Here’s our list of artists featured alongside Charli XCX for her new songs.
During an interview, Charli XCX shared that she only really listens to artists she collaborates with
She’s a pop star, a style icon, and a friend to the LGBTQ community. Charli XCX first burst into the music industry with songs like “I Love It” and “Boom Clap.” Since then, she expanded her repertoire and, with songs like “Track 10” and “Vroom Vroom,” truly helped redefine pop music. During an interview with Glamour Magazine, Charli elaborated on the music she listens to. Primarily, the artists she includes in her albums like Pop 2 and her most recently released album, entitled Charli.
“I don’t listen to a lot of other music aside from people that I work with or my own, which probably sounds really narcissistic and crazy. But I work with people because I think they’re the best,” she said. “I love being a curator. I just think it’s fun because I know I’m smart enough to do it.”
Charli XCX recently released her album entitled ‘Charli’
Although Charli XCX periodically released singles, her album officially dropped on Sept. 13, 2019. This was the first full-length album the artist released since her 2017 success Pop 2. Almost instantly, this new album was welcomed by fans with open arms. Primarily, members of the LGBTQ community commented on Charli XCX’s new music.
“Everyone has better taste in the queer community, anyway,” Charli XCX said during the interview. “It’s not conscious. I’m not, like, ‘Where are the queer artists? I want to work with them!’ But I think I do naturally gravitate toward the queer community. The majority of my friends are in the community. I just feel that energy supporting me so much. I really wouldn’t be where I am without that community. When we go out, it’s often with the community at an LGBTQ+ club or night or something like that.”
