I’m sure you’ve watched the music video for Charli XCX’s new hit single Boys countless times over the course of the weekend. Maybe you just wanted to ogle all the cute and sexy celebrity “boys” in the video again, or maybe you wanted to dance to the bubbly effervescent pop song. It’s become one of the most talked about songs and videos of the year in but a few swift days, and deservedly so, for the grand feat it’s accomplished in turning stereotypes around. Just a few hours after the song burst upon the world, one of our Moving Castle faves, boundary pushing, genre bending LGBTQ+ pop music troubadour SAKIMA offered up his own unique version of the song. What he accomplishes with his rendition is sonic perfection. There’s no resisting this breezy tropical, airy crisp electronic, dancehall, and pop Boys. SAKIMA’s cover is a successful extension of what Charli XCX ’s inventive original, and its an absolute aural delight, particularly with SAKIMA’s glossy slick vocals on display.
