If you’re not familiar with Charli XCX, then trust us, it’s only a matter of time before you are.

2014 was a massive year for the up-and-coming pop singer, and she topped the charts all over the world with her Iggy Azalea collaboration ‘Fancy’, but it looks like the 12 months ahead will be even bigger for her.

While other territories are already enjoying her critically-acclaimed latest album ‘Sucker’, its release in her native Britain next month has been much-awaited, and she has been repeatedly named as “one to watch”, including at last year’s MTV Video Music Awards, and after watching her perform live at MTV's Brand New event , we can confirm that she more than lives up to the hype.

As well as her hit singles ‘Boom Clap’, taken from the soundtrack to ‘The Fault In Our Stars’, and ‘Break The Rules’, her upcoming album will feature ‘Doin’ It’, a collaboration with woman-of-the-moment Rita Ora, which will no doubt help propel it up the charts.
