Charli XCX - Sucker

charliEngland’s Charli XCX currently rules as one of pop’s hottest properties, having written two of the biggest songs in recent memory: Icona Pop’s trashy smash “I Love It” and Iggy Azalea’s sassy blockbuster “Fancy,” which has earned her and the Aussie rapper a pair of nominations at next year’s Grammys. This summer, Charli, born Charlotte Aitchison, had her song “Boom Clap” featured in the hit movie Fault in Our Stars and another, “Kingdom,” in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Pt. 1. Now the 22-year-old star has her second major-label album ready to dominate the charts. Featuring the heart-thumping “Boom Clap” and her delightfully bratty “Break the Rules,” both already hits, the 13-track collection includes her collaborations with Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo and such instant ear-worm numbers as “Die Tonight.” As she sings in one of the album’s best songs, Charli’s “living the dream, like a London Queen.”
