Ardipithecus: Willow Smith’s Surprise Debut
Willow Smith has just surprise dropped her debut album: Ardipithecus.
The project is her first full-length release, following a string of singles and EPs that started with the now 15-year-old’s 2011 smash hit “Whip My Hair.”
The majority of the album was written and produced by Willow entirely on her own, though her older brother AcE (Trey Smith) and JABS also appear in the credits.
“Ardipithecus Ramidus is the scientific name of the first hominid bones found on earth,” Smith told The Fader.
“I wanted to name my musical compilation after it because while I was making these songs I was in such a transitional state. Digging deep in the soil of my heart and finding bits and pieces of my ancient self that tell stories, which end up being the lyrics to the songs.”
Ardipithecus is now available worldwide for streaming and downloading.
