Charli XCX dropped an instant summer smash on Wednesday with her “Boys” music video, which features a whole host of the songstress’ most swoonworthy musical crushes.
Directed by Charli herself and Sarah McColgan, the video is a pastel-pink dreamscape of boys of all flavors showing off for the camera, from Joe Jonas eating pancakes to Khalid cuddling neon-painted puppies to a soaking-wet Tom Daley, and back again.
“They’re doing all the sexy things that girls usually do in music videos,” Charli recently told BBC Radio. “I just kind of want to flip the male gaze on its head.”
