Jay-Z, who signed the mini-diva to his record label, calls Will Smith’s daughter a superstar, even comparing her to the late Michael Jackson.
“You have to start somewhere and when you have that sort of talent and when you have that sort of vision, then there’s no such thing as too young,” Jay-Z said in reference to Smith, according to Actress Archives. “Everyone said, ‘I can’t believe that…you like a record by a nine year old.’ But we’ve all danced to Michael Jackson records when he was eight, and Stevie Wonder.”
Teen sensation Justin Bieber had this to say about Smith’s video via twitter: It’s CRAZY!! She is killin em! GET READY!”
Smith, who said she’d like to collaborate with Lady Gaga, sports a variety of hair styles in her new music video. “Don’t matter if it’s long, short,” the young artist sings, “Do it. Do it. Whip your hair.”
Smith begins the video by walking into a colorless room filled with monotonous peers. She then dips her dreads into paint, and proceeds to, well, whip her hair and douse the room with color.
Smith is not only a hip hop star. She also acts on the big screen like her father, and her 12-year-old brother Jaden, who starred in the latest “Karate Kid” movie. Jaden makes a cameo in Smith’s video.
It won’t be the last time these syblings are seen working together. Smith and her brother are expected to co-star in the fantasy film, “Amulet.”
Smith’s acting debut came at the age of seven, when she worked with her dad in the movie “I am Legend.”
Here is Smith’s new music video, “Whip My Hair”:
