When you have a song titled “Boys,” it’s only fitting the accompanying visual be jam-packed with boys. That’s exactly what Charli XCX did for her new offering. On behalf of everyone, thanks for being so literal 🙂
“Boys” is a breezy electro-pop number off her forthcoming third studio album. The 24-year-old English musician sings about how daydreaming about boys is affecting her life. “I’m sorry that I missed your party,” she laments. “I wish I had a better excuse, like ‘I had to trash a hotel lobby’/ But I was busy thinking ’bout boys/ I was busy dreaming ’bout boys.”
“‘Boys’ is my favorite music video I’ve ever made. I just wanna say a big thanks to all the boys involved, for totally embracing and understanding my vision and being excited by the concept. p.s. no boys were harmed in the making of this video,” Charli stated.
Directed by Charli XCX and Sarah McColgan, the music video is filled with male celebrity cameos. Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig, Mac DeMarco, Diplo, Rostam, Wiz Khalifa, D.R.A.M., Kaytranada, Stormzy, Riz Ahmed and Swet Shop Boys, Jack Antonoff, Mark Ronson, Flume, Ty Dolla $ign, Joey Bada$$, Chromeo, Charlie Puth, Khalid, Joe Jonas and a shirtless Cameron Dallas are some of the boys who strut their stuff for the camera.
