Jay-Z To Score Annie Remake Starring Willow Smith
Her Roc Nation debut may be on hold (for now?) but Willow Smith is still making moves. The singer will star in a remake of Annie, scored by none other than Jay-Z.
Bust Magazine is reporting that Hov will write new music for the film’s soundtrack. The project will also mark a family venture for the newly bald 11-year-old phenom, since her father will produce the flick. Of course Jay’s ties to Annie go back over a decade. In 1998, he sampled “It’s Hard Knock Life” from the musical, and earned himself a Grammy nod in the Best Rap Solo Performance category.
Since signing to Roc Nation last year, Willow has dropped two singles “Whip My Hair,” and “Fireball.”
