Vancouver pop star Carly Rae Jepsen goes retro in the music video for "Boy Problems," off her third studio album, E·MO·TION . The song was written by iconic singer-songwriter Sia, who also says the opening line to the track. Watch above.
"Boy Problems" is a spunky tune that features a rhythmic bass line, sing-along lyrics, and cheerful beats about the familiar struggle of dealing with a best friend's boy drama. The shadowy music video has a splash of color and lots of glitter. Toronto photographer Petra Collins directed the music video. Carly spoke with Rookie, where she premiered the video, about what it was like working with her:
Out of the blue, Petra reached out to ask if she could make a video for her favorite track from the album: ‘Boy Problems.’ What she didn’t know is that I had been following her online, via Instagram and other outlets, for a while and had become a HUGE fan of her photographs and artwork. I think she has a very gifted eye for a refreshing look at youth and beauty, and the way she plays with color always stands out to me. So the answer was an immediate YES! We met that first day in New York and were giddy with creating something new together and I am so pleased for how the dark and glittery scenes we imagined turned out. I hope you enjoy it!
