Willow Smith Debuts Whip My Hair Video
Willow Smith, the 9-year-old daughter of Hollywood stars Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, has premiered the new video for her song 'Whip My Hair'. Despite leaking online yesterday (18th October 2010), the video had its 'official' debut on the US music show '106 & Park' last night.
The clip opens in a classroom filled with young children, looking tired and bored, before Smith enters and begins to dance, which leads to the students following suit. The teacher eventually gets involved, and a handclapping breakdown see's Willow and friends show off their dancing skills. The singing sensation is set to perform the song in front of a live audience on the Ellen Degeneres show on Tuesday November 2nd 2010, reports MTV News.
The 9-year-old is now thought to be recording her debut album, after signing to JAY-Z's 'Roc Nation' label. The music mogul told Ryan Seacrest in a radio interview that he first heard 'Whip My Hair' before he knew it had been recorded by Smith, saying, "I was like, Man, that record's a smash. And then JAY BROWN said, 'She's 9' and I was like, 'Whoa!' And then he was like, 'She's Will and Jada's daughter', and I was like, 'Whoa!' and it just went from there".
