With additional reporting by Cory Midgarden
Fresh off their performance of 'Drop That Kitty' at the 2015 MTV Movie Awards, Ty Dolla $ign , Charli XCX and Tinashe decided to drop that video.
After giving us a little tease of the clip, the trio dropped the full video, which includes dancing, bike riding and, not surprisingly, dancing cat heads. So now we know exactly what it looks like when a kitty drops it down low.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IkUIFYL7Zpo
The dance-heavy video, which Charli XCX said was inspired by Snoop Dogg's 'Gin and Juice,' is all about a 'dude hanging out with his homeys' and features Ty in front of old-school muscle cars and cruising on a low-rider bike.
But it wasn't all fun and games on set. In fact, there were a couple near-death experiences.
'I nearly crashed a chopper bike and died,' Charli told MTV News. 'And also that's such a stupid thing to do because everyone can ride a bike apart from me. They had to put a tricycle, like what kids use -- stabilizers -- I had to have stabilizers on my chopper, which was not cool at all.'
It wasn't just Charli who had a bit of bad luck, it seemed Tinashe did as well. 'It did start raining, so you know when it comes to hair and makeup and rain it's nearly a near-death experience,' she said.
But there was plenty to celebrate on the video shoot. For one thing, Wiz Khalifa was there and made a cameo, and two, it was Tinashe's 22nd birthday (February 6), so Ty 'surprised her with a mini-birthday cake.'
