The 10-year-old singer is thinking about recording one of her dad Will Smith’s first hits.

Willow Smith is not shy about saying what an influence her parents, Will Smith 42, and Jada Pinkett Smith, 39, have been on her, and now the tween star is thinking of doing her own version of one of her dad’s first hits, the 1988 pop anthem, “Parents Just Dont Understand,” which he recorded back when he was known as The Fresh Prince.

“There’s a possibility that I will,” the 10-year-old singer, whose first hit “Whip My Hair” is still an internet sensation, said in an interview with Yahoo! Music. “It’s a really great song.”

The ironic choice of that particular song, of course, is that, in Willow’s case, her parents really do understand, since they’re both in show business and have been guiding her career. In fact, Willow says in the interview that one of the best pieces of advice she got from her folks was, “Have fun, because if you’re not having fun, there’s really no point. Though sometimes it really is work.”
