Willow Smith‘s first single “Whip My Hair” became our main jam in 2010 despite our best efforts to keep it at bay and when her follow-ups “21st Century Girl” and “Fireball” were decently catchy we begrudingly called ourselves fans of the pipsqueak starlet (seriously, who listens to a pre-teen on repeat?). However, her latest single — which she released under the name Melodic Chaotic, a collaboration with DJ MVSIC Fabrega — “Summer Fling” is causing more head-scratching than bobbing.
We know that pre-teens have crushes and daydream of summer flings, but we’re less clear on why they need to clarify that said relationships are “just for fun.” And we’re even foggier on why Willow narrates her romance with a British accent. Last time we checked, the whole Smith gang was from the good ol’ U.S. of A.
While we genuinely loved “Whip My Hair” — seriously, still can’t get enough — Willow is coming dangerously close to our pretentious child threshold with this latest ditty.
