Rye Rye is out with highlights to her appearance at the 2012 Winter Music Conference in Miami, Florida. The rapper talked about her new single ‘Boom Boom’ and its video. “It’s high energy, it’s very pop, but it’s like me bringing my flavor to that pop beat,” Rye Rye said about the Vengaboys reworked track. “The first thing that you really think of [with the video] is probably a videogame. I battle a dragon. I battle myself. Different levels of the video, it looks like an action game, but in the end, of course I end up winning.” Watch the clip via YouTube below.
Rye Rye is out with the music video to her new single ‘Boom Boom’, a remake of the Vengaboys 1999 hit ‘Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom’. The song is featured on the American rapper’s debut album ‘Go! Pop!

In a touching moment, director Tim Nackashi shares how much he loved working with both artists and that the shoot may have been one of the best days of his life.
“It’s basically about talking sh** about a guy and finding out he was cheating and trying to play,” Rye Rye explained about the song. “I’m not boo-hooing about it. I’m moving on.”
As for her decision to work with a Robyn track, Rye Rye said, “I love Robyn because she makes great music and she actually has a voice, an amazing voice, and it’s her own style because she incorporates it with dance music as well and makes you move. It’s so like emotional sometimes.”
