Willow Smith's 'Whip My Hair' video: Watch it here

Will and Jada’s child empire continues to rise with the release of the video—leaked early today, then continually pulled until its official debut on 106 & Park tonight—for young Willow’s breakout single, “Whip My Hair.” And whip it she does, like Corey Glover minus the agit-rock politics and the scuba shortie suit.

I confess I was inclined at first to dismiss her quick rise as the worst kind of showbiz nepotism, and the pop stage as an entirely inappropriate and overly sexualized place for one so young. (Exception!) But this clip is about to put a boom in the chiropracting industry (with possible ancillary benefits for housepaint), because girl can snap it:

The track goes on sale digitally Tuesday, October 26, and Smith will make her live performance debut on Ellen November 2.
