"Whip My Hair" aka Iwhipmyhairbackandforthiwhipmyhairbackandforth

Here's Willow Smith, the Fresh Prince's 9-yr old daughter. Or, rather, here's her single:



It's terrible, but catchy. And perhaps the best song by someone under 10 since:



Let's all salute Willow now. She has, quite possibly, a seventy-year career ahead of her. Good luck!

The song if awful. I hate that Will and Jada Smith's kids are getting all of this undeserved fame when they have little to no real talent.

Horrific. Utter crap. It'll probably sell like hotcackes. Did the OP actually call it "catchy"??

To paraphrase Ann Richards, these kids were born on third base and act like they hit a triple.

It's sad that at least Will forgot where he came from and has decided to handout success for free to his kids.

It's bad, but in its defense it's no worse than the majority of the so-called R&B songs out right now.

I do think there is some "inflated" hate for Will Smiths kid(s)...I heard the boy was great in Karate Kid...I get the nepotism charge...
