Earlier this week, Charli XCX
went on BBC Radio 1 to release three new songs, "3am (Pull Up)," "Dreamer," and "Lip Gloss," along with an announcement about a 10-song mixtape called, Number 1 Angel
. Well, it's officially here and it's anything but innocent.
The anything-but-boring UK singer is embracing her "give no f*cks" attitude somehow even more. Number 1 Angel
is pretty much a diary of a wild child as Charli XCX sings about partying, drugs and fast love. "Lipgloss" is a glitchy, bubblegum pop track with raunchy lyrics like "Mm-mm, I keep it sticky-icky like lip gloss
" and "Roll With Me" is an extremely catchy, fun track and, by far, the most upbeat out of the ten. "Drugs" is a slow-rolling hazy cut about her love affair with her drug dealer while "3am (Pull Up)" is an electro-pop banger where she and MØ sing, "Go fuck yourself, don't say you're sorry.
" during the chorus. Charli XCX is a certified bad bitch.
The 24-year-old is clearly the life of party and Number 1 Angel
will hold you over until she releases the follow-up to 2014's Sucker
, which she says will be her "party album." Perfect.
