Willow Smith’s “I Am Me” verifies every Smith family member is talented

Posted on July 3, 2012 by

Okay, now it’s just not fair Smith family. Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith already have a 13 year old wunderkind named Jaden, who is an accomplished actor (The Pursuit of Happyness) and rapper (he even performed with Justin Bieber). Now, their 11-year-old daughter Willow released yet another music video, called “I  Am Me,” making every normal videogame playing kid feel unaccomplished.

We previously heard her upbeat party anthem “Whip My Hair,” but now she’s literally done whipping her long locks. Willow shaved her head and premiered the reflective track “I Am Me” on Sunday. In the video she sings “Your validation is just not that important to me” in front of graffitied walls and in New York parks with her portable keyboard. Willow has genuine talent and I admire that she’s able to forge her own identity so confidently, at such a young age.

The track is likely from her debut album Knees and Elbows, which doesn’t have a release date yet. She also recorded “Fireball” with Nicki Minaj.
