The wait is over: Charli XCX‘ much buzzed-about Charli has arrived on digital shelves everywhere and is ready to stream. It marks the burgeoning pop star’s third album effort, and perhaps her most ambitious endeavor to date, given her role as an executive producer on the project. It features collaborations with Troye Sivan, Brooke Candy, HAIM, Lizzo, Clairo, Kim Petra, Pabllo Vittar, CupcakKe, Big Freedia, Tommy Cash, and Yaeji.
Charli imbues a variety of influences into the record, fusing palatable pop overtones with hints of dance music, bass, and hip-hop and playing on the experimentalism exhibited over her last couple albums. Clocking in at 15 tracks in total, the full listen makes for a rollercoaster of a ride. Listen below.
