So, you know how whenever Willow Smith says something, it can seem a little out there at first, but then, at the same time it seems really deep? Well, queue up her latest single for a two-minute dose of that same kind of thing. The video for “F Q-C #7,” which according to Fader means “Frequency Number Seven,” dropped yesterday and is a compilation of Willow (decked out in what looks to be tribal-inspired face paintings) singing about seemingly random stuff, while she runs through fields, climbs trees, sits by creeks, and walks through city streets.
It opens with her asking, “How you feelin’?” And when we don’t answer (because duh), she goes ahead and tells us how she’s feeling, which is apparently “so weak.” We think it has something to do with the fact that she’s been in class all week. But then, she tells us she’s been skipping class to climb on trees. She legit says this.
While all this is going on, you also see four Willows. “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),” she told Fader.
And then it’s back to asking how we’re feeling, and then again how we’re feeling after she gives us some sort of amethyst crystal. For real. (Turns out, since ancient times, people have believed those crystals to be filled with creative and spiritual energies.) But then, we find out she’s not asking how WE are feeling at all! She’s asking someone (a guy she likes, maybe?) who she saw walking down the hallway (at school?), but she didn’t call out to him because she thought he didn’t want her. (Is that why she’s been skipping? To avoid seeing him? And just how did she get into his house to slip a crystal under his pillow? Yeah, we don’t really know either.)
Before it ends, Willow tells us one more thing: “I been climbin’ in trees and jumpin’ in creeks, tell ya right now.” Oh, ok then. So many questions.
On the real, though, this song is pretty catchy. We’ve already watched the video five times and can’t help but sing along. Watch the entire video here:
