So No One Told Me Willow Smith's New Album Was An Actual Work Of Art, And I'm Fully Obsessed

It's 110% Fire Emojis.

So I was trolling the internet looking for some new tunes, when I stumbled upon this song, featured on Vulture's Songs of the Week list, from Willow Smith's new album The 1st.

Which is an ironic name, because this is her second studio album.

And I gotta tell you, I was immediately TAKEN TF ABACK because OMG this young woman's voice transcends.

She's only 17? And more talented than I'll ever be???

Now, of course I knew that Willow Smith, daughter of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith (maybe you've heard of them), was a musician, given that she had the biggest bop of 2010.

But I was unaware of just how much she's grown into her own creatively, and I have to say I'm UNBELIEVABLY here for it all day long.

Anyway, hearing that song lead me down the rabbit hole of seeking out and listening to the full album which, let me tell you, is an emotional roller coaster that reminds us all of the trials and triumphs of growing up.

And she released the entire thing on Youtube, so you can literally listen to it RIGHT NOW. Seriously STOP AND LISTEN TO IT. AND BUY IT IF YOU LIKE IT. SUPPORT THE ARTIST.
