15 Boys Who Should Also Be Featured in the Singapore Version of Charli XCX's Boys

By  September 25, 2017

When Charli XCX's music video for Boys was released back in July, it got many heads turning with the staggering number of famous personalities featured in it, from British Olympian Tom Daley to Wiz Khalifa to k-pop idol Jay Park.

With the hype surrounding the video, it wasn't long until someone finally made a Singapore version!

Check it out below:

 

No disrepect to those who were featured in the video - they're all great and 100% deserve to be featured. However, we can't help but agree with the amount of dislikes on the video for one reason: it missed out far too many boys! Blasphemy!

Instead of featuring Nathan Hartono twice, here's 15 local boys/bands who we strongly believe should have been included in the Singapore version of Boys.

Not only are they incredibily good-looking, but also so musically-talented that they got us busy thinkin' and dreamin' bout them.

 

1. Charlie Lim

First on our list is none other than singer-songwriter Charlie Lim. As one of Singapore's most prominent local act of today, he would've been our first nominee to be included in the video.

 

2. Jack & Rai

Duo Jack and Rai may be veterans in Singapore's music scene, but they are just as qualified to be in the video, in our opinion.

 

3. T-rex

This all-instrumental band is just as good as bands with vocalists, and sometimes even better.

 

4. JJ Lin

How could the video miss out Singapore's biggest mando-pop star??

 

5. Taufik Batisah

Not even our very first Singapore Idol??? Really???

 

6. Electrico

Nor the band who has been around for over 20 years and is often credited for the revival of local indie music???

 

7. The Façade

We're guessing that the creator of Singapore's version of Boys probably haven't seen any of this band's music videos...

 

8. Caracal

Post-hardcore band Caracal is one of Singapore's suavest bands so it boggles our minds how they weren't in the video.

 

9. Ken Loh

If you're wondering why Ken looks so familiar, it's probably because you've seen him performing along the streets of Orchard. We think buskers, especially one as prominent as Ken, should also be included too!

 

10. THIEVVES

The electronic artiste is not only super stylish, but is also the brains behind the likes of Disco Hue and Aquila Vasica. So of course THIEVVES is all good in our books!

 

11. Shaun Jansen

The Final One finalist is the epitome of Boys.

 

12. CampFire

We reckon hip-hop duo CampFire would add some spice to the mix.

 

13. M1LDL1FE

With their whole boys-next-door image combined with indie-pop tunes, the boys of M1LDL1FE would be perfect for the video!

 

14. Stopgap

Jumpsuits and covers of Sun Ho's China Wine are sure-fire ways to win our hearts!

 

15. Steven Lim

Last but not least, how could they miss out Singapore Idol alumni, Steven Lim Kor Kor???

 

Of course, this list is non-exhaustive. So please tell us if we missed anyone out!
