Women About To Pop: Azealia Banks
If we were putting together these lists in 2008, Charli XCX may well have appeared on it. The then 15-year-old was being hailed the next big thing in electro-pop circles and her half-sung, half-rapped anthems were staples on underground-pop blogs. Four years have passed and Charlotte Aitchison has matured both physically and musically. She’s still pushes the barriers of pop but is coming at it from a more commercial angle. The shift in attitude had immediate results. Hertfordshire’s hottest export is still the darling of the electro world but now has a record deal with IAMSOUND and a hot new single called “You’re The One” ready to assault the airwaves. To delve deeper into Charli XCX’s rave-pop sound, check out her recent Heartbreaks And Earthquakes mixtape.
