Willow Smith ‘Fireball’ Video Heats Up With Nicki Minaj


At long last, Willow Smith‘s Hype Williams-helmed, Nicki Minaj-featured clip for ‘Fireball’ has touched down.

The much-heralded video, which was preceded by a 30-second trailer, finally debuted on BET’s ‘106 & Park’ on Dec. 7, during a special appearance by the 11-year-old singer, who also announced the title of her debut, ‘Knees & Elbows,’ which is scheduled for an April 3 release.

Introduced by a ‘Star Wars’-referenced opening scene, replete with signature roll-up text — Willow was 22 years away from being born when ‘Star Wars’ premiered — the petite entertainer gets the party started with a bejeweled eyepiece, backed by some fancy footwork in the streets, pyrotechnics and a toned down, big sis-style guest verse from Nicki, rocking a fluorescent teddy bear dress.

“Nicki Minaj is absolutely an amazing person. She has so much energy and working with her was like just a spark. We were coming together with all our art and everything and it was amazing,” Willow recently told Ryan Seacrest. “We didn’t really give each other ideas. We were just kind of talking about what, like, kind of what a fireball is. A fireball is somebody — it doesn’t have to be a girl or a boy — somebody that just goes out there and does what they want to do and is just so outgoing and tries new things and just is true to who they are.”
