Following In Her Father's Footsteps: Willow Smith Gets Record Deal, Debuts New Song

Call her the Fresh Princess.

Will and Jada Pinkett Smith’s 9-year-old daughter, Willow Smith, is making her debut as a recording artist.

She has signed a deal with Jay-Z’s label, Roc Nation.

Her first song was released this week. It’s called “Whip My Hair.”

Jay-Z says it’s rare to find an artist with such talent and creativity at Willow’s age.

Will Smith first gained fame as a rapper, but unlike her father, Willow is singing on her record.

Like her father, she’s a double threat: Willow appeared in the movie “I Am Legend,” with her dad.
