“Wait a minute” everyone, Willow Smith is back and better than ever! Whether you know him as an iconic Smith family member, or through his music from his “Whip My Hair” days, you should know how talented this star is. If you’ve long forgotten how iconic she is, though, she’s here to remind you with her new single “Transparent Soul”.
A rock star?
Willow Smith is bringing back pop punk with his guitar-heavy new single “Transparent Soul” featuring pop punk icons and drummer Travis Barker from Blink-182. From the very beginning, you can tell that Willow Smith is very different from songs like “Wait a minute”. “Transparent Soul” begins with a bang, a loud “One, two, three, four!” To stop singing.
From there, it plays the loud yet head-boppy guitar melodies and the drumming from the legendary Travis Barker, and it also features any pop punk from bands such as Blink-182, Good Charlet, or All Time Low in the early 2000s. Reminiscent of the song. Though coupled with Willow’s beautiful, dark vocals, it transforms this nostalgic-sounding pop punk track into something modern and unique.
We don’t know about you, but so far, we are completely obsessed with this song, and most people agree online. @ Chicagosoftc0re wrote on Twitter:Willow Smith is a young, queer, black woman entering the rock industry after dominating the alternative R&B scene. He still has so much power

All about upcoming albums
For the “Wait a Minute” singer, Willow Smith has confirmed that this will be her first song from the twenty-year-old upcoming rock-rock album, so yeah guys, we’ll get some more of those catchy pop-punk tunes! “I am very grateful for this tune because it was made during such an introspection time (during the first few months of quarantine), ”the singer said in a press release.
Willow said, “It was the song that proved to me that I needed to overcome my sense of insecurity about making this genre project”. If you’re familiar with any music released in previous years before “Transparent Soul”, then you should know that the genre she’s known for is more than R&B, chill, Dreamy, pop vibes . However, Starr stated that it was actually her mother who inspired this new stylistic change.

When she was younger, she went on tour with Jada Pinkett Smith’s nu-metal band, Wicked Wisdom, which led her to an upcoming album as well as other rock / pop punk bands such as My Chemical Romance, Paramore, Fall Out Boy, and Inspired for more. Smith said she was inspired by her mother’s voice with “power”, and “I never felt like I could sing that kind of music because I was always trained for R&B and pop songs”.
“I realized that it is not my voice that cannot sing this kind of music. I was afraid to sing this kind of music because I was not sure what people would think ”, she said. However, we’re glad she took this risk of changing her musical style because we’re loving “Transparent Soul”, and we can’t wait to hear her upcoming Al-Rock album.
