America’s favorite 10-year-old pop star has “whipped” up another video.

Willow Smith, daughter of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, debuted another catchy dance video this weekend that’s guaranteed to shake hips from middle school dances to grown-up dance clubs. The video was shot over two days in a desert, which transforms into a modern city of skateboards and skyscrapers.

“21st Century Girl” is an obvious girl power anthem, and Willow even wears a “Boys need training” T-shirt throughout. The video opens with an old woman, who tells Willow a secret at the end of the bridge, enabling her to create a butterfly out of the sand. When she finishes dancing, Willow passes on a secret to a toddler, who ends the video creating another butterfly from sand.

Does NewsFeed detect a trend in Willow’s videos? In “Whip My Hair” Willow turned a blank room colorful, splattering paint across her set. In “21st Century Girl,” Willow creates a modern metropolis from a barren desert. We just can’t wait to see what the girl who has the power to make something fabulous out of nothing pulls out of her faux-hawk next.
