Charli XCX

Charli XCX gained attention in 2013 when she co-wrote and featured on the hit single I Love It for the Swedish duo Icona Pop. The single went on to be a breakthrough wining hit for the girls, including the Icona Pop duo.

Recently, pop goth punk Charli XCX released her third debut single "Doing It". This time she teamed up with British pop sensation Rita Ora for this funky track.

Doing It is a bubble gum pop track that has a mixture of different musical elements such as synthpop and dance pop.

The video theme was inspired by Thelma & Louise (1991), Natural Born Killers (1994) and the Barbie fashion doll.

The new single Doing It Right was released on the 6th of February 2015, as the third single taken off Charli XCX’s third studio album SUCKER. The single is available to download on Itunes and the album SUCKER is in stores now.

I really love the song; it takes the vibes back to the 1980’s with its futuristic polly block sound influences that can be heard in the song. Charli XCX laid down her dark pop grungy vocals and Rita Ora’s vocals blends in well with the essences of the song. Charli XCX does have that girl power charm.
