Charli XCX – Boys
Charli XCX has shared ‘Boys’, a brand new single with a mind-boggling video crammed with guest stars.
The three-minute clip sees cameos from the likes of Riz Ahmed, Diplo, Joe Jonas, Mark Ronson, Stormzy, Mac DeMarco, Wiz Khalifa, Ty Dolla $ign, Charlie Puth, Kaytranada, Chromeo, Jack Antonoff, G-Eazy and Will.I.Am.
“The whole idea behind the video was to avert the male gaze,” said Charli. “I made a conscious decision to not be in the video and to have all the guys doing the sexy things that girls are normally doing — which I think they enjoyed.”
XCX has been collaborating lots lately, joining forces with Mura Masa, Whethan, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu and producer Yasutaka Nakata, and Blondie in recent months, plus recruiting heaps of major names for her Number 1 Angel mixtape.
