It was only a matter of time before Willow Smith got back on her music grind. It’s been 7 years since she generated huge buzz with her first single “Whip My Hair” and now to commemorate her 17th birthday, Will Smith’s baby girl has released her sophomore album, The 1st.

In an interview with Refinery, Willow says that she views her latest project as her “first step into me diving 100 percent into my musicality” mainly because she spent more time learning how to incorporate musical instruments into her sound as opposed to the “computer producing” utilized in prior projects.

Now that the Roc Nation artist/activist is officially becoming a student of the game we can expect her to experiment with new sounds and interesting content to match the thoughts and movements of this new generation.

Check out The 1st below and get ready for her big bro Jaden Smith to drop his new album SYRE a few weeks from today.
