Anyone in the Smith family is apparently destined for greatness, including Will and Jada Pinket Smith’s daughter, Willow Smith. The R&B singer-songwriter blew up with her debut single “Whip My Hair,” which was released in 2010. Fast forward to 2019, the 18-year-old has finally unleashed her third studio album, WILLOW. The project arrives a few weeks after her brother Jaden Smith’s ERYS (apparently they both like upper case). Aside from the quality in her sound and lyrics, it’s her eccentric, care-free energy and aura that fans can’t help but gravitate toward. If you’ve seen her perform before, you know she kills her live shows.
Willow Smith plays at 8 p.m. on Monday, August 5 at the Roxy.
