The evolving pop-punk sound of WILLOW is coming to the UK as the singer announces 2021 dates

WILLOW has announced her return to touring with a UK date in the Electric Ballroom before the end of 2021.

Born to A-lister parents Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, Willow Smith broke records with her debut single, Whip My Hair, back in 2010 at the age of ten, becoming the youngest artist to date to land a double-platinum single.

Taking her first steps into the entertainment industry at the age of seven, Smith got her first film role alongside her father in the 2007 film, I Am Legend. This led to other roles in films like Kit Kittredge: An American Girl and Madagascar 2: Escape to Africa.

In 2010, the young star signed to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation and soon after released the catchy pop anthem, Whip My Hair. The song landed in the Top 20 of Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart and won WILLOW the Outstanding New Artist award at the NAACP Image Awards in 2011. 

Five years later and after finding a new sound, WILLOW returned with her debut album, Ardipithecus, which showed off the artist’s talents with a more alternative, evolved feel. That change continued through her sophomore album, The 1st, released on her birthday in 2017. The album received praise for the growth shown by WILLOW in her songwriting and for the nods to classic 1990s R&B despite the star not even being alive at the time to have any real-time references.

In 2018, WILLOW joined her mother Jada and grandmother Adrienne Banfield-Norris to launch their web series, Red Table Talk. The series has featured a string of celebrity guests and focuses on having honest discussions about often difficult subjects. The show has been nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award. 

WILLOW released her third, self-titled album in 2019 which was co-produced with Tyler Cole. She and Cole later collaborated on another album titled, The Anxiety, which was released in 2020.

Smith began to incorporate elements of punk-rock into her music with the release of her 2021 single, Transparent Soul, featuring drummer Travis Barker. The pair collaborated on two other singles for WILLOW's next album, Lately I Feel Everything. The album also featured collaborations with artists like Avril Lavigne and Tierra Whack and proved very popular on social media platforms like TikTok.
