  • This Twerk anthem has Iggy spitting rhymes about shaking her hips and jiggling as she hooks up with a guy in the club. The Australian rapper penned the song and it was produced by The Invisible Men and Reeva & Black.
  • The song's music video was shot in April 2013 in Mumbai, India and was inspired by '70s Bollywood actress Parveen Babi. Stylist Alejandra Hernandez explained to MTV News. "I was very inspired by Parveen Babi in her films. She was such an Indian bombshell. The costumes in the '60s and '70s were so next level.
    "For the video, we wanted to be traditional and respectful to the culture, so the gold body suit was the closest I could get to my '70s Bollywood dream."

    Izzy is later seen riding an elephant. The Aussie hip hop musician told Rap-Up.com that she imagined putting an elephant in the video, and after some difficulties, she eventually was able to make it happen. "It took us a month to find it and we got it, and it was such a s--t fight," said Iggy. "We just took this elephant and thugged it down the street, and it was insane."
