Over the course of her trailblazing career, Charli XCX has earned critical acclaim for her forward-thinking musical output and refreshing entrepreneurial spirit that has seen her carve her own lane on the global pop circuit. A singer, songwriter, video director, documentary maker, radio host and record label boss - there’s nothing the British 27-year-old can’t turn her hand to.
Charlotte Aitchison, aka Charli XCX, has become one of the hottest creators of her generation and is the multi-award-winning talent behind the multi-platinum and global No.1’s “Fancy” and “I Love It” and UK Top 10 “Boom Clap."
In 2017, she bookended the year with her critically-acclaimed mixtapes No. 1 Angel and Pop 2, featured on David Guetta and Afrojack’s global smash “Dirty Sexy Money” and released her standout summer crush anthem “Boys”.
2018 proved to be another stellar year. Following a series of tracks drops – “5 In The Morning”, “No Angel”, “Focus”, and “Girls Night Out” – heralded mixtape shows, which she brought to the UK and Europe and a global support tour with Taylor Swift, XCX returned with her throwback UK Top 15 smash “1999” feat. Troye Sivan. The accompanying video, which sits at 26 million views, was co-produced by Charli and paid homage to standout cultural references from the year of 1999 throughout.
In 2019, XCX made good on her promise to release new music, debuting her highly anticipated third studio album Charli which includes collaborations from Lizzo, Christine and the Queens, Haim, Troye Sivan, Brooke Candy, CupcakKe, Big Freedia, Sky Ferreira, Clairo and Yaeji -- with Sucker (2015) and True Romance (2013) albums also under her belt.
Charli performed a duet of “We Can’t Stop” with Miley Cyrus, a collaborative track with Diplo and Herve Pagez, “Spicy" which reworks the Spice Girls classic “Wannabe.” XCX simultaneously debuted an undeniable album track “Gone” with Christine and the Queens live on stage at Primavera Sound Festival, before embarking on a nearly sold-out Charli LIVE World tour.
Charli has accrued two Billboard Music Awards, a YouTube Music Award, two SESAC ‘Songwriter of the Year’ Awards, plus nominations at the Grammys, BRIT Awards and MTV EMAs. Not to mention the studio time she’s commanded with the likes of Camila Cabello [Charli co-wrote the Grammy nominated “Señorita”], Blondie, Selena Gomez [Charli co-wrote her U.S. No.1 “Same Old Love”], Gwen Stefani, Benny Blanco, David Guetta, Zara Larsson, Khalid and Diplo.
Alongside her music projects, Charli has been a strong fixture within fashion. In May, Charli attended the Met Gala as a special guest of Anna Wintour and Vogue, followed by a performance at Cannes Film Festival for the amfAR Gala.
