Music video[edit]

'The clip celebrates Rye Rye's urban upbringing, with b-girl dance moves, double dutching, and pick-up games. The video is the second video of Rye Rye's to feature M.I.A., after her debut video "Bang". Contrary to sources' claims, the video was not shot in Rye Rye's hometown of Baltimore instead the video was shot by director Jess Holzworth, in the Greenpoint area of Brooklyn, NY.[3]
