British singer/songwriter Charli XCX has been invading the music scene for the past two years, with her bold chart topping collaborations and original material. Charli has been writing from an early age, and soon started sparking attention with her writing and work with different artists. She co-wrote Icona Pop’s “I Love It”, released for digital download in 2012, the track gave both artists their first US hit peaking at #7 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. XCX also co-wrote and featured on Iggy Azalea’s 2014 hit single “Fancy”, which topped many international charts.
Playing on tours since 2011, alongside the likes of The Ting Tings, Coldplay, Ellie Goulding, Marina & The Diamonds, Paramore and most recently Katy Perry, has really helped get her music noticed. Her 2014 solo single “Boom Clap” gave her, the first solo top 10 track of her career. Her second studio album Sucker is currently at #15 on the UK album chart. The video for “Sucker”, one of the songs from the albums, has been released to support this year’s YouTube Music Awards which was announced earlier today (March 23). A party pop song, with a video that conveys quite a strong message about our obsession with technology through creepy imagery, watch the video for “Famous” below.
