Charli XCX’s ‘Drop That Kitty’ Video is More Literal Than We Expected
The music vide for the Charli XCX, Ty Dolla $ign and Tinashe collaboration "Drop That Kitty," is finally here and it's a little different from what we expected.
The video features Charli -- who's decked out in a super sassy white crop top with the words "Handle with care" emblazoned across the front -- starting off the track while standing in front of a grocery store. Flanked on either side of her are two dancers with giant cat faces super-imposed over their human heads. Clearly a nod to the title and hook of the track, it's an oddly surreal moment of the video that carries through to Tinashe's parking lot dance sequence.
Tinashe, by the way, kills it onscreen -- you almost don't notice the weirdo cat-heads in the background. Meanwhile, Ty Dolla $ign rides around in a convertible for part of the video, and Wiz Khalifa, O.T. Genasis and DJ Mustard all make cameos in the visual -- so be sure to keep an eye out for those guys. It's a fun video for the track, and we kind of love the fact that the cat-heads are these really casual, unquestioned parts of each scene.
It isn't totally surprising, though, especially for Charli XCX. Her previous music video -- which features things like zombies-gone-goth, selfie sticks and plenty of emojis, just to name a few -- for the song "Famous" is a totally surrealistic approach to poking fun at Internet culture.
