Drip Drop

Euromedia and Luxen Group of Companies on behalf of İTV received many remix offers for "Drip Drop". Taking a selective attitude, they approached DJs Maverick and Alex Guerrero for the assignment.[2] Their remixes went in rotation on various European radio stations.[2] Željko Joksimović was asked to make a Balkan version of the song.

Music videoEdit

The shooting personnel included the video director Rupert Wainwright, choreographer Charles Lawrence and stylist Tanya Gill. All were invited to Ukraine on behalf of İTV by the Euromedia and Luxen Group of Companies.[4] The shooting took place in Kiev on the weekend of April 16 and lasted 37 hours with Safura being accompanied by Ukrainian dancers.[4] The music video was presented on April 29, 2010.[5] In April 2010 BIP Records released "Drip Drop" as a digital single in Belgium and the local radio channel MNM added the song to its playlist.

The video is focused on irresistible love. According to Knight, it features "the story of the girl that wants to be in love, but the guy is just not that into her and the choreography showcases that story" and "this comes up to the mix of contemporary and urban styles".[4]

Safura risked drowning during the shoot of the music video.[citation needed]
