This is big news on the strength of one single that has only been out for a couple of days. Already, Willow is listed on the Mediabase website with the Roc Nation/Columbia tag, which is generally a reliable resource for the ownership of songs. It's no surprise, either, considering the Rihanna comparisons that Willow is receiving for her style and music so far.
While it's a bit strange to hear a 9-year-old singing about her uncontrollable swagger, it seems to be a hit with everyone from Solange Knowles and Brandy to Justin Bieber's video director Alfredo Flores.
"WHAT!!??! Willow Smith just KILLED 'Whip My Hair," he tweeted. "Rihanna, Keri, Ciara, Ashanti -- please be warned." Hey, as long as Roc Nation releases the J. Cole record on time, then we're cool with this.
