Willow Smith drops debut album ‘ARDIPITHECUS’
Posting a few suggestive tweets over the past week stating “Dec. 11th,” Willow Smith has finally released her debut album ARDIPITHECUS, named after the first hominid bones found on Earth.

The alternative project, which arrives via Roc Nation, clocks in at an ample 15 tracks, featuring the previously released “Why Don’t You Cry” and “F Q–C #8,” the companion to “F Q–C #7” that she put out in April.

“I can’t express how relieved I am to finally give my LightEaters my most recent inner excavation,” said Willow. “This is just the beginning.”

ARDIPITHECUS follows last year’s 3 EP, which dropped on her 14th birthday. The three-track release marked a stylistic pivot for the 15-year-old, who embraced more challenging, abstract fare than on previous singles like “Whip My Hair” and “Fireball,” which featured Nicki Minaj. She was initially supposed to release her debut album Knees and Elbows back in 2012, but it failed to materialize.

i mean you don't even have to listen to it, the cover and titles alone show that this is a wanna-be edgy, artsy-fartsy artpop thingy but i quite enjoyed it tbh. Had some songs stuck in my head after the first listen already (e.g "Wait A Minute).
Read somewhere that this was by produced and written by her..not sure if it's true, but if it is, it's quite impressive for a 15-year-old. Her voice is a bit cringy sometimes though.

Can't be bothered with music like this. Try hard and pretentious.

Willow is trying to do a Miley. Heard "Why Dont You Cry" recently and her voice is horrendous, really out of tune.

just seen/heard Why Don't You Cry....ugh I don't know. she makes me eyeroll+cringe and intrigues me at the same time.

I know this is wrong of me, but I have a feeling I'd like this more if it came from someone else. just her name and whole image turns me off immensely. it's all kinda cool, but then some lyrics or the videos make me cringe like hell from all the pretentiousness

and her voice is awful and annoying, sometimes works though

The talent is there but she needs to learn how to find a key.

Still can't believe she released one of the best songs of 2015 just like that and barely anyone noticed. Unfortunately tho most songs on this are kinda awful tbh.
