Willow Previews Scorching ‘Fireball’ Video
In keeping with the shroud of mystery surrounding the single, the video doesn't reveal much. The clip opens with breaking news reports of a "massive fireball" and a "mysterious burning object" that "lights up the night sky," set to the beat and faint background vocals of 'Fireball.' One cause for concern? A faux newscaster says that the "fireball" is "streaking through the night sky." Will, Jada -- we hope that's not the kind of streaking that happens on college campuses, or there may be some legal repercussions! Kidding!
The clip takes a literal approach to 'Fireball,' though Willow explained to Ryan Seacrest that the track is simply about being yourself. "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," she told Seacrest.
The preview closes with flames, emblazoned with Willow Smith and Nicki Minaj's names, as well as the premiere date. The full video drops on Dec. 7 on BET's '106th & Park.'
