Doja Cat has announced a new official music video for 'Streets', dropping this week. More than a year after its release, 'Streets' made its Hot 100 debut in January 2021 after it became the soundtrack to TikTok’s massively popular 'Silhouette Challenge'. The Silhouette Challenge videos usually begin with users dressed in casual clothes and posing in a doorway to the sound of Paul Anka’s 'Put Your Head on My Shoulder'. The track then changes to 'Streets', as users strike a sexy pose in red mood lighting, wearing tight clothing to accentuate their silhouetted figures.

Release date

The 'Streets' music video is releasing on March 9, 2021.

Concept

'Streets' is a melancholy R&B ballad written by Doja Cat, David Sprecher, Lydia Asrat, Theron Otis Feemster, Christopher Jefferies and Demarie Sheki. The song is produced by brother production duo Blaq Tuxedo, who are also credited as co-writers. The track gained its namesake from the song which is sampled throughout the track, 'Streets Is Callin', by B2K from their soundtrack album 'You Got Served' (2003).

It was released to US pop radio in February 2021 as the seventh single from 'Hot Pink' after it became a sleeper hit the previous month. While 'Streets' has skyrocketed in popularity in just a few weeks, executive vice president of A&R for RCA Records Tunji Balogun never expected it to become a hit. According to Billboard, he said, "We all love that song, but we never really focused on it from the beginning of the project." 'Streets' is now the rapper's second top 20 hit as a lead artist.
