Charli XCX Confirms ‘Pop 2’ Mixtape, Teases Lead Single
Charli XCX hinted at a sequel to Number 1 Angel earlier this week and shared a list of potential collaborators including Carly Rae Jepsen, Tove Lo, MØ, ALMA, Kim Petras, CupcakKe, Brooke Candy, Pabllo Vittar and Caroline Polachek. It sounds too good to be true, but it’s happening. The Brit’s second mixtape is called, appropriately enough, Pop 2 and the star-studded lineup was confirmed in a video teaser. She’s dropping the lead single, “Out Of My Head,” tomorrow (December 8) and it features Tove Lo and ALMA.
Produced by SOPHIE and A. G. Cook, the electro-pop anthem premiered on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show last night and it sounds like a hit. Of course, Charli dropped a mixtape earlier this year in response to her record label pushing back the release date of her third album. Unfortunately, it looks like the “Vroom Vroom” hitmaker is still in the same position nine months later. On the bright side, she found a way to get her music out there and promote underground pop acts in the process. See the trailer for Pop 2, which is rumored to drop next week, below.
