21st Century Girl - Willow Smith
Here's my take on Willow Smith. Her parents are powerhouse entertainment moguls that aren't going to let her make a misstep in her career. That being said, I have to give her credit for busting onto the scene with not one but 2 singles that are laser sighted on her demographic. Young girls and tweens should be eating this up with a spoon. I'm not mad at Willow and as a matter of fact, I will be honest and admit that I'm a fan. The girl has talent that is waiting to be molded and shaped into the next hot commodity. I hope that she doesn't peak before puberty ends because I think there is a potential for a long career in entertainment for her.
As far as this song goes, the only amount of dubiousness I see in it is thinking that she is the type of girl who likes to rock the beat. Is she old enough to rock the beat? Can she rock the beat before bedtime? It's a catchy track that has mass market radio appeal and fits right in with Avril and other girls making girl positive pop music.
I was going to give this a solid 7 out of 10 but I'm gonna throw in an extra .5 for the cameo from the wolves in the video. So a grand total of 7.5.
