Sorry, Jaden. Willow Smith might be the coolest teenager in the world.

After releasing “F Q-C #7” exclusively on the persistent streaming service known as TIDAL, Willow Smith helped us common folk out by posting a music video for the song, which she helped write and direct, on YouTube for everyone to see. And it’s pretty neat. Did I mention that she wrote and produced the song itself, too? Incredible.

Willow’s production of the song, pronounced “Frequency Number Seven”, is simple yet effective.The xylophone keys give this song the perfect feel of playful innocence and curiosity that could be applied to adventuring the Great Outdoors or that could create a catchy theme song for a program on Nick Jr., but Willow’s maturing soul-folksy voice, along with the kicking percussion, easily make “F Q-C #7” an acceptable and enjoyable listen for the 18+ crowd. In short, this is a song that can be played in a mini-van containing both toddlers and grandparents (and everyone in between) without any complaints.

The accompanying visuals are right on point with the fun and carefree vibe of the song. A face-painted Willow is roaming around the wilderness and urban streets like a hip-hop hippie fairy, head-nodding and grooving to her fresh music. Shots of a one-woman band aptly featuring Willow are woven in to represent the simplistic and spiritual creation of the song. Each band member serves as an individual part or chakra, and they all work together to create the whole funky-cool piece, much like how our own minds and bodies function. Willow Smith is ahead of her time.
How much cooler can you get? Writer, producer, director, philosopher, spirit guide, daughter of Will and Jada Smith. The list goes on. Famous parents aside, I give Willow two handfuls of gold stars for being an outstanding artist and individual and for continuously dropping dope stuff at the ripe age of 14.

Chapter 12 Records: Taylor Louis

Video shot and edited by Tafari Robertson Web Content Videographer The purpose of this Chapter 12 video is to show the connection between KTSW and the San Marcos local music scene. I plan to find more labels and/or venues around San Marcos and make more videos in a similar style to show the way Texas state students interact with the local scene and, how KTSW helps facilitate that.
