Charli XCX Breaks the Rules
August 25, 2014
By Michelle Salgado

She gained world-wide recognition alongside Iggy Azalea with the #1 hit song, “Fancy,” and now she’s making waves on her own. With her song “Boom Clap” hitting the Billboard top 10, Charli is proving to the world that she’s ready to take over the pop scene on her own on her own terms.

Last Monday Charli surprised fans with a new single, “Break the Rules,” which was a refreshing mix of pop with and air of electronic and punk with a catchy bass line and now this Monday she released the Jawbreaker-esque music video! Charli had mentioned that she was interested in putting out a punk album (with epic covers of songs like this) and channeled elements of that into a new album, Sucker, which comes out October 21st! Charli told Buzzfeed: "This song was written when I came out of the other side of that punk phase and translated it into something more pop. Obviously, it’s about not giving a fuck.”

 

In the midst of all this, Charli is about to embark on a North American tour this Fall! Find her in a city near you:
