Charli XCX enlists Flume, Diplo and more for star-studded Boys video

The Australia-bound pop Queen shares the second track from her forthcoming new album with a video loaded with special guests.

In the lead up to her forthcoming third album (due out sometime in 2018), UK pop Queen Charli XCX has been selfless with musical treats. Last year, she linked up with SOPHIE for the highly-energetic Vroom Vroom EP, before re-collaborating with the experimental producer and his PC Music pals in this year's Number 1 Angel and on top of all this, found time to release After The Afterparty - the first single from her upcoming new album. Today she returns with the second track from the said album, taking on a minimalist, glitchy pop sound for Boys. In comparison to the over-produced After The AfterpartyBoys is far more stripped back and refined, keeping things simplistic by pairing her well-known vocals with a clanging, laid-back production which glitches with video game samples and crisp percussion.

The video arrives with a star-studded video clip featuring nearly every single male in the music industry, whether that be producers such as Diplo, Flume and Kaytranada or others including Joe Jonas, Stormzy, Mac DeMarco, Mark Ronson and a whole horde more. Interestingly enough, the video clip doesn't actually feature Charli (bar a quick cameo where she has a moustache drawn on her face), with the Australia-bound singer instead choosing to spend the time behind the camera to self-direct the video. Check it out below, and be sure to catch her supporting Sia on her east-coast dates later this year (with MØ and Australia's own Amy Shark).
