Charli XCX truly has been the gift that keeps on giving in 2017.
Earlier this year, the “Boom Clap” hit-maker released the spectacular “Boys” and the collaboration-heavy Number 1 Angel mixtape to tide us over until the release of her third studio album. And with no release date in sight for the proper follow-up to 2014’s Sucker, Charli‘s yet again decided to keep the party going with another mixtape: Pop 2!
The 10-track collection features more guests this time around (Carly Rae Jepsen, Tove Lo, MØ, ALMA, Kim Petras, CupcakKe, Brooke Candy, Pabllo Vittar and Caroline Polachek) and even crazier beats, courtesy of her Number 1 Angel collaborators SOPHIE and A.G. Cook.
Charli returns badder, more unfiltered and more confident than ever before on Pop2. Not one song is similar to the other and yet together they all make perfect sense. She’s pouring herself into each and every one of these songs, at times unexpectedly, emotional and aggressive like on “Lucky” and “Delicious” with Tommy Cash where she snarls with edge and attitude over an array of dance beats. Pop2 pushes the experimental vibe of Number 1 Angel to the next level while increasing its production value. It’s pure fun from start to finish.
