Stream Willow Smith’s New Album ‘The 1st’


Two years after dropping her debut album, Ardipithecus, Willow Smith unleashes her sophomore album, The 1st.

The 11-song project, which features the recently-released “Romance,” finds Willow ruminating on love, growth, and personal exploration. “Hey mom, I met a boy,” she sings on the opening song. “He plays guitar / He likes Quentin Tarantino and really sad songs / Anxiety attacks when he wakes up in the morning and I can’t help the thought, he thinks I’m boring ’cause I come from a cluster of super bright stars.”

Backed by genre-bending music, the album carries a folk spirit of singer-songwriter honesty. “Romance,” which closes the project, features more thoughts on the world around the budding star. “Romance doesn’t exist,” she sings. “It’s a hoax to trick your mind into thinking that perfection exists.”

Taking to Twitter, Willow celebrated her latest release. “Enjoy this emotional regurgitation from the depths of a burgeoning woman,” she wrote.
