Charli XCX diplo

Few songs can top Spice Girls’ 1996 hit “Wannabe,” but Charli XCX, Diplo, and Herve Pagez have combined forces to reconceptualize it. The result is “Spicy,” a futuristic version of the playful anthem that flirts with dancehall. Even if you don’t add it to your summer playlist, you’ll probably hear it while you’re out at the club.

The Reed + Rader-directed visual is extremely bizarre and follows the trio as they embark on some sort of intergalactic sea adventure with a bunch of flying cyborg dolphin creatures while bathed in neon lighting. Either the heat has gone to all of our heads or this is really happening on the screen…

Anyway, watch all the fun go down in the video above.
