Becky G Gets Steamy, Not Sweaty In New ‘Break A Sweat’ Video
If you find yourself running out of steam after just a few minutes on the treadmill, "don't get tired yet," because petite Mexican-American pop dynamo Becky G is hear to cheer you on in her new video.
On Friday (Oct. 9), the YouTube-discovered singer-dancer and Empire actress (she plays Valentina on the hit FOX show) dropped the video for her latest single, "Break A Sweat." And while Becky does dance up a storm in the clip, she does not, so far as we can see, actually break any sweat in the video. (Damn girl, tell us which setting powder you use! We do not come out of the club or the gym looking that matte.)
The video itself is a somewhat more grown-up, sexy affair than the cutesy bubbble-gum concepts of videos past. It's also a little all over the place, but that's part of the fun: There's a Hollaback Girl-style marching band, a surreal Salvador-Dali-meets-Tumblr CGI landscape (through which Becky struts with commanding confidence), and a futuristic, neon-bathed choreographed dancing scene that looks like a cross between Tron and motocross.
Becky looks super cute, too, rocking an assortment of edgy, sporty outfits, including statement pieces like a space-age silver metallic coat, a sexy black leather mini-skirt, a checkerboard biker jacket, and a luxe, bead-embellished hoodie. (And CoverGirl lipstick! And Beats headphones! And CORE Water!) There's also something a little K-pop—a little 2NE1 "I Am The Best" perhaps—about the styling and overall aesthetic, but we can't quite put our finger on it.
Again, while the 18-year-old pop artist doesn't actually get sweaty in the video, she does show her steamy side—and we like it.
