Catwoman meets Spiderman (or in this case, Spiderwoman) in Doja cat’s latest video for her viral hit Streets. Released on her second studio album Hot Pink, this track has become yet another glad victim of TikTok’s viral prowess as the main song for the hit #sillhouettechallenge (along with Put Your Head On My Shoulders by Paul Anka) that Doja Cat herself gave in and participated in, along with other A-List celebrities such as Cardi B and Chloe Bailey (of the Chloe x Halle duo)
The video stars Kofi Siriboe who is best known for his roles on Queen Sugar, and the popular movie Girls Trip. The performer is the subject of Kofi’s imagination as Kofi is a taxi driver who becomes entranced by Doja, who is in the neighboring window display as a mannequin, and looking at her subject calmly, but sensually. As Put Your Head... starts playing the video then becomes a silhouette challenge in itself, and slowly but surely morphs into the original song’s video. The video is directed by Christian Breslauer, who has directed for other artists such as Jason Derulo and the hit single The Box by rapper Roddy Ricch.
Streets provided Doja Cat with her second top 10 Billboard Hot R&B/ Hip-Hop Songs at one notch below its peak position, which was no. 8 achieved in May of 2020. Watch the video for Streets below!
