The Andre Bato-directed music video channels the distinct cinematography of Hype Williams’ Belly — particularly the opening sequence of the cult classic film — as a very intense dance battle takes place during a Kaytranada DJ set. Among those dancing in the battle are Tight Eyez and Big Mijo, two professional dancers credited as the creators of krumping. Masego, who is featured on the track, also appears in the video.

Back in February, Kaytranada shared the music video for “10%.” Last last year, the producer and DJ revealed that he wanted to quickly release another album following the release of his latest project, Bubba.

“There’s just so many tracks that didn’t make it,” he said in an interview with Zane Lowe. “I intended to put it out in two parts, I’m definitely going to do something different on the next one.”

Earlier this month, Kaytra shared a couple of unreleased collaborations he has during an Instagram Live with Anderson .Paak.
