Willow Smith performed her new single on The Tonight Show

And dare I say it was actually pretty good? It’s with Travis Barker.

Also, she looks prettier now!

Hmmm, she may be an interesting artist if she stays on this route.

Everybody is already sick of all 3 of the Smith children. It's too much.

Their mother ruined their careers before they even got started. Then Jayden ruined what was left of his on his own.

This thread will wear the willow.

The song is actually decent. Her voice suits that fem-punk rock meets New Age Rock style.

I still prefer the classic Whip my hair.

Jaden and Willow are both decent musical artists. The bar is so low in music now that they can easily fit into the scene.

I weep for Willow.

The kids are creative, musically at least. They take after dad in music.

It’s interesting how each Smith has such a different sound in their music

Actually good. Impressed. Was prepared to scoff.

Lip syncing, no thanks.

That’s 90% of artists today r12

I liked it.

I also surprised myself by liking it. She is looking very pretty now.

She’s definitely growing into her looks

🔥 it’s good

I'm sorry, where are the back up singers???? She's lip-synching!!! Not cool!

Reminds me a little of the Cure. I like it.

R17 they all lip synch these days. Get over it.

The best part about this is she saying go fuck yourself to the black elite and the assumption that black people only sing R&B.

R25 ???

by Anonymousreply 2605/21/2021

Is she singing that she has trans parents?

by Anonymousreply 2705/21/2021

Way too manufactured. Perhaps, LA edgy K-pop, or something.

by Anonymousreply 2805/21/2021

She’s singing that she sees through someone

by Anonymousreply 2905/21/2021

K-Pop doesn’t sound like this.

by Anonymousreply 3005/21/2021

The "manufactured" aspect, dipshit.

by Anonymousreply 3105/21/2021

Isn’t all punk rock and Neo Rock “manufactured”???? It’s not classic rock.

by Anonymousreply 3205/21/2021

Well, anything that is made is.

This is "art" supposedly, not etymology.

by Anonymousreply 3305/21/2021

It’s ok. Not sure if there is a market for that kind of music anymore. Her brother is so annoying.

by Anonymousreply 3405/21/2021

R34 I feel like her and her bro just do whatever they want. Her brother in particular does very artsy music that isn’t commercial

I’m surprised Dave Grohl wasn’t on drums. He’s on everything and he’s everywhere

Smith kids are cool. Whip My Hair was great. Willow has always been amazing and she declined being exploited at 12 years old to develop as a person. Jaden's clothing line MSFTSREP sells out almost immediately whenever they release something new. I'm still trying to get pieces from the Trippy Summer collection second hand cause it's cool as shit. They work together on their individual projects and are both cool as shit.

by Anonymousreply 4205/26/2021

I watched so I could hisss but she's surprisingly good.

by Anonymousreply 4305/26/2021

I do find it surprising that she isn't singing hip hop or the drivel that today passes for R&B, as R25 has mentioned. Her voice is mediocre, but at least it is pleasant enough for background music.

The song itself is bubblegum repackaged as pop/rock, with a little bit more substance than the crap produced by the likes of Avril Lavigne. It's interesting to see someone like her performing it, though - most Afro-American singers would be content with singing one of those "got lodsa moolah - bitch, me iz rich" hip hop songs with lots of samples, an illiterate rapper babbling nonsense and and touches of pseudo-political posing.

What I have loved is Jaden's song at R8. It is surprisingly beautiful, mellow and profound. Who would have thought that Will Smith's children would do something truly interesting, instead of the annoying pap their father used to perform?

R44 not all black people only listen to or like rap/R&B 🙄🙄🙄

There are black people into pop and rock’s subgenres. The issue is they’re looked at as funny. It’s music. Why is it ok for white people to listen to rap and hip hop (they’re the biggest consumers of it, especially in the south) but black people are always looked at as funny if they like pop and rock etc?

Normani recently asked why black performers aren’t allowed to do regular full on pop music like white artists? She wants to do pop music but is almost expected to do R&B and Hip Hop.

Great bop

The only thing datalounge hates more than black people is successful black people. They believe that black people aren’t supposed to live better than they live and success is something that is owed to whites.

Travis Barker is so fucking ugly. How that nasty looking piece of meth trash still has a career is one of life's great mysteries.
