Ms Cosmo Throws A Ladies-Only Party In The Video For 'Ay Baby'

Watch Ms Cosmo's latest music video.

For "Ay Baby," her latest video single, South African hip-hop DJ Ms Cosmo enlists three of the most charismatic South African rappers.


Rouge, Moozlie and Sho Madjozi each take turns to showcase impressive verses littered with their personalities throughout.

The song's hook is an appropriation of Hurricane Chris' 2007 crunk hit single "A Bay Bay." Ms Cosmo and her girls give the hook a trap interpretation, and the result is a potent club banger that should only grow in popularity with the release of the visuals.

The music video only features women, by way of the dancers and the rappers, as well the DJ. How awesome is that?
