“I heard the record first before I knew it was recorded by a nine year old. I knew it was a smash. Jay Brown said she was nine and I said Whoa!…Then he said she’s Will and Jada’s daughter and I said Whoa! Whoa! and it went from there. I met Willow out in Japan and the first thing she said was ‘I’m really nervous.’ And I thought that maturity explained exactly how she was feeling. I knew right then she was a star.” – Jay-Z
