Will Smith's daughter, Willow Smith, has dropped a new single titled Transparent Soul. The singer pays tribute to pop-punk with the new song featuring Travis Barker on the drums.
The young musician trended on social media after she released the track as fans debated the song's genre and why she took the pop-punk direction.
Willow told Rolling Stone in an interview that she has been a fan of rock music since she was a child. She accompanied her mom, Jada Pinkett Smith, when she toured with her heavy metal band Wicked Wisdom.
The publication said the song draws from the music of Paramore, Fall Out Boy and Barker’s own band Blink-182
InsideNova reports that Willow's new single is her first new material since her 2020 joint album The Anxiety with Tyler Cole.
Social media users have shared mixed reactions to Willow's new single. Check out some of their opinions below:
"I’m so excited about this! Travis is awesome and Willow... I have to listen to this. Yay!! I love Willow Smith."
"People forget that her mom was in a metal band so this is pretty cool tbh."
"People forget Jada was part of Ozzfest one year. She rocked out with the metal heads. I'm not into this but maybe Willow is still trying to find her voice. She's trying different things, so good for her."
"Willow already has four great albums with a variety of sounds. Would recommend a listen! Some of my fave songs by her are Marceline, Wait A Minute!, Warm Honey, Overthinking IT, Meet Me At Our Spot... Willow already has a pretty good handle on her ‘voice’."
"I don't know about this track cause I haven’t listened yet, but Willow can actually sing good."
"I love Willow Smith’s music. I haven’t heard her new song but I was pleasantly surprised by her voice. She got Prince’s attention. He named her as one of his favourite young artists. That’s what made me check out her music."
The 22-year-old purchased a mansion worth $4 million back in 2017 and started living on his own at the age of 18. Just like his parents and sibling, the actor, who also doubles as a musician, settled for luxury and comfort.
His home, located in a gated community tucked within the famous Hidden Hills area, reportedly consists of six bathrooms, five bedrooms and a massive living area. According to Daily Mail, the celebrity’s home was bought back in 2003 through his parents’ trust.
It is a beauty that consists of leafy vegetation and a serene compound. As earlier reported, the actor’s sister purchased a mansion worth $3.1 million at what seems to be the height of her career.
