Charli XCX has debuted the official music video for “Boys” and it features a star-studded male cast. The pop starlet, who self-directed the music video along with Sarah McColgan (Kendrick Lamar), went all out for her newest project. Guest appearances include Flume, Joe Jonas, Diplo, G-Eazy, The Fat Jew, and more.
The singer, songwriter, video director, documentary maker, radio host and record label boss pushes the boundaries of gender stereotypes in the whimsical and delightful video for the forthcoming single, which will arrive on her third studio album in 2018.
“’Boys’ is my favorite music video I’ve ever made,” said Charli. “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 XCX has won two SESAC Songwriter of the Year Awards, two Billboard Awards, two NME Awards, and one YouTube Music Award, alongside an array of various nominations (including Grammys, BRIT Awards and MTV VMAs). She has written for Blondie, Rihanna, Gwen Stefani, Selena Gomez, and Britney Spears.
Charli XCX will also be supporting Halsey on her US tour this fall, alongside PARTYNEXTDOOR.
