Charli XCX – “Break The Rules” (video)...

Only because I am so infatuated by Charli, here’s a video I was supposed to post a while back. Now I’m just creating enough text to fill the preview. That should be enough. Enjoy the video by Charli XCX from her album, Sucker....

Charli XCX – “Break The Rules”...

Is Charli XCX’s “Break The Rules” the record that finally breaks through and properly introduces her as a major pop star? Doubtful. The track is too good. The hook is catchy. Charli’s voice is still youthful but powerful. But the production is not pop, it’s pink punk pop (I think that’s how Buzzfeed…yeah fucking Buzzfeed… described it). I don’t wanna go to school. I just wanna break the rules. Boys and girls across the world Putting on our dancing shoes, Going to the discotheque Getting high and getting wrecked. I don’t wanna go to school. I just wanna break the rules. Sure there are classic trap and drop elements in the song, but I feel like this song could’ve been a hit in the 90s and 00s. I want this song to succeed. I want Charli XCX to succeed; she has talent for days. But in the jaded world of 2014, Charli’s pink anarchy anthem will likely need a supplementary boost from a commercial outlet. Or maybe I’m just out of touch and that goofy cancer movie she wrote a song for will propel Charli XCX to pop stardom. That would be nice....

Nelson (@AmyKNelson) March 4, 2014 These are my thoughts while listening to the song. I tried to not watch the shameless Clueless callback. My notes as punctuation and capitalization optional. “First things first, I’m the realest.” If you have to tell me, you ain’t that. female French Montana rooftop like we bringing ’88 back – Nas homage or bite? Charli XCX’s voice is a shrill counterpoint to Iggy Azalea’s contralto rapping voice Shrill has a bad connotation. I can’t think of a better word for Charli. Her voice just cuts through the jerk beat. And I really like Charli XCX as an artist. Iggy Azalea is the best white girl rapper Charli XCX has worked with so far. I hate the beat drop threat of “Tipsy” in the first verse. Chingy’s career should stay dead and buried. (Jacked from MTV Buzzworthy…go there for more animated...
