Charli XCX is on her way to synthpop stardom, and she has only recently turned 21. With a guest spot on one of this year's biggest and most infectious singles, Icona Pops "I Love It," and her own well-received major label debut album True Romance, Charli has found the right time and place to market her modern and fun take on 90s goth and pop. As she's begun headlining her own shows and gaining even more notice from the music world and its fans, expect to see more from this budding English talent. Or at least prepare to have one of her songs stuck in your head for days.
