Willow Smith Wants Us to Go to Mecca. We Must

Illustration for article titled Willow Smith Wants Us to Go to Mecca. We Must

We’ve already established that Willow Smith is as free as a strange bird and that she is my, our chosen leader. Her latest song is an airy heartbeat of a groove that totally has me swaying and wanting to meander through the forest on a nature adventure.


Willow’s serene vocals gently drift in and out, singing, “Let’s run to Mecca/We’ll walk their mountains and skip their stones”—so peacefully that I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s some subliminal messaging laced throughout.

The song, naturally, is titled “WEEPINGWILOUGH/LETSGOTOMECCA.”

I think by the time we’re 30 or 20, we’re going to be climbing as many mountains as we can possibly climb.” -Willow

The irony is that a free spirited, independent young woman with New Agey views like Willow Smith would not be super welcome at Mecca.
