"The Other Boys" is a song performed by Australian twin sisters Nervo featuring Kylie Minogue, Jake Shears and Nile Rodgers. It’s included on their debut studio album, Collateral. The remix single was released on 23 October 2015.
Miriam Nervo said of the collaboration, "These guys [Kylie Minogue and Jake Shears] are such strong artists that they put their creative stamp on everything so I think it was a real creative thing, very natural, that just worked really well." adding “I love Niall's guitar bit! It's amazing, it just brought it to a whole new level, it was the icing on the cake.”
Mike Wass of Idolator said "Nervo’s production looks to the past for inspiration, but is definitely rooted in the here and now, while Kylie and Jake trade vocal blows on the soaring, gender-blind chorus." He later added, "The Other Boys" is an "irresistible, disco-tinged floor-filler".
Justin Harp from Digital Spy said "The floor-filler combines electro-pop with disco beats in a way that seems tailor-made for Minogue and Shears to duet."
The music video was filmed in August 2015 in London's Brick Lane. Kylie posted photos of the video shoot on her Instagram account on 27 August. In it she is wearing a vintage Comme des Garçons dress and Casadei boots. On 16 October, Nervo said on their Facebook page that they "Can't wait to show you guys the video".
The music video premiered on 28 October, via Ultra Music's YouTube page.
On June 30 2017, a "UK Edit" of the song was released, which was drastically different from the 2015 version; the song focuses more on Kylie's parts and is more house-oriented, featuring electric guitars and pianos.
