Azalea recently told New Zealand radio about her preparation for the video during which she adjusted her diet, did yoga and took twerking classes, The Sun reports. “I did a lot of rehearsals actually, and man, I lost 15 pounds in a week dancing to that song!” the rapper said.

“It’s a lot–I went on a meal plan before the video because I knew I would have to be dancing fairly skimpily dressed,” Azalea admitted. “I did take classes. I do have someone who is very, very good at twerking and she helped me. I never realized how flexible you have to be to do that stuff.”

The 26-year-old rapper burst onto the music scene in 2014 with her hit song “Fancy” and later went on to tour with Beyoncé. She’s been out of the spotlight for a while now, but is clearly looking to get things back on track with “Mo Bounce.”
