Biography

Charli XCX (born Charlotte Aitchison; August 2nd 1992) Charli XCX is a British popstar who shot to fame when she appeared on Icona Pop's 'I Love It'.

Musical career: Charli XCX's first album, '14', was given away to attendees at her earliest gigs, which happened to be illegal raves. She signed to Asylum 

Records in 2010 and gained recognition for her singles 'Stay Away' and 'Nuclear Seasons' in 2011.

In 2012, she released two mixtapes - 'Heartbreaks and Earthquakes' and 'Super Ultra' - and toured alongside Santigold and Coldplay.

After co-writing 'I Love It', Icona Pop brought the track to number one, thrusting both artists into mainstream attention.

Her major label debut was 2013's 'True Romance' and the following year she released 'Sucker' which featured the singles 'Boom Clap' (which appeared in the movie 'The Fault in Our Stars'), 'Break the Rules' and 'Doing It' featuring Rita Ora. She had initially released the single 'SuperLove', before it was decided that it wouldn't appear on the album.

In 2014, she appeared on Iggy Azalea's chart-topping single 'Fancy'. That year she was also announced to support Katy Perry on her Prismatic World Tour.

In 2015, Charli embarked on her own Sucker World Tour, and announced that she would accompany Jack Antonoff and his band Bleachers on a co-headlining tour of the US.

Personal life: Though born in Cambridge, Charli XCX grew up in Hertfordshire and went to Bishop's Stortford College. 

She has been writing music since the age of 14 and has the condition sound-to-colour synaesthesia, which means she sees music in terms of colour.
