Charli XCX dropped her totally-worth-the-wait debut True Romance today (April 16), and over the weekend she unveiled the remix to one the album's standouts, "What I Like." For the reworked version, high-energy Detroit rapper Danny Brown hops onto the druggy love ballad for one of his typically rambunctious (but atypically clean) verses, dialing up the energy with his squealing flow before Charli comes back with her relaxed psuedo-rap bridge. It's a match made in blog buzz heaven, and you can hear it below. [...]
First off, I'd like to apologize: I was fortunate enough to chat with the beautiful Caroline Hjelt and Aino Jawo of Icona Pop a while ago but - until today - had been unable to locate the audio recording amongst my cluttered desktop. Anyway, these lovely ladies spilled everything from the idea behind the inescapable "I Love It" and playing at the iconic (ha!) Madison Square Garden to how much they love the TV show Girls and the real reason as to how Swedes [...]
by PETER TABAKIS Like any overachiever, Charlotte Aitchison remains unsatisfied with her current success. It’s not enough that she’s created some very good, if not exceptional, pop songs. She strives to craft what she calls “luscious and beautiful and cinematic” music. And though she’s been getting plenty of positive attention since 2011, she longs for stardom. Aitchison has toiled to reach both goals – artistic recognition and big-time celebrity – for four years now. She first made the rounds singing for small crowds at East London raves, after being discovered as a [...]
Something about the goth-pop style of UK singer Charli XCX I really dig and the fact she grabbed Detroit's Danny Brown for a remix of "What I Like" just solidified her cool factor. It actually came as a bit of a surprise yesterday when this made the rounds on the web, but then again we shouldn't be shocked as Danny Brown likes to jump on random songs. He actually fits in perfectly with the synth-heavy song and his energy gives Charli XCX 's track a whole new energetic vibe. You can stream the [...]

Currently riding high on the Hot 100 with the brazen “I Love It,” a song she co-wrote, demoed and graciously handed over to Swedish duo Icona Pop , Charli XCX deserves more recognition than the “featuring” credit that single affords her. A battle-scarred pop veteran at the ripe old age of 21, Charli has been banging away at a music career since she was a kid, releasing artsy singles funded by her folks until an actual label (IAMSOUND) spotted her talent and snatched her up tout de suite. As often happens in the industry, tout de suite [...]

by MATT CONOVER This interview you're about to read took place on the Thursday before South by Southwest, as Charlotte Aitchison took a break from packing for a month of shows, beginning in Austin. "I'm trying to figure out my life, basically," said Charli XCX. "It's kind of a mess right now, but it's all good." Despite the pre-tour chaos, she talked enthusiastically about her music, so much so that I often had to slow down my tape as I transcribed this interview to understand what exactly she had said. The consequences of her [...]

"What I Like" and its accompanying video made for a solid single package. They felt like a pop artist trying out an interesting aesthetic, putting it on and strutting around a bit. Bringing Danny Brown on board for the remix gives the song the bit edge it had previously been missing, and may have stopped you from completely buying into its original iteration. The detroit emcee's performance is vintage Brown, and has the residual effect of making us excited for his album, Old , which is due out sometime later this year. Charli's debut [...]
