Charli XCX (real name Charlotte Aitchison) has returned with a new single dubbed ‘Boys’, and a steamy self-directed music video featuring 60 all-star dudes, including Australia’s very own Flume and Vance Joy.
“’Boys’ is my favourite music video I’ve ever made,” Charli says.
“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.”
‘Boys’ — the second single from Charli’s upcoming third album, which is set for release next year — sees her team up with songwriters Jerker Hansson (Zara Larsson, Terror Jnr) and Cass Lowe (Snakehips, Rudimental).
Meanwhile, the video flips gender stereotypes with some huge guest appearances from the likes of Mark Ronson, Diplo, Panic! At The Disco’s Brendon Urie, Mac DeMarco and Bring Me The Horizon’s Oliver Sykes.

Charli XCX will head to Australia later this year, to support Sia on her ‘Nostalgic For The Present Tour’.
