9 Year Old Hip-Hop Sensation Makes Her Music Video Debut

Little Miss Hit Maker and potential diva-to-be Willow Smith will premiere the music video for her first single today, according to Gossip On This.

Willow has announced on Twitter (@OfficialWillow) this morning that she's making her video debut via Vevo and BET's 106 & Park. She has also made an exclusive video teaser available to give fans a preview. I can't wait to see the moves she'll throw down...not to mention all the hair whipping, of course.

The video also reportedly features some guest stars who will be whipping their hair right along with Willow. There's no word yet on who those guest stars may be, but considering she's got ties with Roc Nation and she's Will Smith's daughter, it's probably safe to assume we'll be seeing some very famous familiar faces. Get it, girl!

It was only a month ago that she released the song "Whip My Hair" and got signed by Jay-Z almost immediately. Even though her dad probably helped hook that up, I'm still proud of her for being such an accomplished youngin'. Damn, what's up with all these kids being more successful than me? First came Justin Bieber (who will always be 12 years old in my eyes -- I don't care that he has started kissing girls now), and now a hip-hop prodigy who is less than half my age. I think I'll go cry in a corner now.
