Willow Smith Drops Surprise Debut Album Ardipithecus: “I Was in Such a Transitional State”.

Over the past few years, Smith and her brother Jaden have talked to interviewers about their interest in philosophy and unique ideas about the space-time continuum.

The 15-year-old singer quietly dropped her debut album, Ardipithecus, on Friday, Dec. 11, proving to fans that she’s come a long way from 2011’s hit “Whip My Hair.” Smith, who hinted at the important release date via Twitter this past week, wasted no words releasing her LP to the world, though she did give a statement to The Fader as to the origins of her album’s unique name. “Ardipithecus Ramidus is the scientific name of the first hominid bones found on earth,” she told the music site via email. “I wanted to name my musical compilation after it because while I was making these songs I was in such a transitional state. Some of these ideas echo throughout Willow’s strange, shapeshifting trip of an album (its very name is a reference to evolution, of both humankind and Willow herself). Her older half-brother Trey Smith (aka AcE) is listed on three tracks, and frequent collaborator JABS is also given a nod. “Ardipithecus is my first album in my entire career and it makes me feel so blessed to be able to share my evolution with the LightEaters as I continue excavating my inner worlds…” she continued, adding that “these songs were created through characters I have developed within my mind.”
