You may have lost track of Willow Smith after you got over her first single ‘Whip My Hair‘, released in 2010. Maybe that’s because she underwent a complete artistic metamorphosis as she entered adolescence, becoming a sort of archaeology freak, if the title of her debut album is anything to go by. ‘ARDIPITHECUS‘, which came out at the tail end of 2015, had critics scratching their heads, unable to quite relate with her journey to self-discovery.
Willow’s latest musical sortie is a mystical collaboration with someone you associate more with movies than music. Most folks will remember Michael Cera for his roles in an assortment of comedy flicks including 2010’s ‘Youth in Revolt’. But apparently the Canadian actor has a musical streak, which he displays by handling the production on ‘twentyfortyeight 2.0’. As Willow gives voice to the images floating through her mind, a meshwork of keys and muted percussion arranged by Cera provides a dreamy ambiance. Too bad it all ends just as you’re beginning to drift away.
