Willow Smith pays tribute to pop-punk with her new single “Transparent Soul,” featuring Travis Barker on the drums. The song draws from the music of Paramore, Fall Out Boy, and Barker’s own band Blink-182, with hard-hitting percussion and pop-punk power chords on guitar. In the lyrics, Smith calls out the fakes and the liars she’s known with sneering confidence: “I knew a boy just like you/He’s a snake just like you/Such a fake just like you/But I can see the truth.” “Transparent Soul” is accompanied by a video featuring Smith dressed in classic punk attire — spiked collars and all.
