Their collaboration is bound to top the charts when it's released on February 9th. But Charli XCX and Rita Ora were involved in a scary car accident when the pink Barbie truck that Charli was driving for the video 'Doing It' crashed in the middle of the desert. She's since said, " There were no air bags. It was this old truck. It was a death trap!
The official video, which was shot in the Los Angeles dessert – think Thelma & Louise meets Natural Born Killers – has been directed by Adam Powell (The 1975) and produced by Nina Dluhy-Miller. Charli commented – “Rita is just someone who I get. She has so much to give as an artist and a person, she knows how to be a real and have a wild time. ‘Doing It’ was something I played to her ages ago and she loved it, so I thought I should definitely get her on it. We shot the video in the middle of the Californian desert - it was amazing. I wanted it to be like this badass Barbie Thelma and Louise esque video, so we robbed a store with toy guns, rode a bucking bronco and nearly crashed a pink pick-up truck through the desert. Angels, I can't wait for you to see this video and finally hear Sucker in full.”
Here's the finished video. See - not a scratch in sight.
