Willow Chats About ‘Fireball’ and Nicki Minaj With Ryan Seacrest
The wise-beyond-her-years 11-year-old said she collaborated with the hip-hop star on her latest single, and recently shot a video for it in Los Angeles with the whole Smith family on set. "Nicki Minaj is absolutely an amazing person," Willow gushed. "She has so much energy and working with her was like, just like sparks. We were coming together with all our art and it was amazing."
As for the song, the fashion-minded singer says it's about being an individual. She explained, "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."
Willow's debut album is set to arrive on April 3, and while there are rumors of collaborations with Justin Bieber, Rihanna and Jay-Z, the singer remained tight-lipped about what's in store. "I can't say," she dutifully said. "It'll be a surprise."
