Willow Smith’s “Whip My Hair” video has quickly become a pop culture phenomenon and YouTube has the numbers to prove it!

There’s no doubt that everyone has fallen in love with 9-year-old Willow Smith and her song “Whip My Hair,” but the surprising thing is that she’s beating out heavy hitters in the music biz, like Rihanna, 22, for top video views on YouTube!

Rihanna’s video for “Only Girl (in the World)” was posted Oct. 14 and has reached 3,518,973 (and counting!) views. That’s not small peanuts for the multi-platinum music star, but from the looks of it, she’s got some serious competition!

Willow Smith, daughter of mega movie stars, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith, has hit the music scene running with her song “Whip My Hair.” Her viewing numbers since the video premiere Oct. 19 have gone beyond expectation and trumped Rihanna with 4,909,999 (and counting!) views!

Wow! We are totally impressed that a 9-year-old can possess so much talent and charisma to steal the spotlight from a seasoned artist like Rihanna!
