Willow Smith and Nicki Minaj Get Fierce and Playful When Filming 'Fireball' Video
Willow Smith is going to bring her studio collaboration with Nicki Minaj to the screen. The daughter of celebrity couple Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, along with the Young Money femcee, has filmed visuals for their duet track "Fireball" in Los Angeles over the weekend.
The "Whip My Hair" hitmaker looked fierce wearing a gold-themed outfit and a pair of boots, while the "Super Bass" rapper got playful rocking a bright-colored wig and a dress made of stuffed animals. "I'm the newest member of the family! Lmaoooooo. How cute are they barbz???? Willow goin ham in the video," she tweeted.
"Fireball" is recorded for Willow's upcoming debut studio album which is yet to be titled. In the heavy-bass banger, the pint-sized singer shows off her fun, sassy side while at the same time staying true to her age. "I'm the fireball of the party. I'm the fire, I'm the fireball of the party," she kicks in. "Watch the fire burn. Burn. Watch me heat it up."
Talking about their collaboration, Willow gushed to Access Hollywood, "It was really great because the first time I heard her on the actual track, I was like 'Who's that?' And they said 'Oh, it's Nicki.' I said 'Oh my gosh, that's so great!' I just got really excited so I'm really grateful for that." She added, "We recorded [the song] in two different places, so I got to meet her at the BET Awards and it was really cool."
Willow said the encounter was a brief one and they didn't talk about any duet, so when people informed her than Nicki will rap on her song, it's a total surprise for her. "It was a surprise for me," she recalled. "They told me she was going to be on it, but I was like 'That's not gonna happen.' Then later on, they told me 'She's on the song' and I was like 'That's awesome'."
