Judging strictly by her new track Willow Smith appears to be following in the creative footsteps of her older brother, Jaden. You may recall the recent transformation, of sorts, young Jaden has miraculously gone under. He’s finding his voice in the music world, releasing strange and uniquely perplexing rap songs. From his cut “Trophy” to spitting morose bars over Pink Floyd’s “Melancholy” the kid’s got an interesting perspective on the world.

Oh, and she’s 13-years-old. Listen for yourself after the jump.
