It's hard to know where to begin describing all the things we love about Jamaican artist and Popcaan collaborator Chi Ching Ching's "Watchi Wiya" video. There's finally a bashment-friendly version of the cooking dance, which we can only explain as a simulated mild electrocution from the wire in question. There's the white-hot summer style across, like, a hundred dancers: seamlessly fit denim, bra cups peaking from overall straps, every rip and zipper and accessory placed to a tee. But our favorite bit might be HardFiDealWid's intro—Wehdis? Wehdis? Wehdis? Wehdis???—the spark that gets the tune sizzling before Chi Ching sends it up. Brand new sound!
