Pop music’s esteemed vanguard Charli XCX reunited with global pop sensation Troye Sivan on a futuristic follow up “2099,” following the duos first collaboration ‘1999’ from the GRAMMY nominated, platinum selling artist’s new third studio album “Charli” out now on Atlantic Records.
The Bradley & Pablo directed music video, arriving today, sees the British pop trailblazer and her recurring heart-throb collaborator Troye Sivan effortlessly driving into future times together on jet skis and joined later by a gang of others… but only Charli knows what will happen next.
“This is the best video ever,” Charli proudly grins. “I’m so happy I made it. Troye and I are so talented. Thank you to Bradley & Pablo for directing and also to Troye, who trained so hard for the shoot. Enjoy.”
Last night, Charli XCX sat down for an interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon (WATCH) and also performed her single “Gone” featuring Christine & The Queens (WATCH). Tune in to the show again on Wednesday for a comedy skit with the pop auteur and Jimmy Fallon.
The art of collaboration is at the heart of “Charli,” a verified savior of pop, Charli seamlessly binds musical genres from the vast pop spectrum. With Executive Production by Charli XCX and A. G. Cook, collaborators include Lizzo, Christine and the Queens, Haim, Troye Sivan, Brooke Candy, CupcakKe, Big Freedia, Sky Ferreira, Clairo and Yaeji. Charli teamed with AR makeup artist Ines Alpha to design her artworks with a goal of dismantling classic beauty ideals, a pairing which resulted in her striking album cover.
