Hollywood heavyweight Will Smith’s daughter Willow Smith aka Willow has always believed in carving her own path whether it is acting in movies or focusing on her music career. With already three full-length albums to her credit, Willow is now pulling up her socks for her brand new album.

The 20-year-old singer-songwriter is believed to be working on a pop-punk album and guess what? We might see pop-punk queen Avril Lavigne on one of the songs in the yet untitled album. Willow recently sat for an interview with a magazine where she spilled the beans on the same. The young songstress has been making music since 2010 when she released her debut single ‘Whip My Hair’. The song peaked at number 11 on the Billboard Hot 100 and also scored a nomination for Video of the Year at the 2011 BET Awards. Willow has so far released albums namely ‘Ardipithecus’ in 2015, ‘The 1ST’ in 2017 and the self-titled album ‘Willow’ in 2019.

Is Willow Smith collaborating with Avril Lavigne?

Willow Smith might not have shared a lot of details on the release of her new album but she did reveal that she will be joining hands with Travis Barker and Avril Lavigne on her new project. Speaking to W Magazine in an exclusive interview, the young crooner first shed light on why she wanted to rope in Barker. “I needed to get that pop-punk cosign. First, I hit up Travis Barker, because I was like, “Yo, I know that you would kill this.” So we got in the studio together, and I let him listen to “Transparent Soul,” and he loved it. I was shaking in the studio, worried about whether he would think it was lame.” Her single ‘Transparent Soul’, which was released recently, is expected to make it to the official tracklist of the album.

Willow then revealed the big news about her joining hands with Avril on the song ‘Grow’, which might be a part of her upcoming album. Speaking on the same, she asserted, “Then I wanted ‘Grow’ to sound like it was on Radio Disney in 2007, so I hit up Avril Lavigne; I wanted that 2007 Avril angst.” She added, “When I heard what she did with what I sent her, I felt like I was transported back to my tween days, in the car, just screaming, “I don’t have to try to make you realize!” It was beyond any joy that I could have imagined.” Avril’s debut album ‘Let Go’ was released in 2002 followed by ‘Under My Skin’ in 2004 which became her first album to top the Billboard 200 chart.




‘My head is going to implode’

Willow surely enjoys a huge fan following but nothing in comparison to Avril. So when the former dropped the big news, a lot of social media users erupted with joy on Twitter. One user stated, “Willow and Avril on a track fuck yes we’re winning and I absolutely cannot fuckin wait, likeeeee that track is about to be on such a loop.” Another elated fan added, “Willow and Avril on the same song??? Oooo i would like to see it.”

The next one tweeted, “I am holding on by a thin thread this week and the thin thread is made up of the knowledge that willow is releasing a new album w an Avril Lavigne feature and the pink cones we got earlier that make pink joints.” One individual asserted, “Willow & avril on the same track my head is going to implode.” One fan claimed, “Willow x Avril is going to be legendary” while another chimed in to conclude, “Honestly knowing that Willow has a collab with Avril coming is giving me everything! I need that song.”
