The Young Dancers in Netsky & Aloe Blacc's 'Snitch' Video Will Blow Your Mind: Exclusive

Back in the early days of hip-hop in New York City, kids found a way to get out their aggression without bruising anything more than some knees and few egos. Dance battles were a creative, non-violent way to settle scores, and that spirit is captured in Netsky and Aloe Blacc's "Snitch" music video which puts brilliant young dancers under the spotlight.

“These kids just raised the bar," Netsky tells Billboard Dance. "I think this is probably the first song I’ve put out that was really screaming for a choreographed dance video. This is exactly what I imagined the video for this track should be.”

In "Snitch," one student suspects she's been sold down river by another. Tensions rise as kids share glaring whispers, and as soon as the teacher leaves the room, the pair have it out with impressive moves. All the young dancers are captivating, and their energy is infectious. The video was produced by the DanceOn, the dance company's first for Casablanca / Republic Records.

DanceOn CEO Amanda Taylor says, "the creative decision to skew young and utilize an everyday space like a classroom allowed DanceOn to showcase these young talents - who are sure to be the next generation of big-name dancers - in a way that both compliments the track’s incredible production and creates an engaging narrative for audiences to connect with the track.”

Netsky and Blacc's fresh collaboration is made all the iller with this inspiring clip. Watch the official video for "Snitch" before its wide release below, exclusively on Billboard Dance, and see what moves it inspires in you.
