Willow Smith – Whip My Hair

Whip My Hair” is a song by American recording artist Willow Smith. Smith wrote the track while rookie producer Jukebox handled that aspect of the track. The song serves as her debut single from her yet-to-be-titled debut release.

Soon after the song’s release, it was officially announced that Smith signed a record deal with Jay-Z and Roc Nation. The song impacted urban airplay on September 21, 2010. Prior to radio add dates and release, the song collected greatest gainer recognitions on the Rap Songs chart, and debuted at number sixty on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.

Ray Kay was recruited to direct the song’s accompanying music video which was filmed in late September, and is pending release.

In an interview with Rap-Up, Kay said “I’m certain people that are watching the video will feel inspired to develop their own individuality and freedom and express their own art after seeing Willow in this video.” Kay also confirmed that the shooting would take two days, and require a lot from Smith, but said, “she’s incredibly talented and has an amazing personality, so I’m confident she’ll kill it in front of the camera. She’s a star.”

While attending events, Smith received media attention for her extravagant outfits compared to Rihanna, whom she later credited as a musical influence. Coincidentally leaked on the same day as Rihanna’s “Only Girl (In the World)“, the song set media outlets abuzz, being covered by Time, Billboard, and CNN the day of its release. Initial reception praised the song’s kid-friendly, yet universal appeal, while dubbing Smith “baby Rihanna.”

Lyrics for Willow Smith – Whip My Hair

I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (just whip it)
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (whip it real good)
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth

Hop up out the bed turn my swag on
Pay no attention to them haters because we whip em off
and we ain’t doing nothing wrong
so don’t tell me nothing, I’m just tryna have fun
so keep the party jumping

so what’s up (yea)
And I’ll be doing what to do
we turn our back
and whip our hair and just shake them off
shake them off, shake them off, shake them off

Don’t let haters keep me off my grind
Keep my head up and I know I’ll be fine
Keep fighting until I get there
am down and I feel like giving up

I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (just whip it)
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (whip it real good)
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (just whip it)
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (whip it real good)
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (just whip it)
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (whip it real good)
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth

I’m going get more shine than a little bit
Soon as I hit the stage applause I’m hearing it
whether it’s black stars black cars I’m feeling it
but can’t none of them whip it like I do
I, I gets it in hmmm yea I go hard
when they see me pull up I whip it real hard
I whip it real hard, real hard, I whip it real hard

Don’t let haters keep me off my grind
Keep my head up and I know I’ll be fine
Keep fighting until I get there
am down and I feel like giving up

(I think again..)

I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (just whip it)
I whip my hair back and forth

I whip my hair back and forth (whip it real good)
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (just whip it)
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (whip it real good)

I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (just whip it)
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (whip it real good)

I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (ok, ok just whip my hair)
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (whip it real good)
I whip my hair back and forth

All my Ladies if you feel me

Dont’ matter if its long, short

All my Ladies if you feel me
come on do it do it whip your hair
Dont’ matter if its long, short

I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (just whip my hair)
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (whip it real good)
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (just whip my hair)
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (whip it real good)
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (just whip my hair)
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (whip it real good)

I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (just whip it)
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (whip it real good)
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (just whip it)
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (whip it real good)

I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth
