Meet Boys World, the Infectious Girl Group Ready to Take the World By Storm
LA-based girl group Boys World advocates for the girls that love themselves, hate their exes, and rock low-rise jeans like it’s their religion.
The five-piece band, consisting of Elana Caceres, Lillian Kay, Queenie Mae Villaluz, Makhyli Simpson, and Olivia Ruby, has ridden a pretty steady momentum since their 2020 debut, "please hold," only signaling to take up more speed. They’ve managed to evolve out of their TikTok boom, which can be thanks to how much detail and intention is poured into every single and accompanying music video they’ve released thus far. From their outfits to their set design, nothing has fallen short of an art piece.
While they’ve explored different pockets of pop, the common thread through their music is self-empowerment, singing breakup songs disguised as love songs, always returning back to sacred friendship. Their very first single “Girlfriends” is an anthem for anyone who knows that as lovers come and go, but the home you’ve built with your besties is impenetrable. They make the kind of music you’d want your little sister or best friend to listen to, while keeping a couple of songs in your own medicine cabinet as well. After all, the “Boys” in their name actually does stand for “Best of Your Self.”
Beyond their mesmerizing harmonies, which is the true mark of a promising girl group, their ability to dance and perform up levels them into the realm of stardom potential. Making incredibly intricate choreography seem like a two-step, it’s hard to look away when they set their bodies ablaze, which is indicative not only of natural talent but ultimately, consistency and precision. They’re hungry to be the best and have invested the necessary grit to achieve that.
Their latest single, “Mantrum,” is a clever take on dealing with a boy’s underdeveloped emotions, standing as a song that’s not only universally relatable but also incredibly fun and lighthearted. You can hear how much fun they’re having, and it’s infectious.
Boys World is not only culturally diverse but stylistically and expressively as well. They bring something not as easily found in Western girl groups, representing themselves beyond just their hair and vocal register. Each individual member has a sauce to them, a unique aroma that deepens the palette of the Boys World fragrance. There isn’t one member that outshines another—they take turns at the podium, rooting for each other during every solo.
But what’s most exciting about Boys World is that their inception was simply by catching the attention of KYN Entertainment scouts via Instagram. They put themselves out there and the world saw fit that they bloom, which is proof that in search of success, you must believe in yourself before anyone else can.
