JAY-Z described Smith's new song 'Whip My Hair' as a hit, before adding "I was like, Man, that record's a smash. And then Jay Brown (Roc Nation partner) said she's 9 and I was like, 'Whoa!' And [then] he was like, 'She's Will and Jada's daughter' and I was like 'Whoa!' and it just went from there." The rapper also spoke of the first time he met his new artist when she was travelling with her family in Japan, he said, "She walked in and the first thing she said was, 'I'm really nervous,' and I thought, 'That's maturity to explain exactly how she was feeling when she walked right into the room"
