Charli XCX released a new song called “Boys,” and its video delivers on the song title’s promise. It is stuffed with boys. Not just any boys, either—it’s a veritable who’s who of musicians. Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig, Mac DeMarco, Diplo, Rostam, Wiz Khalifa, D.R.A.M., Kaytranada, Stormzy, Elsewhere, Panic at the Disco’s Brendan Urie reclines on a spread of red rose pedals Diplo cuddles with multiple dogs; Jack Antonoff pumps iron; former Vampire Weekend member Rostam Batmanglij gets his head shaved Mark Ronson uses a comb to slick back and tons more appear in the Charli-directed clip.
The clip, which the singer helmed alongside Sarah McColgan, cycles through the artists mugging for the camera in hilarious and often bizarre scenarios. Highlights include Joe Jonas, wearing a bath robe emblazoned with his initials, sitting at a dinner table to five massive stacks of pancakes; Will.i.a.m hanging out in front a disco ball; and Wiz Khalifa throwing around fake money.
