WILLOW & Avril Lavigne release 'G R O W' video

Today, WILLOW has premiered the music video for ‘G R O W’, from her acclaimed album lately I feel EVERYTHING. The video was directed by Dana Trippe and had its broadcast premiere today on MTV Live, mtvU and the iconic Viacom Times Square billboards. The original recording features pop-punk legends Avril Lavigne and Travis Barker.

With her fifth album lately I feel EVERYTHING (via Roc Nation/MSFTSMusic/Polydor), a decade of growth both in the industry and as a young woman come to a head. The album is a love letter to that constant evolution. In the short months since the release, lately I feel EVERYTHING has amassed 270 million global streams. It’s meteoric single ‘t r a n s p a r e n t s o u l (feat. Travis Barker)’ has netted over 200 million global streams alone and is RIAA Certified Gold. “Easily the best and most assured music of her career so far,” said The New Yorker. “The album is the first to maximize her talents, externalizing the pent-up, dialled-up angst of her adolescence.”

Tonight, WILLOW will wrap up a major SOLD OUT headlining tour that took her all across the U.S. She’ll return to the road in February, 2022 supporting Billie Eilish. Highlights include two nights at Madison Square Garden in New York City on February 18th and 19th and The Forum in Inglewood, California on April 8th.

"A guitar-heavy track that sees the rap star take a significant sonic shift and swap intricate lyrical flows for thrash-y pop-punk powerchords...Wielding an Ernie Ball Music Man St. Vincent signature, Smith serves up a series of sweet melodic slides and oversized open-string chordal hooks over a moody bass guitar line, all of which are driven along by Barker’s high-octane drum part." - Guitar World
