SHOUT OUT TO GAY HORSES I SUPPORT YOU

The 5 songs to hear on Charli XCX’s ‘Number 1 Angel’ mixtape

Charli XCX’s Number 1 Angel is the perfect merger of pop and PC Music I’ve been waiting for. I got together with some of our other Project U folk to recommend to you the five tracks you have to hear.

3AM (Pull Up) ft MØ

This track has the best hook of the whole album + the ‘uh da da ooh’ is truly iconic.

Roll with Me

Production-wise, Roll With Me is the stand out of the release. The SOPHIE-produced bop is a clean, energetic and mesmerising moment and Charli’s much more chill vocal (in comparison to some other tracks on the mixtape) compliments the production perfectly.

Emotional

Emotional is the perfect sadbanger that I needed from Charli.

ILY2

This one was produced by Danny L Harte, the guy from the amazing Carly Rae Jepsen collab Supernatural.

The guitar/synth line on ILY2 is so triumphant I’ve always gotta air guitar it.

Lipgloss ft CupcakKe

This song is absolutely ridiculous. The production is in your face, the “Mhmm, I keep it sticky-icky like lipgloss” hook is addictive and the verses from CupcakKe are on an insane NSFW level I’ve never encountered before. The lyric annotations on Genius are remarkable.
