Charli XCX

At 21 years old, Charli XCX has officially entered the ‘fast lane’ as she pens in her co-written smash “Fancy” with Iggy Azalea – a #1 hit for seven straight weeks from the London-based singer/songwriter – also responsible for last year’s “I Love It” (which she wrote and recorded with Icona Pop) and her latest RIAA certified Gold single, “Boom Clap” (from the “The Fault In Our Stars” soundtrack).

Off the heels of five MTV Video Music Award nominations and four Teen Choice Award nominations for two song-of-the-summer competitors, “Boom Clap” and “Fancy”—Charli XCX releases a booming “Boom Clap” remix package, landing multiple Hype Machine chart placements, from Aeroplane, ASTR, Surkin, Elk Road and Punk Party; out today via Neon Gold/Atlantic and streaming on Billboard.com.

“Is Charli XCX the new Adele?”NY POST (via The Telegraph)

 

“The darkly peppy song [“Boom Clap”] should help Charli breakthrough as an artist in her own right. After second chairing on Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” and last year’s summer hit by Icona Pop “I Love It,” she’s ready for it.”TIME

“With not one, but two tracks in the running for the oh-so-important title of Song of the Summer, [‘Fancy’ & ‘Boom Clap’], Charli XCX is having the kind of year that most musicians dream of.”—VOGUE

 

“Charli XCX’s love-drunk “Boom Clap” is a hit, maybe because of its connection to teenage tearjerker The Fault In Our Stars, or maybe because the British singer is finally stepping into the mega-pop realm we anticipated for her when she was still a teenage”—THE FADER

“Charli XCX is remarkable. Not only does her smart-girl brand of pop sound amazing, but she can claim something very few artists performing these days can: She writes not only her music, but music for others, as well.”—REFINERY 29
