Ten year old pop sensation Willow Smith has had immense success with her chart-smashing “Whip My Hair” and follow-up single, “21st Century Girl.” That being said, the precocious pre-teen has a lot of people wondering exactly when she’ll drop a full-length album.
According to musician/actress Teyana Taylor, who is currently writing a few tracks for Smith, that release date is inching closer and closer, and fans of “Whip My Hair” will love what they hear.
“It’s coming along great — very her. When you hear it, you’re gonna love it,” Taylor told MTV News at the premiere of “Madea’s Big Happy Family” Tuesday night.
Taylor, who appeared on MTV’s hit “My Super Sweet 16,” said she sees a little of herself in the young Ms. Smith. “She reminds me of a little me,” Taylor said. “I love her style. She’s amazing, so [I’m] very excited.”
Taylor revealed that the tracks she is working on will be in the same vein as Smith’s previous singles, describing them as “up-tempo, fun, dance, young, fresh, new, in the now.”
And when might fans hear that album? “Very soon,” Taylor promised. “Sooner than you know.”
