Jada Pinkett Reveals Willow Smith Will Tour This Summer

UPDATE-Willow Smith is being given time to develop more as an artist before we hear another banger from her like her debut track—“Whip My Hair.”

Jada Pinkett Smith, the feisty 11-year-old’s mom, recently sat down with huffingtonpost.com where she spoke about the necessity for her daughter’s growth as an artist, recording with her mini-me and son Jaden Smith heading back on tour.

Here are excerpts from the interview concerning Willow:

With Jay-Z producing the film’s (remake of “Annie”) soundtrack, can fans expect you and Willow to do a track?

Willow and I definitely talked about doing something, but not for “Annie.” My music is like my freedom space. But Willow and I definitely talked about doing a collaboration. She really loves rock music, so she wants to come on and get crazy with me on a track. Which I would love, because she has a fantastic voice. But she has new music that’s coming out this summer and she’ll be jumping back on tour. So you can expect some new tracks coming from Willow and Jaden. And I think they’re doing a tour this summer as well.

As a family, are there any future plans for you all to star in a film?

We actually are. Will and I are trying to figure that out, right now. We’re talking about us all starring in a film together. Will and I are definitely planning on working together in the next year. And of course, we’re working on the “Annie” project with Willow. But we’re just producing that. And then Jaden is finishing up a film with his dad now. But, as always, there’s tons of creativity happening in the Smith family household. We’re artists to the core.

Are the forthcoming tracks off of her debut album or just singles?

Just singles. She definitely wants to put an album out, but we’re trying to give her space to grow as an artist. Which is another reason why I adore Jay-Z, because he really understands that process. He’s so artist friendly, and he has so much love and respect for Willow. And he’s doing such a fantastic job being in partnership with us, in regards to her career and really helping her develop as an artist.

Do you think the Smiths’ are making the best decision here?
