One of Willow Smith’s most recent Instagram posts is a pic of track she recorded a while ago, captioned, “Digging In The Archives Is So Fun.”
Recorded in New York at Jimi Hendrix’s Electric Lady Studios, the song’s dreamy neo-soul vibe is reminiscent of Erykah Badu and feels like it was written by a veteran musician. Willow, who was 12-years-old at the time, seems to have developed a sound and style that people twice hear age often spend years trying to figure out.
It’s a great song that will leave you wishing for a rainy day full of daydreaming and lounging. Hopefully, Willow will share more gems from the archive.
