  • Image Source: Getty / Neil Mockford It's been less than a week since Jesy Nelson released her first solo single, a collaboration called "Boyz" featuring Nicki Minaj and Diddy.
  • The single samples Diddy's classic "Bad Boys For Life" and features a cameo of the singer in the video.
  • What it also does is perpetuate negative stereotypes of Black men as "bad boys" and continue a dangerous narrative that needs to be left in the past.
  • Along with that, Nelson's been accused of "blackfishing" by changing her appearance to appear more racially ambiguous.
  • The song and its accompanying video were both met with backlash from fans, critics, and viewers.
