36. Willow Smith
The 10-year-old daughter of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith struck gold with the massive party anthem “Whip My Hair.” But the pint-sized mini-diva’s second single, “21st Century Girl,” fell flat, peaking at No. 99, and her Nicki Minaj-aided follow-up “Fireball” failed to chart at all. However, with mentors like Jay-Z on her side, Smith has all the wisdom (and time) in the world to grow her career. Smith’s dad has announced a remake of the classic film “Little Orphan Annie” starring his daughter. Jay-Z is in talks to provide music. —Jeff Royer
