Roaming the city alone, the 'Whip My Hair' hitmaker sings about staying true to herself though people often criticize her look.
Willow Smith spreads a "Be Yourself" message in her latest music video in support of her new song "I Am Me". Premiered during the 2012 BET Awards, the clip shows the 11-year-old raptress roaming around the High Line and Washington Square Park alone.
Rocking an oversized yellow polkadot shirt and skinny jeans paired with a round hat, Willow is seen strolling down the park on a skateboard, playing a mini keyboard, and singing against the backdrop of a graffiti wall.
Through the ballad song, the younger sister of Jaden Smith aims to share her thoughts about finding her identity and how she often deals with criticisms on her choices of outfits. "It's just explaining who I am and what symbolizes me-like me as an energy, me as a person, just cool and rounded," the pint-sized singer once said of her song.
"I Am Me" will likely be included in Willow's upcoming studio effort. However, Jay-Z's Roc Nation has yet to announce when the album will be dropped in the United States.
