Willow Smith, the daughter of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, released her single this week titled “Whip My Hair” and the blogs went crazy. No one expected this from little Willow. Where did she get such a voice and big personality? She is already being compared to Pop star Rihanna. The response is that Willow could possibly one day replace Rihanna. I actually think that there is a  strong possibility that that could happen. Here are five reasons why.

1. Her Parents

With the backing of two superstar parents like Will and Jada Pinkett Smith your career could be phenomenal. They already have connections within the music business as we can see from her now being signed to Jay-Z’s label Roc Nation. Also, because of her parent’s the chances of her getting suckered by a record label are almost impossible.

2. Her vocal ability is greater than Rihanna

Truth be told, she may be a little girl, but her vocal ability is already proving to be greater than that of Rihanna’s. Also because of her young age she has more time to develop and tighten up her vocal abilities. Not to mention that she does not have her adult singing voice yet. If she already has vocal abilities now then when her adult voice develops chances are she will  have an even stronger singing voice.

3. Her style is authentic

It has already been established that Rihanna “borrowed” much of her style from fellow Pop singer and label mate Fefe Dobson. Willow has the opportunity to now carve out her own identity.

4. Her fans can grow up with her

Because she is so young, her fans will be too. As she grows and matures so will her fans. So her fans, her and her music can all grow together. Similar to how Beyonce did with Destinys Child and the fans.  Some of the same people who were riding with her from day one in Destinys Child are riding with her now over ten years later. The same can be said for Janet Jackson and Michael Jackson.

5. She has opportunities to change her style

Right now she can be the young hip girl, when she gets about 15 she can be the Rebel teenage girl. When she turns 18-20 she can be the flirty young woman and when she is over 21 she can officially tap into her grown woman style and even add on a little sexy. These changes lessens the chance of the fans becoming bored with her. Janet Jackson also followed these stages.
