LISTEN: Willow Smith Singing Over A Radiohead Song

willowsmith2011

Budding pop star Willow Smith aka the daughter of Will and Jada Pinkett aka the girl who had a neck injury inducing hit two years back is maturing at an astonishing pace.

Not only has Willow already discovered seminal Brit alt rock act Radiohead (she’s twelve!) but she’s spurned her Top 40 sound by singing over a Radiohead song. And it actually works!

No, it’s not a cover. “Sugar and Spice” features original, maudlin lyrics from Willow, including lines like “they wanna puncture me and then wonder why I bleed”, “inject my soul with darkness”, and “I’m melancholy and can’t do anything right” while the ‘head’s “Codex” mopes around in the mix under her vocals.

Turgid verses aside, Willow kills it. Look out Frank Ocean. Check out “Sugar and Spice” by clicking “Read more”.
