Willow Smith Covers Kid Cudi
When we spoke to Willow Smith last month, she told us her favorite album to listen to in 2011 was Kid Cudi’s Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager, citing that “it’s different, and it has a lot of feeling.” So it makes sense that the “Fireball” singer would be inspired to cover Cudi’s low-key song from that album, “All Along”, all while playing the piano, even if it’s pretty heavy material for a typically plucky 11-year-old. Watch below.
If you’re digging Willow’s stripped-down take on the tune, here’s Cudi’s original:
This cover should throw more fuel on the rumors that Cudder will make a guest appearance on Willow’s debut album, Knees & Elbows (out April 3).
