Following three new songs earlier this year, Natasha Bedingfield is back with a new single, “Hey Boy,” part of a new compilation, Served Like A Girl. Set against a 1960s beat, the song is feisty and fun. Natasha asks a boy what he’ll be when he grows up, offering plenty of masculine tropes he could follow. But as lighthearted as it sounds, there’s also a message to be careful what you strive to become. Not all men are worthy role models.
This message comes to life in the “Hey Boy” music video. Natasha explicitly shades bad guys like Harvey Weinstein and Donald Trump, flipping off the camera to boot. It’s a shocking new side to Natasha, and one we’d like to see more of. It turns out the sweet girl next door has some fire in her.
Perhaps coincidentally, “Hey Boy” also serves as the gender reveal for Natasha’s baby! Last month, she announced that she and her husband Matt are expecting their first child. It looks like Natasha will welcome a baby boy early next year.

“Hey Boy” is the fourth single we’ve heard from Natasha Bedingfield this year. It follows “Let Go,” “Love Looks Like,” and “More Of Me,” and hopefully indicates more music to come. Her last album, Strip Me, came out seven years ago, and although Natasha has spent the better part of the past five years writing and recording, a followup record still eludes us. With any luck, 2018 will be the lucky year. “Hey Boy” certainly offers the charm needed to bring Natasha back into the spotlight.
You can stream “Hey Boy” on Spotify now, or get the song on iTunes along with the rest of its compilation album, Served Like A Girl. Offering tracks from artists like Gwen Stefani and P!nk, the set serves as a soundtrack to the new documentary of the same name, which highlights female veterans. The Served Like A Girl documentary will be available on DVD on November 7th. You can learn more about Served Like A Girl at their official site.
