It has been confirmed that Willow Smith is close to finishing her debut album, due for release next year.
The pint-sized popstar seemingly came out of nowhere when she release her debut single ‘Whip My Hair’. Now, Ronald “Jukebox” Jackson, the producer of the platinum selling single, has confirmed ‘Whip My Hair’ wasn’t the only track he made for Willow.
“I did like eight, nine songs on Willow, so right now we’re just in the process of trying to close out the album,” Jackson told MTV News.
Explaining how both her label and her parents Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith didn’t want to rush Willow after her initial success, Jackson went on to say: “It’s just the whole process. You got to think about it: She’s a 10-year old girl. She’s gotta have a life, she’s gotta be a kid.”
The album will feature a range of musical styles, from pop to hip-hop, as 10-year-old aims to prove that that she is more than just a child popstar. Due for release on Jay-Z‘s Roc Nation label, the album will also feature a track with Rev. Run’s 16-year-old son Diggy Simmons.
The next track expected to be released from the album will be ‘Rockstar’, which she performed while supporting Justin Bieber on tour earlier this year.
