Everybody’s favorite child of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith that isn’t named Jaden has released her very first album. Willow Smith — who unleashed her music career on the world with her 2010 single “Whip My Hair” — is ready for round two with the release of a full album, just in time for the holiday season.
Smith’s debut record “ARDIPITHECUS” is on iTunes — and Spotify, for that matter — for your listening pleasure and boasts track titles like “dRuGz,” “RANDOMSONG” and “F Q-C #8.” Clearly somebody has been studying under Miley Cyrus in the art of terrible song names.
As for the title of the work, Smith tells USA Today, “Ardipithecus Ramidus is the scientific name of the first hominid bones found on earth. I wanted to name my musical compilation after it because while I was making these songs I was in such a transitional state. Digging deep in the soil of my heart and finding bits and pieces of my ancient self that tell stories, which end up being the lyrics to the songs. ‘Ardipithecus’ is my first album in my entire career and it makes me feel so blessed to be able to share my evolution with the LightEaters as I continue excavating my inner worlds.”
In case you weren’t aware, LightEaters is the name Smith calls her fans. Why? Who knows.
Clearly the young singer — she’s 15 years old — is taking tips from her brother on how to sound philosophical. Unfortunately, that means she sounds just as ridiculous as Jaden does.
Now everyone just needs to cross their fingers for a joined book and album tour featuring the two Smith siblings.
