Listen to Charli XCX's ultrasweet "Lipgloss."
British pop artist Charli XCX has occasionally dabbled in hip hop, most notably on Ty Dolla $ign's 2015 "Drop that Kitty," a song I predicted would be the song of the summer upon hearing it for the first time. (It was not.)
Charli has just released Number 1 Angel, a "mixtape" serving as a prelude to her upcoming third studio album. The tape concludes with "Lipgloss," an ultrasweet electronic track featuring a verse from the deliciously profane 19-year-old Chicago rapper cupcakKe. Believe it or not, this verse is actually tame by cupcakKe's standards.
Never trust a man who wear briefs
'Cause he gon' wanna fuck and keep it brief
Call again when you need somethin' to eat
So I could open my legs, bon appétit
