Charli XCX dons a mustache and directs her own music video for new track ‘Boys.’ For the song’s clip, she enlisted the help of some of the music and entertainment industry’s hottest names, including Brenden Urie, Charlie Puth, Diplo, G Eazy, Joe Jonas, and The Vamps along with names like Cameron Dallas, Connor Franta, and Tom Daley. It’s not surprising that Charli XCX would be the one to make a video where men are the one being ogled, nor is it surprising that she’d take the reigns and direct it herself. The better to stare at these boys, Charli?
The track itself is a light affair, pure pop over a simple beat. Charli shines with her infectious choruses, and ‘Boys’ is no exception. Charli’s love for different boys shows through on the verses as she chooses to ignore her girlfriends, instead thinking and dreaming about boys. For anyone else in the same boat, this video is likely to be on repeat.
