Iconic hip-hop producer and entrepreneur P Diddy made a guest appearance in the stunning music video of ‘Boyz’
After a wait of almost a year, the former Little Mix member Jesy Nelson finally dropped her solo debut single called ‘Boyz’. The British crooner was in the news all along after quitting her all-girl squad back in December 2020 citing mental health issues. For her very first solo single, Jesy recruited the Queen of Rap- Nicki Minaj for a guest feature.
Within a few minutes of the song release, Jesy and Minaj grabbed one of the top spots on the trending list. Iconic hip-hop producer and entrepreneur P Diddy made a guest appearance in the stunning music video of ‘Boyz’ which got the Internet talking. Interestingly, Jesy has sampled Diddy’s hit single ‘Bad Boy for Life’ for her latest release.

Jesy had first teased the song in the second week of August on her official Instagram account. The track ‘Boyz’ talks about the British singer calling herself out for being attracted to bad boys. Apart from sampling Diddy’s song and tapping him for a cameo, Jesy also recreated a few portions of Diddy’s music video of ‘Bad Boy for Life’. The brand new Friday release soon entered the coveted Top 10 list of the US iTunes chart.
Speaking of lyrics, Jesy in one of the verses sings, “Ooh, I like them tattoos and them gold teeth/ Tough to make me feel like I’m a baddie/ I like the fire you’re bringing out of me/ Baby, something ’bout him got me weak in the knees.” Nicki Minaj, like always, goes hard on bars as she steps in the second half of the song. “Lucky charms on my anklets, no, not cereal/ Jesy, we got all jelly bi**hes actin’ real messy (Real messy)/ Still a bad bi**h, whether I’m sporty or I’m dressy/ I don’t know why I got the dudes actin’ zesty/ But I only want a bad boy as my bestie.”
In December 2020, Jesy had shared an Instagram post where she revealed how the band had taken a toll on her mental health. “The truth is being in the band has really taken a toll on my mental health. I find the constant pressure of being in a girl group and living up to expectations very hard,” adding that she was quitting the band. Brinkwire Brief News.
