TGIF: You're The One

Pinned Image
Charli XCX, est. 1992


I have to say, this new crop of 1990s pop hoodlums are kind of...killing it. Their fresh indie-pop tunes are, at times, just what the doctor's ordered when you're looking forward to a weekend that's as carefree and frivolous as the artists themselves.

This Charli XCX ditty, in particular, has been a staple on my playlists lately. All of them. Whether I'm up, down, lively, quiet; whatever I'm feeling, it fits the bill. Although both are fabulous, and the original is in every way edgier - this airy, tropical St. Lucia spin is the best kind of remix. It's when they undress the dark elements from the original and add in a more flowery, lighthearted flavour that the song captures a new kind of versatility - all while maintaining Charli XCX's sassy flare.

Happy Friday!
