I don’t know whether to love or hate this this song by Willow Smith. I have to admit the chorus is catchy and I can see myself bobbing my head to the beat. But I am an adult.
The 9-year-old voice behind this tune is the daughter of Will and Jada Smith. The song and a slew of videos recorded by children have been labeled “cute.” See an example below. I think my initial objection is the attitude of the song. Check out the lyrics here. The song is a bit too grown for me, and I’m pretty sure I don’t want my daughters to emulate Willow, who sports a mohawk. I thought I wouldn’t have to deal with any of this until Simone and Nadia hit the pre-teen years. But here we are.
