Charli XCX has been diligently teasing her new single on Twitter for the last couple of days, but it looks like the cat’s out of the bag. The Brit’s returns with a drug-fueled banger (see her emojis below) called “After The Afterparty.” The track features viral rapper Lil Yachty and is expected to drop on October 28. The songwriting and production details are still under wraps, but the 24-year-old recorded most of album number three with SOPHIE and Stargate. So my money’s on one or both of them.

“I didn’t want to make just an album with SOPHIE, and I didn’t want to make just an album with Stargate,” the pop star told Fader in a recent cover story. “I wanted to make an album with SOPHIE and Stargate. Sure, some of SOPHIE’s records are a little harsh and off-the-wall, but the goal is to be making progressive pop music.” And Charli doesn’t care what anyone thinks about her choice of collaborators. “I know people are going to be like, ‘She wanted to make the album with SOPHIE, and her label said, You need to put it with Stargate to make this work.’ But it was never about putting SOPHIE in a pop environment and flattening him out.”
