Willow Smith's "F Q-C #7" Video Showcases Her Different Chakras [WATCH]
Willow Smith continues her slinky neo-soul sound on a new self-produced single called "F Q-C #7" -- pronounced "Frequency Number Seven." Along with the song, she also unveiled its video, which she self-directed. The clip sees the youngest Smith child wearing different colors and donning face paint, which she said represents her different Chakras.
She spoke to The Fader about the concept saying, "The different Me's represent my Chakras. Yellow is Self-confidence, Blue is my voice (song), Red is my survival instinct, and the Black is a combination of everything (the true me)."
On the song, Smith sings, "I'm just climbing on trees and skipping my class now," an idea she brought up in an interview with the New York Times last year.
"I went to school for one year. It was the best experience but the worst experience," she told them. "The best experience because I was, like, 'Oh, now I know why kids are so depressed.' But it was the worst experience because I was depressed."
The song was inspired by Philadelphia-based teen girl band Girlpool as well as tUnE-yArDs and Cree Summer.
"[They] were really the women who inspired me to make this song," she said.
Speaking to the publication last year, she said her lyrics are the focal point of her art and the production added to them are meant to highlight the words.
"I'm just coming to the spiritual and consciousness aspects of it," she told them. "My lyrics are probably what's gonna be packing the most punch, and my tracks are in the background just coolin it, like, 'Hear what she just said?'"
As previously reported, Willow will join her older brother Jaden for a performance at the New Look Wireless Festival in London this July joining headliners Drake, Avicii, David Guetta, Nicki Minaj,Kendrick Lamar, Jessie J, Mary J. Blige, Childish Gambino, A$AP Rocky and a number of other artists.
