PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — We knew cornerback Brandon Boykin was versatile. He can play on the outside. He can play on the inside. He could return a kick or a punt.
Did you know he can act a little bit too?
Singer Jordin Sparks (you might remember her from American Idol) is once again releasing music after a bit of a hiatus and her knew single, “Double Tap,” is now out. A few days ago she unveiled the music video for the song which stars herself, rapper 2 Chainz and Boykin.
The Eagles cornerback is not Sparks’ only connection the NFL. She is the daughter or former professional football player, Phillippi Sparks.
Boykin plays the love interest to Sparks in the video. He actually hinted to his involvement on Twitter in February.
To understand Boykin’s role in the video, you have to know the meaning behind the song’s title. “Double Tap,” is a reference to everyone’s favorite picture and video based application, Instagram. When you see a video or picture that you like you double tap to let the person know.
Throughout the video, Sparks is seeking Boykin’s double tap on Instagram.
Their interaction in the video is not restricted just to looking at pictures. Toward the very end they meet.
However, the video leaves a little bit to the imagination.
