Wilough (Willow Smith): November 9th
on 14 November 2016
The sublime Willow Smith, working under the name Wilough, has released a song inspired by last week's election, but unlike many artists' responses, the 16-year-old's song is full of hope and beauty. Titled "November 9th," Smith's short (under two minutes) but sweet track is tender and minimal. With lyrics including, "Take my hand and you will see / Sadness and anger aren’t everything," the song nods toward and encourages a future of togetherness.
