Last we heard from Willow Smith, the Fresh Princess had departed from her hair-whipping antics of old to showcase a more melancholy side of her artistic vision on January’s Sugar & Spice. While the overall reception was positive, some Boothgoers expressed doubt that the path she was treading would lead to commercial success. Well, it seems that Smith is determined to follow her muse whenever it may lead her, as newly-released promo single Drowning doubles down on its predecessor’s morose vibe. Over uncredited producer’s stark piano backdrop, the artist showcases her always-impressive vocal chops as she spins a tragic tale of love and loss. Singer Mecca Kalani, a Booth newcomer, assists on the guest tip. This mournful ballad isn’t part of a larger set but, if it’s struck a chord, you can keep it locked for all the latest from the rising teen-pop star.
