Early in November we got a few snapshots of Nicki Minaj and Willow Smith sporting colorful outfits on the set of “Fireball” and the video finally debuted on Wednesday night’s (December 7) episode of “106 and Park.” During the video’s filming, Minaj had so much fun that she even tweeted a photo of herself with the Smith family clan.
Directed by Roman Lee, “Fireball” is a simplistic take on Smith’s sassy and youthful energy. It begins with a shot of a deserted sidewalk and cuts to a scene of the 11-year-old singer in front of blazing flames in an elaborately decked out ensemble, including a headpiece. As dancers perform a choreographed routine, Smith is seen strutting down the street with everlasting swag and attitude.
It’s not long before Young Willow also shows her dancing skills when she joins in on the extravaganza, throwing in a few hair whips here and there. Minaj visits the street takeover soon after in an over-the-top dress made of fluorescent-colored teddy bears and matching fur boots. While streetlights glimmer on the wet pavement, the Young Money diva dances beside the singer as she spits her guest verse.
In a recent interview with Ryan Seacrest, Smith gushed about working with the rapper saying, “Nicki Minaj is absolutely an amazing person. She has so much energy, and working with her was like just [a] spark. We were coming together with all our art and everything, and it was amazing.”
