Charli XCX Announces ‘Number 1 Angel: The Mixtape’
Update: Stream three new songs (“Pull Up” featuring MØ, “Dreamer” featuring Raye and Starrah, and “Lipgloss” featuring CupcakKe) below.
Charli XCX is releasing a mixtape called Number 1 Angel as a gift for music-starved fans. The opus drops on Friday (March 10), but you won’t have to wait that long to hear something new. She’s debuting three (!) tracks tonight on BBC Radio 1 with Mista Jam. “I’m so fucking happy this mixtape is nearly out,” the 24-year-old captioned the cover art on Instagram. “I’m so proud of this collection of songs. Angels, this is for you. I love you all. Thank you for your eternal support. Angel power.”
The Brit decided to release the project as a stopgap when her third LP was pushed back until later this year. “I don’t even know, it’s just going to be later. September, roughly,” she said of the album in a radio interview. “There’s a mixtape coming. I just got bored and just made a load of songs and decided to put them out.” While the tracklist is yet to be revealed, we know it includes a collaboration with rising rapper CupcakKe. “My pussy taste sweet because I eat my pineapple,” she spits in a snippet.
