Check out Willow Smith’s 21st Century Girl official video.
New music from Willow Smith called 21st Century Girl.
Last week’s buzz is now buzz with a business deal behind it: Jay-Z has partnered with Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith’s production company, Overbrook Entertainment in a joint venture “to develop and produce major motion pictures” — including bringing a re-imagined “Annie” to the big screen, with Willow Smith in the title role.
“A decade ago, Jay-Z proved that the power of the underlying Broadway property remains, by showing how these songs could be reinterpreted for a new generation with ‘Hard-Knock Life,'” Columbia Pictures President Doug Belgrad said in a statement, adding that Willow “will be perfect in this role.” Aileen Queen played the orphan in the 1982 film incarnation of the story.
Willow also is signed to Jay-Z’s record label, Roc Nation, which produced her single “Whip My Hair.”
