The summer of 2018 has been a hot one and it seems Ciara has turned the heat up yet again. Since early July, CiCi has heated up the charts with her hyper-fast hit single “Level Up,” which has caused a social media dance challenge frenzy much like Drake’s “In My Feelings.”

Appearing on screen in a flowing, black-and-white dress worn over hot pants and topped off with a tiered choker and stylish sneakers, her crew dances behind her in traditional Ankara printed fabrics styled in pleated skirts, button-down tops, and a long dress. The designs by Rich Mnisi (a Johannesburg ready-to-wear brand), were colorful and paired perfectly with the street style theme and setting of the video. The video was co-styled by multimedia visual artist and mega talent Trevor Stuurman.
