Charli XCX, ‘Sucker’


Aidin Vaziri | Charli XCX is everywhere. She sang the hook on Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy,” wrote Icona Pop’s worldwide hit “I Love It,” and her songs are featured on the soundtracks of blockbusters “The Fault in Our Stars” and “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay.” With her third studio album, “Sucker,” she’s trying to ensure that we don’t forget her name anytime soon. Its tightly wound synthesizer pop confections such as “Break the Rules” and “Breaking Up” are high on attitude and hooks. While extended listening may numb the senses of anyone out of high school, her songs are sure to bother the charts for months to come.
