Willow Smith Signed by Jay-Z

| September 9, 2010 - 12:30 pm

Willow Smith’s week has continued to improve ever since her new single “Whip My Hair” leaked online.

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith’s protege daughter was interviewed on On-Air With Ryan Seacrest by the famed radio and TV jockey himself. Jay-Z even piped in via the phone lines to talk about signing her to his Roc Nation label and compare the 9-year-old singer to a young Michael Jackson.

And according to Jigga, her A-list lineage had nothing to do with his decision.

I was like man, that record’s a smash. And then [Roc Nation partner] Jay Brown said, ‘She’s 9,’ and I was like, ‘Whoa!’ And [then] he was like, ‘She’s Will and Jada’s daughter,’ and I was like, ‘Whoa!’ and it just went from there.
