Willow Smith shows us what it takes to be a '21st Century Girl' with the making of her second video release.
The 10-year-old rising superstar explains that her new hit is about girls "walking towards their goal[s]" and "thriving to be the best." Rich Lee -- who has worked with big names such as the Black Eyed Peas, Eminem and the Pussycat Dolls -- directs the two-day California shoot.
Willow's mama, actress Jada Pinkett-Smith, is apparently very involved in the creative process of her baby-girl's career. We see Jada lead a pre-production style meeting where it's decided that the video will maintain Willow's super colorful and playful signature style, but get "grittier" than the look in her 'Whip My Hair' debut.
The concept for the desert scenes in the video is based on the book 'Women Who Run With the Wolves' by Clarissa Pinkola-Estes and a visibly proud Jada explains, "We're in this desert, but the power of the woman is that she can create anything out of nothing." Willow and her fellow 21st century sidekicks create a thriving metropolis -- shot in downtown Los Angeles -- in the middle of a barren desert wasteland.
Willow gets a fist pound behind the scenes from dad Will Smith, who is also on set. Willow's debut album for Jay-Z's Roc Nation label will feature collaborations with her famous dad's former hip-hop partner, DJ Jazzy Jeff. Willow is also killing it on the live stage -- she's currently whipping her hair on tour in Europe with Justin Bieber.
