If the charts were a crime scene, CHARLI XCX’s DNA would be everywhere. An award-winning, multi-platinum-selling songwriter with a knack for insistently sticky melodies (see: Icona Pop’s ‘I Love It’ and Iggy Azalea's ‘Fancy’), Charli has definitively veered into her own lane with a slew of releases that see her pushing the perimeters of pop. Her recently released third album, Charli, pairs the cutting edge textures of PC Music with first class guest vocalists, from Lizzo, Haim and Skye Ferriera to Christine & The Queens, marking yet another left turn for a relentless trailblazer. At just 27, Charlotte Aitchison has won the coveted Sesac Songwriter of the Year twice, been nominated for multiple Grammys, runs her own record label and radio station and famously flipped the male gaze directing her own video for ‘Boys’, which featured thirsty shots of everyone from Stormzy and Diplo to our very own Flume.
