 

21st Century Girl 

I’m taking you for a ride 

21st Century Girl 

Yeah, I'm gonna live it up 

Just live it up 

and

I feel like I can take over the world 

If only I get my dreams out 

Pull gold from my soul 

Pull diamonds from my heart 

It's that new girl thinking and this song is just the start!

21st Century Girl's including myself will be on the dance floor gyrating and jumping up and down to Ms. Smith's latest track.  If her appearance on Oprah taught us one thing, it is that she is ready to takeover the music industry with one hit at a time and if that doesn't work out, she has a future in acting and co-hosting with Oprah.
