Gigi Hadid has been the star of a music video before, so it was only a matter of time before she got a taste of making one herself. She worked with boyfriend Joe Jonas and his band DNCE for their Cake by The Ocean music video and it's full-on sun, surf and beach bods.

The video also stars the biggest slice of cake you have ever seen because it's the International Cake Fight. If we wanted to nitpick, we'd say it's a waste of cake, but Gigi and co-director Black Coffee did the song justice – watch out, we hear a summer anthem in the making.

DNCE also consists of guitarist JinJoo Lee, bassist Cole Whittle and drummer Jack Lawless, who formed the band with Joe just this year. Cake by The Ocean is their debut single.

"We were thinking of ideas and turned around and said, 'Why not put a massive cake on the beach?'" Joe told Entertainment Weekly. "It came together really quickly and were really excited about it because it's just something that I think is wacky and fun."

He also sang praises for Gigi. "She's always had a high creative eye, so she came up with concept and we rolled with it," Joe added. "She was a good boss."
