Despite all sorts of curmudgeonly laws about transporting 10-year-olds across state lines, we are happy to report that the one and only Willow Smith will be in town next Saturday, performing at the Highline Ballroom as part of Power 105.1’s Power Live Holiday Party. This and the fact that she’s not a grown-up explains why the show is taking place at 3 p.m. in the afternoon (full lunch menu available), and why you can only win tickets through Power 105.1. However we have some pretty informed guesses about her setlist:
“Whip My Hair”
Jay-Z comes out and talks about magic
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith come out and sprinkle fairy dust on their daughter until she falls asleep.
This is pretty much exactly how the New York unveiling of Smith’s fellow Roc Nation signee Jay Electronica went a few weeks back, so just go ahead and trust us. No idea if civilians are really gonna be able to get into this thing, but feel free to try, no one here will judge you. That song is a jam, after all…
