Watch a South African Street Dance Crew Get Down In Rouge’s ‘Déjà Vu’

Cape Town dance crew Untimitive flexes on Rouge's latest music video.

Congolese-born South African-based rapper Rouge can rap circles around your favorite. She has one of the most solid deliveries this side of the equator. On her latest single “Deja Vu,” she spits her verse with that solid flow over a trap instrumental that might leave fractures on your eardrum.

The song’s video shows very little of the rapper, instead showing a group of street dancers from the crew Untimitive, lead by choreographer Rudi Smit, flexing to a backdrop of graffiti-painted walls. From the mountains looming behind, it looks like the video was shot somewhere in Cape Town.  

Watch the video for “Déjà Vu” above and pre-order Rouge’s upcoming album The New Era Sessions, releasing September 8, here.
