Just days after Will and Jada Smith’s daughter, Willow Smith, dropped her debut single “Whip My Hair,” she done what most artists struggle to — sign a deal.
According to Rap-Up.com, the nine-year-old has officially inked a deal with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation imprint, with Hov sharing the good news this morning.
“We at Roc Nation are excited to work with Willow,” said Jay in a statement. “She has an energy and enthusiasm about her music that is truly infectious. It’s rare to find an artist with such innate talent and creativity at such a young age. Willow is about to embark on an incredible journey and we look forward to joining her as she grows in all aspects of her career.”
Also in a prepared statement, Willow’s parents chimed in about how proud they are of their young daughter.
“After meeting with several record companies, it was clear that Jay-Z, Ty Ty, Jay Brown, and the Roc Nation staff was the unquestionable choice,” Will and Jada said. “Their passion for Willow combined with their boundless vision and artistic integrity made Roc Nation the perfect home for our little girl.”
Immediate plans in her music career will be to shoot the music video for her debut single at the end of this month.
