“It means be an individual, you can’[t be afraid to be yourself…and you can’t let anyone tell you that that’s wrong…My mom and I we’re very strong…and I just know that because lots of people don’t act like themselves so they’re not happy.”
Roc Nation’s boss, Jay-Z released an official statement, saying he’s excited to have Willow on board.

Jay-Z has been singing praises for his newest artist, saying that he knew Willow was a star when he first met her, and even compared her to the young Michael Jackson.
“I heard the record first before I knew that it was recorded by a 9-year-old and J.Brown said ‘She’s 9′ and he said, she’s Will and Jada’s daughter….I met Willow and the first thing she said was ‘I’m really nervous,’..I knew right then she was a star. She’s a child, she has child innocence but she has clear vision of what she wants and who she wants to be…I don’t wanna go too far but I imagine that was how Michael Jackson was as a child.”
As a mentor, Jay-Z promised to help Willow Smith and even offered an advice:
“Just enjoy it, enjoy the process and have fun doing it….I’m gonna try to help her not let the music change any of those ideas. Stick to those ideas of who she is as a person.”

“After meeting with several record companies, it was clear that JAY-Z, Ty Ty, Jay Brown and the Roc Nation staff was the unquestionable choice. Their passion for Willow combined with their boundless vision and artistic integrity made Roc Nation the perfect home for our little girl.”
