Number 1 Angel
On this adventurous mixtape, Charli XCX offers her own spin on contemporary pop trends, from Auto-Tuned hip-hop (“Dreamer feat. Starrah & RAYE”) to melodic dancehall (“3AM Pull Up feat. MØ”) to bubblegum bangers sauced with rap (“Lipgloss feat. CupcakKe”). Each sound gets the Charli treatment: pitched synths, distorted vocals, and a full dose of IDGAF attitude. In that way, she’s not just meditating on today’s pop landscape—she’s placing herself firmly at the center of it.
