It's been over a year since Willow Smith's Whip My Hair video went viral on the Internet and the pre-teen sensation is back with her third single Fireball featuring Nicki Minaj.
Smith is older (she's 10!) and wiser, and with Fireball, the daughter of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith looks to reclaim some of her pop cred after her lukewarm Whip My Hair follow-up, 21st Century Girl.
Fireball is a drum-heavy party jam that has Smith declaring herself the fireball of the party. Nicki Minaj jumps in at the two minute mark dropping her usual rapping eccentrics while mentioning Smith's famous parents.
If they come at you tell them to 'Raise up!' When it's time to whip your hair, put your braids ups! Minaj raps in a nod to Smith's Whip My Hair video.
After the unprecedented success of her first single, Smith has learned how to get her adoring public hyped for new songs.
My new single is coming soon, really soon, like maybe tomorrow soon, Smith tweeted via her Roc Nation-run Twitter page Wednesday night. She then adding the artwork for the song onto her Facebook page, which depicts the singer's signature nameplate inside an orange-lit fireball.
The 10-year-old starlet is currently putting the final touches on her debut album, an effort for which producer Ronald Jukebox Jackson has high praise.
I did like eight, nine songs on Willow, so right now, we're in the process of just trying to close out the album, Jackson told MTV. It's just the whole process. You got to think about it: She's a 10-year-old girl. She's gotta have a life, she's gotta be a kid.
Willow is kind of a combination of what 'Whip My Hair' was. Willow just isn't a pop star, she isn't just an urban artist; she's very international. A lot of her music has a very big influence of everything from rock to pop to hip-hop, Jackson added.
Meanwhile, Smith recently released a video of the first song I've ever written, which is very different from the dance-heavy Fireball.
I'm not sure if I'm gonna put it on the album, but I just wanted you guys' input in how it is because I've never really done this before. I'm very excited and I just want you guys to love it, she said in the video (below), which shows the pre-teen tapping into her many creative outlets to come up with an inspiring song.
