  • Will and Jada Pinkett Smith’s 9-year-old daughter, Willow Smith, is making her debut as a recording artist. So, call her the Fresh Princess.

    She has signed a deal with Jay-Z’s label, Roc Nation. Her first song was released this week. It’s called “Whip My Hair.”

    Jay-Z says it’s rare to find an artist with such talent and creativity at Willow’s age.

    Will Smith first gained fame as a rapper, but unlike her father, Willow is singing on her record.

    With a voice that sounds twice her age, some critics are already drawing comparisons to Rihanna.

    Willow isn’t the only Smith child to find success at a young age.

    Older brother Jaden, 12, made his critically acclaimed film debut in “The Pursuit of Happyness” and took on the summer box office with a remake of “The Karate Kid.”

    Like her father, she’s a double threat: Willow appeared in the movie “I Am Legend,” with her dad.
