Following in the footsteps of Mad Decent singer/songwriter LIZ, British pop-rebel Charli XCX has teamed up with PC Music affiliate SOPHIE for a new single that’s lyrically designed to shamelessly blare in the car. “Vroom vroom—bitches know they can’t catch me; vroom vroom—cute, sexy and my ride’s sporty,” the Sucker artist raps with the same bratty high school sensibility she’s been known to embrace on tracks like “SuperLove” and “Break The Rules.”
This release, which officially premiered today on Beats 1, follows a slew of collaborations that Charli’s been pumping out since releasing her sophomore album in 2014, including her lustrous Giorgio Moroder entry, “Diamonds,” and a funky cover of “Groove is in the Heart” with The Roots’ Questlove and Black Thought.
Though “Vroom Vroom” will never likely make the same Top 40 impact as her breakthrough single, “Boom Clap,” it’s perfect for listeners who’ve been following the singer since her more experimental True Romance days. Listen, below:
