WATCH: Charli XCX and Rita Ora “Doing It” Music Video!
Charli XCX and Rita Ora have given the world their “Doing It” music video. The song, from XCX’s album Sucker, serves as the soundtrack for some adventures including a police chase, male strippers, mechanical bulls, and lots of dancing. Watch the video below.
“I wanted it to be like this badass Barbie Thelma and Louise-esque video,” Charli XCX told Buzzfeed. “So we robbed a store with toy guns, rode a bucking bronco and nearly crashed a pink pick-up truck through the desert.” Indeed. It looks like it was fun.
That said, in a different recent interview, XCX revealed that she and Ora almost met a grisly end while shooting the video. “I nearly killed both of us on the set by crashing this Barbie truck into the middle of the desert,” the singer told Metro. ‘There were no air bags. It was this old truck. It was a death-trap! But we made it out alive and the video is so great and is dropping this week.”
We’re glad they survived. Charli XCX’s massively popular collaboration with Iggy Azalea, “Fancy,” has been nominated for honors at next month’s Grammy Awards. Meanwhile, Ora is set to appear in the highly anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey movie.
