Charli XCX - Boom Clap

"This must be love"

Charli XCX has been circling the pop mainstream for awhile now. In addition to writing Icona Pop's huge smash I Love It, her vocals were featured prominently on the track and she's also the guest vocalist (and best part) of Iggy Azeala's summer hit, Fancy. She released an album last year, but it flew under the radar as a collection of solid, if not particularly commercial, artistic pop songs. Now, with this single a part of the hit Fault In Our Stars movie campaign, she could find her biggest success yet as a solo artist. And that wouldn't be a bad thing, given that this is probably her strongest, most mainstream release to date. It sounds a lot like the majority of Tegan and Sara's most recent album. It's a little dewy, a little lovelorn... very teen romance-worthy. But, it's also got that huge, simple hook that's bound to appeal to mainstream audiences. Whether she's got a whole album of this sort of stuff in her remains to be seen.
