There have been a few false alarms with Charli XCX. Despite having moderate success with songs like “Boom Clap” and “Break the Rules” as well as collaborative credits on the 2013 mega-hit “I Love It,” Charli hasn’t achieved household name status. Publications and music critics have continued to claim her time was coming, but a few false starts haven’t panned into too much mainstream success. Luckily, I think it’s official: Charli XCX’s time is coming.
Not only did she make a splash with her free mixtape Number 1 Angel, she recently captured everyone’s attention with the genius music video for “Boys.” It has people talking and it’s also incredibly catchy. Even better, Charli directed it herself.
It’s a long time coming, but Charli XCX is officially making it, in part due to her clever, fun and incredibly relevant lyrics. “Boys” is full of relatable sentiments and catchy phrases, and she specializes in stuff that almost sounds like fluff… but it’s just too familiar. You’ve probably said more than a few of her lines to yourself. She’s playful, memorable and innovative, just like the perfect Instagram photo.
Let Charli’s lyrics inspire some likes with the help of these quotes that are perfect for your next Instagram caption.
