You've heard her voice before, maybe without even realizing it. Last summer "I Love It" by Icona Pop was the anthem of choice. Charli XCX was featured on that track just as she is now on this year's summer anthem: "Fancy" with Iggy Azalea. The song marked her first Billboard number one and showed that her formula had finally paid off. This British babe's songs all showcase loud, punchy choruses sung by a youthful, yet powerful voice. "Boom Clap" is more of what we've subconsciously come to love from Charli XCX.
"Boom Clap" is a to-the-point love song about Charli's heart beat as she falls for someone instantly. The song is featured on The Fault In Our Stars' soundtrack, the perfect vehicle for audiences to hear Charli solo. I love the simple sing-along refrain, rebellious lyrics and alto tone of this track. Like young love, the song is quick, passionate, fleeting and addictive. I can't wait to see The Fault In Our Stars movie after I finish reading the John Green novel it's based off of.
