    Willow Smith ft. SZA - "9"

    It's hard to imagine that the same girl who released "Whip My Hair" a few years ago would be teaming up with artists like SZA and making an EP as strong as III. But if there's anything we've learned from both Willow Smith and her brother Jaden in the past few months, it's that the two are maturing, and it's time we embrace it. Willow's airy vocals on "9" flow over the song's gauzy production as she explores coming of age. It's a huge step from where she's been, and one that shows just how far she can go.—Katie K.
