  • Oh, here we go.

  • Make it stop

  • Famous for being the child of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett.

  • “samples” or “rips off because she has no musical talent and relies on her parents’ fame to make it” ?

  • what a bunch of crap

  • WTF

  • For the love of God please tell me this was an unauthorized sample and a lawsuit is forthcoming…

  • kill it quick before it lays eggs!

  • For the love of God please tell me this was an unauthorized sample and a lawsuit is forthcoming… X2.

  • I like her version better

  • she’s 12…so what.

  • Terrible. Poor girl. She doesn’t sing that bad, but wtf did she do there? She assassinated Codex. I’ll have to agree with: “For the love of God, please tell me it was an unauthorized sample and a lawsuit is forthcoming”… x3.

  • Is it still considered “sampling” when you literally just use the entire track and replace the vocals? This may be an entire new genre of recording. We can take the talentless, over-privileged children of celebrity millionaires and have them just change the lyrics to great songs. Shiloh Jolie-Pitt presents, “Swinging My Coach Purse” sung to the tune of Nirvana’s “Lithium”. KA-CHING!

    • My thoughts exactly! This is not a “sample”. She just took the entire song and laid it behind and said a bunch of sad sentences over top.

  • looks like what you guys were saying was right warner chappell have taken the vid down i was wondering why rh were so lazzire fare about this!

  • Better than I expected it to be. Very nice actually.
    Very sad lyrics and a bit too sad for a 12 year old.. I suppose this was written by a team of writers but if she wrote this herself – wow.

  • Free Break Up Spells

  • Come on, guys. She’s just a kid experimenting with music, leave her be. Although I don’t particularly like her songs aswell, I think she’s doing no harm.

  • Am I the only one that kind of likes it? She obviously has good taste.
