The live video features singer/dancers Su-Metal, Moametal and Yuimetal performing within a triangular enclosure that's suspended above an arena-size crowd. Clad in glittery robes, the girls sing the verses of the midtempo track in English and the choruses in Japanese. The video was filmed on Dec. 13, 2015 at Yokohama Arena in Japan on the final date of the Baby Metal World Tour.

"The three of us were together so it wasn't scary," Su-Metal tells Billboard. "We saw the audience singing along with us and that was amazing."

Watch the video below.

Through the world tour we realized that Babymetal is not just about the three of us, but about the Kami Band, our staff and the fans all together,” Su-Metal says. “With this team we'd like to perform our one-of-a-kind music that we produce and bring the world together.
