Willow Smith’s New Sound

Most talented artists like experiment and Willow is no different. The Wip your hair back and forth singer revealed, “It was the song that proved to me that I needed to let go of the insecurities I had about making a project of this genre.” Personally, I think the style and genre fits well for Willow Smith and I am interested to hear more of her work in this style.
Willow’s Smith’s New Image is Edgier
Willow can be seen wearing an all-black attire, including large combat boots, a studded belt and a chained collar necklace. Both her attire and her video frames feel very reminicient of Janet Jackson in ‘Scream’ and TLC’s ‘No Scrubs’. She stretches her body into wide angles and above camera shots that scream 90’s with a bit of today’s edge.
‘Transparent Soul,’ What Does It Mean?
Her lyrics are full of spite, spying ingenuity, and saying, “I see you.” You can see this in this lyric sample: “I knew a boy just like you / He’s a snake just like you / Such a fake just like you / But I can see the truth.
The Singer told Rolling Stone, “I thought this was a really dope outlet for a new energy I wanted to bring to my music.” Smith added that inspiration for the song came from a hindu saying. “It is said that a saintly person is so pure that he or she acts like a spotless mirror. When we come in the presence of such mirror-like soul, we can see both the beauty and ugliness of our inner life.”
Smith’s next album is set to be released this summer.
