Interview: Boys World

Client: Billboard


“I’m really glad we’re not a bubblegum pop, squeaky-clean group,” says Boys World’s Makhyli Simpson on a Zoom call with Billboard, “because I think that would be harder for us.” Her group mates — Queenie Mae Villaluz, Elana Caceres, Olivia Ruby and Lillian Kay — all nod in agreement.

Thus far, the ascent of Boys World has been anything but difficult. From the moment the quintet dropped their debut single, “Girlfriends,” last October — with its delicious truth bomb, ”Girls stan girlfriends over boyfriends” — they’ve been dubbed the “Gen Z Spice Girls.” Songwriters behind hits for BTS, Katy Perry, Selena Gomez and Dua Lipa have gotten on board; so have over 1.1 million followers on TikTok and 100,000 Instagram followers.
