Willow Smith is following in her famous parent’s footsteps. The 9-year old actress and daughter of Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith told “On-Air with Ryan Seacrest” that she has signed with “JAY-Z” Carter’s Roc Nation to pursue her music career.

Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith said, “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. Their passion for Willow combined with their boundless vision and artistic integrity made Roc Nation the perfect home for our little girl.”

JAY-Z had this to say about Willow, “We at Roc Nation are excited to work with Willow. 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.”

Willow’s first single Whip My Hair is produced by newcomer Jukebox and can be heard on her website. The video will be shot in Los Angeles at the end of this month. The song is a celebration of freedom, energy, expression and liberating yourself by “whipping your hair.”
