Willow Smith‘s ’21st Century Girl’, the follow-up to her smash hit ‘Whip My Hair’ debuted on radio today. The track is an uptempo dance-pop number soaked with spacey synths and rebellious lyrical content. Maybe it’s a little too mature for a child who still has a few years to go before hitting those dreaded teens.
How many 10-year-olds can actually say they can run riot without being restricted? I know that if anyone in my family tried to lay down the law at 10, we’d get a slap in the mouth. ’21st Century Girl’ has all the elements for radio to jump all over it. Plus, having that Hollywood-savvy last name branded by her parents, also works in her favour. However, ’21st Century Girl’ really lacks the fun age-appropriate value that made ‘Whip My Hair’ suitable for her generation. Give the track a listen below.
