Young Money star Nicki Minaj now has another crew to call her own after getting recruited to appear in power couple Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith's pop star daughter Willow Smith's "Fireball" music video.
Hopping on Twitter over the weekend, Nicki showed an on-set photo with the Smith family.
"Video Shoot," she tweeted Saturday (November 6).

Nicki Minaj added some fuel to Willow Smith's "Fireball" video shoot on Saturday (Nov. 5). The Harajuku Barbie got dolled up in a curly pink wig, her signature Barbie chain, and a short dress made of stuffed animals, while shooting the clip with the 11-year-old pop star in Los Angeles. (Rap-Up)
Their duet hit the Internet in early October.
Willow Smith and Nicki Minaj unleash their "Fireball". It's a new duet song recorded for the "Whip My Hair" hitmaker's upcoming debut album. Like what she did in her chart-busting debut single, the pint-sized singer shows off her fun, sassy side while at the same time staying true to her age. "I'm the fireball of the party. I'm the fire, I'm the fireball of the party," 10-year-old Willow kicks in the heavy-bass banger. "Watch the fire burn. Burn. Watch me heat it up." Nicki then joins her by throwing some playful verses, "You're real major even though you're a minor/ Your daddy keep you in designer." (Ace Showbiz)
Last year, Nicki had prerecorded vocals featured on Smith's "Whip My Hair" hit single remix.
Duets don't come much more 2010 than this. Yes, someone up above was listening to Popdash's dreams these past few months and has made the ultimate cartoon pop duet happen. That's right. Nicki Minaj has hopped out oh her Willy Wonka coloured tank and put a verse down on the first official 'Whip My Hair' remix. Rapping about her school days, playing Double Dutch in the yard Nicki brings her usual A-List rhymes and unbeatable character to a song already burting with swagger and attitude. (Pop Dash)
