Tyga "Ayy Macarena" music video

Tyga is closing 2019 with another banger. The rapper just gave his slapper “Ayy Macarena” a larger-than-life video.

For his colorful self-directed visuals, Tyga got Los Del Rio’s stamp of approval. The video opens with the originators of the ’90s hit on the mic at a jazz club before cutting to Tyga dressed as Jim Carrey’s character from The Mask.  Dressed in the iconic yellow zoot suit and wide-brimmed hat, he swoons over his real-life Macarena from a booth before magically joining her on stage.

The video cuts to Tyga on the streets reinventing the recognizable Macarena dance alongside two dancers. T-Raww also plays a mustachioed gangster in the cinematic clip. Dressed in a pinstriped suit while smoking a giant cigar, he engages in a shootout alongside Los del Río. Watch the insane visuals below.

Since dropping last month, “Ayy Macarena” has garnered over 35 million streams and birthed the viral #MacarenaChallenge. Tyga is gearing up for a new album in 2020, his first as part of a multi-million dollar deal with Columbia Records.
