Charli XCX is remarkable. Not only does her smart-girl brand of pop sound amazing, but she can claim something very few artists performing these days can: She writes not only her music, but music for others, as well. (See: Icona Pop's "I Love It" or Britney Spears.) Not only does she shine, Charli's also a pretty incredible collaborator, supporting those ladies who are on the grind with her. The British ingenue has a new album coming out, reenacts Clueless on her free time, and is just generally someone we are so excited about watching evolve, again and again.
