Australia's CXLOE is an emotive singer and songwriter who shades her sleek, yearning electro-pop with grittier alternative sensibilities. After appearing as a contestant on The X Factor, she released her debut track, "Tough Love," in 2017, garnering millions of streams on subsequent songs, including 2018's "Show You" and the next year's "I Can't Have Nice Things."
Raised in Sydney, Chloe Papandrea began singing at a young age and first came to the public's attention as a competitor on Australia's The X Factor in 2014. After her elimination, she continued to pursue her music career, adopting the stage name CXLOE and collaborating on tracks with Max Styler, Super Cruel, James Maas, and others. In 2017, she released the single "Tough Love," with "Monster" and "Show You" arriving the following year. Produced and co-penned by Maroon 5's Sam Farrar, "Show You" became a viral sensation, expanding her already sizable audience.
The year 2019 brought the release of collaborations with gnash ("SICK") and Lost Kings ("Ain't the Same") as well as several solo tracks, including "I Can't Have Nice Things" and "Low Blow." Still opting for singles over sets, CXLOE returned in mid-2020 with the addiction-themed "12 Steps." ~ Matt Collar & Marcy Donelson
