Willow Smith’s New Single Is Much Better Than “Whip My Hair”

Willow Smith's floating around in an entirely new atmosphere — one where a gentle breeze through the hair is favored over whipping it.
Smith has become a teenager in the four years since "Whip My Hair" exploded on the scene. (She turns 14 today, October 31.) She's managed to become a style icon in her own right, too. Her new track, "Female Energy," is dripping in Erykah Badu-cool. It's soul, it's funk, it's chill. It's a refreshing sound that soothes rather than turns up. Smith gets it.
But, don't take our word for it. Miss Smith says it best when she sings, "It’s really out of my control / What I do is not your problem."
