Willow Smith, 9-year-old fashionista/actress, daughter to superstar parents Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, and sister to Karate Kid 2010 actor extraordinaire Jaden Smith, is on her own mission to superstardom.

Willow's new debut single "Whip My Hair" was just leaked out, and everyone's talking (about how she sounds as good as Rihanna; seriously, it's uncanny, especially for a 9-year-old). So look out, Rihanna. Hello, Willow.

Listen to Willow Smith's forthcoming single after the jump.

Willow Smith, although probably inspired by Rihanna to some extent, is rocking her own adorable style -- mohawk included -- and now her own single.

"I whip my hair back and forth (just whip it). I whip my hair back and forth (whip it real good)," she sings in the super-catchy tune. I can most see the hair flippage and the dance moves she's probably preparing for her first music video.

I'm sold and completely cuted out.

Here's what they're saying on Twitter:

Bieber video director Alfredo Flores:

"WHAT!!??! Willow Smith just KILLED "Whip My Hair"... Rihanna, Keri, Ciara, Ashanti -- please be warned."

Singer Solange Knowles:

"Willow Smith make me wanna whip some haiiirrr in this house. Ummm kill em girl. Kill em!"

Singer and new DWTS cast member Brandy:

"Ok these lil Smith kids are AMAZING!! I whip my hair back and forth... Ms Willow is not to be played with!!"

Television personality and Internet celebrity B. Scott:


Twitterer MzzChi:

"I can just imagine an emergency phonecall btween Keri, Ciara, and Ashanti. 'Girl what we gon do bout this Willow Smith?'"
