Will Smith's daughter releases new single: Is she the next Rihanna?

Will Smith’s son Jaden has already had a fantastic summer thanks to the success of his remake of The Karate Kid. Now, Smith’s daughter, Willow, is following in her father’s and mother’s (Jada Pinkett-Smith fronted the rock band Wicked Wisdom) footsteps by releasing her first single, the bouncy “Whip My Hair.” While I was hesitant to listen to the track at first…I actually kinda love it. It’s ridiculously catchy (the hook “I whip my hair back and forth” will be in your head all day long) and it’s got great production values; it’s sorta like Lil’ Mama meets Rihanna. Honestly, if Rihanna recorded this tune, we’d all be saying it’s the next big hit. Take a listen below to “Whip My Hair”…

What do you think Music Mix-ers? Is Willow Smith have what it takes to be a music superstar, like her dad? Or are you underwhelmed?
