Charli XCX—

efore the sen­sa­tional eletropop sin­gles Boom Clap and Break the Rules took over night­clubs and ra­dio sta­tions around the world, Charli XCX (her real name is Char­lotte Emma Aitchi­son) was rel­a­tively un­known. She re­leased her first EP, You’re the One, in 2010 and her first al­bum, True Ro­mance, in 2013, but the 22-year-old Brit’s mu­sic and sig­na­ture raspy voice were only thrust into the spot­light when she fea­tured on the hip-hop smash hit Fancy by Iggy Aza­lea. Her suc­cess was guar­an­teed when Boom Clap fea­tured on the sound­track of 2014 teen movie The Fault in Our Stars and when her sec­ond al­bum, Sucker, was named the best pop al­bum of 2014 by Rolling Stone. The singer-song­writer also penned Icona Pop’s chart-top­ping synth-pop an­them I Love It, and she will be the sole sup­port act for Katy Perry’s Pris­matic world tour later this year.
