Charli XCX Lands Billboard Cover Story

Charli XCX
British singer-songwriter Charli XCX first came to mainstream prominence in 2012 when she sang on Icona Pop’s crossover anthem, “I Love It.” Two years later, the 22-year-old was featured on an even bigger hit — Iggy Azalea’s ubiquitous “Fancy” — the first number one single for both artists.
In June, Charli proved that she’s capable of achieving mainstream success on her own with the release of “Boom Clap” — a single that’s received 56 million YouTube plays and a peak position of eight on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. Her latest single, “Break the Rules,” is quickly gaining momentum and could become her next hit.
With all the recent success, it makes sense that Billboard chose the British pop star as their October 2014 cover story.
