Before the “Bo$$” video premieres on Tuesday, MTV News was lucky enough to go behind the scenes on the set with Camila, Normani, Dinah, Ally and Lauren to get a sneak peek at what’s in store.
“The concept for the video, it’s very empowering and kind of defines ‘Bo$$’ in different settings,” Ally said. “We have four or five different set-ups and each kind of represents us in our own element, us kind of owning that certain situation.”
Camila continued, “There is one runway scene, there is an arm wrestling scene where we kind of act out a little bit, there’s a performance one, there’s a very fashion forward one.”
Dressed in an all-black ensembles for the video, which was shot in Los Angeles last month, the girls bring their empowering song to life, as they were clearly on some “Michelle Obama ish,” proudly displaying their sexy, confident attitude in each scene. Well, except for maybe one.
“I think the one that was the most fun to shoot, which was actually the one that I was most nervous about was the arm wrestling scene because ugh boys,” Camila said before Dinah added, “It was so hard because they are all so cute.”
Fans will definitely be seeing a “dramatic difference” in the girls since the last video in their style, music and lyrics, but Ally promises it’s nothing “too drastic.”
“As we grow, our music grows, and it’s very natural and organic and it’s nothing that’s forced, which is really really important to us because we don’t want to just do something drastic just to do it,” Ally said. “We want to do something that’s more real to us.”
