Last week, Charli XCX dropped a culture bomb that the summer’s desperately been craving with her blippy, bouncy, not-even-three-minute single “Boys,” and its accompanying video.
Crammed with famous young men sexing it up, stripping it down, and generally being sultry-sexy, the vid features Joe Jonas wearing a milk mustache, Tom Daley taking a sultry shower, and Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig somehow making toothbrushing steamy and dreamy.
Other cameos include Mac DeMarco, Diplo, Cameron Dallas, Rostam,Riz Ahmed and Swet Shop Boys, Jack Antonoff, Mark Ronson, Flume, Wiz Khalifa, D.R.A.M., Kaytranada, Stormzy, Ty Dolla $ign, Joey Bada$$, Chromeo, Charlie Puth, and Khalid. It’s a lot.
