The music video for Boyz, which samples P Diddy's Bad Boys For Life, features an appearance from the rapper himself.

When she smashes one of his windows with a golf ball, he shows up at her front door.

"Hey Jesy... Little Mix... whatever y'all calling yourself these days, check it out."

"I live next door," he continues, "The golf balls through the window - it's not gonna work."

"This. This isn't going to fly," the artist says as he holds up the golf ball with the word, 'Boyz,' written on it.

"And Friday nights, that's my night. That's the night that I party. Hands off for Friday nights, okay?"

P Diddy goes on, "So if y'all having a party, y'all can invite me too. Welcome to the neighbourhood."

"Good luck to you in your career," he says before throwing the golf ball into Jesy's hands.

The 30-year-old said, "It's so funny, everyone always says you write the best songs when you go through a breakup and you really do."

"So yeah, I had a lot of sessions where I cried my eyes out in the studio."

"But it was like therapy, it was amazing."

Sarina asked Jesy what it is about music that she loves so much.

She admitted, "I honestly just couldn't live without music. Music for me is the biggest form of therapy."

"The fact that I can be in the worst mood ever, and if you put on a song that I love, it can completely take me out of that."
