As if performing in front of adoring crowds wasn’t enough, pop powerhouse Charli XCX can now add music director to her list of artistic achievements.
To mark the release of her brand new single, Boys, Charli has teamed with Sarah McColgan (of Kendrick Lamar fame) in putting together the accompanying clip, one which playfully challenges gender stereotypes in the media.
Featuring an all-star male cast, the video sees guest appearances from Cameron Dallas (pictured above), Mark Ronson, Diplo, Joe Jonas, Ezra Koenig of Vampire Weekend, Brendon Urie, will.i.am, Mac DeMarco, Ty Dolla $ign, Riz Ahmed, Wiz Khalifa and more. Phew!
On top of all this, Charli’s Australian fans will get the chance to see her perform live when she visits our shores later this year, joined by the likes of Sia, MØ and Amy Shark, no less.
And for those lucky enough to be in Bali this August, Charli will be performing as part of the Sunny Side Up Tropical Festival. With a lineup that also boasts brilliant acts Phoenix, Big Sean and Jonas Blue, music fans are going to be in heaven.
With so much happening in the world of Charli XCX, now is the time to jump on board and strap yourself in for the ride. Chris Prindiville
