From hoes in different area codes to party girls, it seems Ludacris has a type. She might be topless or in a thong, but she is definitely in heels: she’s a party girl.

For “Party Girls,” Luda goes deep (so deep) into that party world by showing us the inside of the club when no one is around. Does EDM make a noise if the beat never drops? That seems to be (at least the decor aesthetic) Ludacris wants to explore in this video.

True to form, director Hype Williams makes the kind of video he knows best: the kind where the dudes are fully dressed and the women are… not. But in a radical step forward, the women in this video are often not disconnected body parts flaunted at the camera. We actually get to see their faces as they writhe approximately 80 percent of the time. A big kudos to them all for being able to knock this one out without breaking character.

Williams best video trick on display here is the quick edit that matches the song’s beat — those flashes of another scene to match when they kick in on the track keep things feeling like you’re always moving, always seeing something new, even when it’s just the same old thong.

Watch the extra, extra NSFW video below and remember: this club banger track has 12 different songwriter credits. That’s how many people it took.
