Pop entrepreneur Charli XCX unveiled a new single “Boys” this afternoon alongside an accompanying, self-directed/commissioned music video with Sarah McColgan (Kendrick Lamar) – WATCH HERE – which pushes the boundaries of her artistry, playfully challenging gender stereotypes featuring an all-star male cast – including guest appearances from StormzyMark RonsonDiploJoe JonasBrendon Uriewill.i.amMac DeMarcoRiz Ahmed — see full list below!
 
“Boys” marks the next track from the multi award-winning talent; singer; songwriter; video director; documentary maker; radio host; record label boss’ forthcoming third studio album. The single made with Jerker Hansson (Zara Larsson, Terror Jr) and Cass Lowe (Snakehips, Rudimental) follows Charli XCX’s genre-defying Number 1 Angel EP which boasted hook-fueled collaborations with some of her favorite artists (including RAYE and MØ), which also follows her recent single, “After The Afterparty” ft. Lil Yachty, celebrating over 43 million global streams. Charlotte Aitchison has won 2 x SESAC Songwriter of the Year Awards, 2 x Billboard Awards, 2 x NME Awards, and 1 x YouTube Music Award alongside an array of nominations at the Grammy’s, BRIT Awards and MTV VMA’s. Not to mention the studio time she’s commanded with the likes of Blondie [Charli has writing credits on their latest LP ‘Pollinator’], Rihanna, Gwen Stefani, Selena Gomez, Britney Spears and many more. Charli XCX will be supporting Halsey on her US tour this fall. Stay tuned for further announcements.
 
“‘Boys’ is my favorite music video I’ve ever made. 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.” – Charli XCX
