Charlotte Emma Aitchison is an English singer and songwriter born on August 2, 1992, who goes by the stage name Charli XCX. She was born in Cambridge and grew up in Start Hill, Essex. In 2008, she started putting songs on MySpace, which is how a promoter found her and asked her to play at warehouse raves. She got a recording contract with Asylum Records in 2010 and put out several singles and mixtapes in 2011 and 2012.
Charli XCX became famous in 2012 with the song “I Love It” she did with Icona Pop. It was a big hit worldwide, making it top 10 in North America and Europe. People liked her first studio record, True Romance (2013), when it came out, but it didn’t do as well as she had hoped in the sales department. She wrote the hook and bridge for rapper Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” in 2014. The song was one of the best-selling tracks in the world that year and was nominated for two Grammy Awards.

Charli XCX Career
It was “the most pop thing and the most electronic thing” that Charli XCX had ever done when she talked about her third record. Sophie, a Scottish producer, BloodPop, and Stargate were revealed to have worked on the album.
She played a new song called “Vroom Vroom” for the first time on the Beats 1 Radio Show in October 2015 and said it would be the first song from her third solo album. She started a new experimental pop record label called Vroom Vroom Recordings on February 23, 2016, and her first EP, Vroom Vroom, would be out on February 26, 2016.
That day, the main song came out for real. Another song from the EP called “Trophy” was played for the first time that night on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show. It was also said that she would have her Beats 1 show every two weeks. Sophie mostly made Vroom Vroom as a teaser for her third studio record. When her avant-pop EP came out, it was a big change from her previous record, and reviews were mixed.
