Nathan Sykes speaks out about body confidence!

Former The Wanted singer, Nathan Sykes undoubtedly wowed fans when he got up close and personal with a lady in a hotel room in his latest music video for upcoming single, “Give It Up”, but he has high hopes for what he can show men through this semi-nakedness.

The singer, who released his third solo single yesterday, May 13th, has argued that his new video will inspire body confidence among men. Sykes claims that not all men in the spotlight have the stereotypical Hollywood physique and nobody should be afraid to hide what they do have.

“There’s this fascination with blokes having this really big build and massive muscles to be deemed sexy,” Nathan shared, in a recent interview. The 23 year old continued to say, “Everyone’s got different bodies. If I can go and do this video and not worry too much about how I look on camera. It might encourage some people on Twitter who kind of worry about the way they look.”

“If I can encourage people to have more confidence in themselves, then that’s a really cool thing.” We wholeheartedly agree Nathan!

In response to questions about stripping off for the “Give It Up” music video and whether it was a risk, Nathan said it could’ve been if he’d received a bad response. The vocal powerhouse also claims that although he does wish he had a body like Justin Bieber, he just loves pizza, he confirms this by saying, “Literally on set I was eating pizza. Normally you’d be doing push-ups.”

Nathan Sykes’ new single “Give It Up” ft G-Eazy, is the third from his upcoming album which is expected later this year. Check out his music video now!
