10 Songs, 40 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Self-assured and sonically restless, Charli XCX is a chameleonic pop force. This mixtape lets her middle-finger-flipping attitude loose on '80s synth-pop and it’s a cinematic experience loaded with sharp plot twists, A-list cameos, and an epic finale. The curtain rises with the Carly Rae Jepsen-starring “Backseat”’s sparse, coiled electro, and Charli sharply questions the cost of love across staccato beats on “Porsche," but “Out of My Head” is the real scene-stealer. United with Tove Lo and ALMA, the trio bid to rid themselves of a no-good lover on a shimmering pop gem. This is the sound of girl power in 2017.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

Amazing

Kim Petras, MØ, Carly Rae Jepsen, Mykki Blanco, Tove Lo, ALMA.....wow. The collabs are great, and the solo tracks are incredible. Some of XCX's best work, if not her best.
