Midnight Snack: Willow Smith – “Female Energy”

This isn’t on her brand new debut album, but its a little exhibit of this prodigy’s rich and matured musical prowess. Her use of harmony is very promising, and has potential to be a strange mix of Florence Welsh and Frank Ocean – equally capable of dark eery depths, and the light snappy screeches of “Whip My Hair” she jumped on the scene with. All this “Female Energy” at 15 (this recorded at 13)! She’s got the swagger of a young Rihanna, and the alluring charm of a young Alicia Keys – and it all comes through in sound. This should shock no one, knowing that she is sister to the incomparable Jaden Smith!
