Scarlip is apologizing for “twerking” in her recent music video.

The rapper, most known for her hit song “This Is New York”, shocked fans with her sexy dance moves in new single “She’s Hot.” The clip from the video went viral online and the Bronx rapper is explaining why she’s showing a different side of her.

“I know a few days ago you saw me shaking my booty on the internet. I wanna say, I apologize to all y’all and anybody I offended,” she began. “Now, I know everybody’s like, ‘No, we don’t want you doing that…’ I understand that, right?”

“Let me just say one thing, no one is forcing me to do this,” she added. “I come up with these things in my head, these crazy ideas.”

“I want you guys to grow with me,” she admitted. “Don’t put me in a box. I’m always gon’ give y’all that street sh*t, I mean, I’m the best to do it, right? And we all know that…but I want to, like, tap into what’s in me! It’s something in me that just wants to come out!”

The Bronx rapper goes on to say her new single is just in time for the Summer “‘She’s Hot’… it really is just a feel-good, summer vibe. I was just like, ‘I wanna feel good this summer! Let me put some summer music out,’ it’s just a feel-good vibe. It’s nothing crazy, and it’s still street.”
