Charli XCX has a hit on her hands with “Out Of My Head” featuring Tove Lo & Alma.
The British pop star announced a star-studded mixtape this week. It features Carly Rae Jepsen, MØ, Tove Lo, Mykki Blanco, Brook Candy, Chairlift frontwoman Caroline Polacheck, Finnish singer Alma, rapper Cupcakke, Pabllo Vittar, Jay Park, Kim Petras, Dorian Electra, Tommy Cash, and A.G. Cook.
We don’t know much else, but it’s rumored to drop next week (yas sis take on Eminem) and is reportedly titled POP 2. Above is the cover art. However, we got a taste of it today (Dec. 6). Charli dragged herself out of bed after a long night of performing and partying in Australia to call into Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show to premiere one of the mixtape cuts, “Out Of My Head.” It features Tove Lo and Alma, and is produced by SOPHIE and PC Music frontman A. G. Cook. It’s catchy as hell.
“Glitter in my sheets / Dancing on no sleep / I don’t learn, wanna burn, wanna turn all the way up, yeah / I don’t learn, wanna burn in the dirt ’til I’m out of luck, yeah,” Tove Lo sings in the intro over stuttering synths.
Alma handles the chorus. “I’m out of my, out of my head / Out of my head / Please, get out of my, out of my, out of my / Out of my head.”
Meanwhile, Charli slides in for a verse of her own. “Partyin’ with my tears
Swayin’ with my fears / Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah / Let em dry, get me high, I’ll get by if I’m getting love / Let em dry, get me high, I get by with a little love / Now give me.”
