THE OTHER BOYS
Stop everything… Kylie, Jake Shears and Nile Rodgers’ new video is incredible! Jake Shears and Kylie Minogue have collaborated on the video for disco track The Other Boys – could this be the campest thing ever?
The song, which is taken from producer duo Nervo’s debut album, also features a sickening guitar solo from Nile Rodgers, of disco band Chic.
In the clip, the two gay icons party around an abandoned building with a host of fabulously stylish friends, and the they look like they’re having a blast. Which leaves us wondering, where was our invite?
The star-studded new video for NERVO’s “The Other Boys” was something of a happy accident. The song, taken from the Australian DJ-producer duo’s July debut album Collateral, was originally just a collaboration with Scissor Sisters singer Jake Shears. But Shears couldn’t contain his excitement about the sizzling dance track while he was hanging out with pal Kylie Minogue, who gave it a listen and promptly asked NERVO if she could get in on the action. (And when Kylie Minogue wants to be a guest on your album, you don’t say no.)
Even Chic guitarist and disco icon Nile Rodgers, who later topped off “The Other Boys” with a lively guitar solo and appears in the new video, was a little overwhelmed by the collaboration. “Kylie Minogue, Jake Shears, and me with NERVO? Really? This was a delightful disco-dream come true.”
Filming the dance-heavy video, which premieres today, was just as festive an occasion. “It was just one of those shoots where everybody was happy to be there, and we had great time getting to hang and dance around,” Shears says. “It was Aussie overload in the best way with those three girls. I could write an album out of all the funny stuff that falls out of their mouths.” Sounds like a pretty awesome kiki.
