Willow Smith, the 10-year-old daughter of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, has dropped another fun dance/R&B single, this time featuring female R&B star Nicki Minaj. It’s called “Fireball” and we like the bass/percussion-heavy sound of this one.

The single is Willow’s third offering, following up 2010’s “Whip My Hair” and “21st Century Girl,” which was released earlier this year. “Whip” went platinum in the U.S. and Australia. “21st Century” did not fare as well, but perhaps she’ll bounce back with “Fireball.”

“Fireball” is produced by Stoopid Boots. Nicki Minaj joins in about two minutes into the single, rapping, “I’m the Street Fighter, call me Chun-Li/ And
it’s going down like a bum knee/ Built the guest house to put the coupe
in cause I’m a fireball, Hadouken! Put your arm on my wing, I’m the top boss/ Ain’t from Louisiana, but I’m hot sauce.”

Hot sauce, indeed. What do you think of Willow’s third single?
