The artists fight for screen time in the collaborative visual.

When reading how many artists are on this track, you might argue that there may be too many names to fit in a music video, but director Henry Scholfield does it flawlessly. Wiley, Stefflon Don, Sean Paul, and Idris Elba—yep, the actor himself—link up for a single that will have your hips winin'. In the visual, Wiley is played by young actor Brooklyn Appiah, who lip syncs his bars.

The focus shifts to a blue-haired Stefflon Don who adds her rhymes while kicking it on the streets of London. Next, Sean Paul joins the mix moving from gambling in an underground club to grabbing food with some friends. Elba's scenes mimic what he does on a regular basis as he works with production on a film set touching up his makeup, setting his wardrobe, and placing himself in front of the camera to make sure it gets his best side.

Scholfield previously spoke about the "Boasty" video saying, “I liked this idea of the artists all competing for lyrical screen-space with them crumpling, folding, or stomping on each other to bring us from one to the next. It had a kinda vibe of bigupmanship and a visual riff on who’s the boasty-iest… to say it was a shoot to remember would be a bit of an understatement. What a killer quartet of awesome artists.”
