She’s one of the youngest stars on Planet Pop these days and though we weren’t fans of the singer’s first track ‘Whip My Hair’, millions around the world were – including the 44+ million who’ve viewed the official video on Youtube.
So enter the video for Willow Smith’s second single – ’21st Century Girl’.
It opens with a woman wandering through the desert, pausing to unearth what could very well be Willow’s pelvic bone. Then, with a well-placed miniature ukulele and a few beads, the ground begins to shift and a pop star is magically born of the earth.
Over 90 seconds in, we get our first taste of the tune as Willow fashions a butterfly, cops a colourful wardrobe change and finds her feet with gusto.
If you like Ke$ha, you’ll like this – and let’s hope that this 21st Century Girl doesn’t go the same way as the LAST ONES.
