We thought it was a bit strange when Jay-Z was praising Willow Smith’s choice to start her music career at just nine years old, but now we know there’s a good reason.
It’s his own investment!
Willow, along with Roc-nation boss Jay-Z appeared on Ryan Seacrest’s radio program this morning to announce her new music home.
Her first single, ‘Whip My Hair’ was released to good reviews, and the video will be shot later this month in Los Angeles.
Of the youngest Smith, Jay-Z had to say: “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.”
The girls may have officially found their Bieber.
We can’t wait to see her throwing up the “Roc” on stage with Jay-Z and Lebron James.
