Our final guest of season three is a BRIT & Grammy-nominated songwriter and artist who has framed a career for herself as one of the most respected, connected and commercially bankable songwriters in pop’s spectrum. She effortlessly plays the role of irresistible front-woman and the wizard behind the curtain pulling the puppet strings on millennial bangers such as “I Love It” by Icona Pop, “Boom Clap,” “Fancy” with Iggy Azalea, “After The Afterparty (feat. Lil Yachty),” and “Boys”. She is a fearless artist of unique distinction who has released two full albums (‘True Romance’ and ‘SUCKER’) and mix-tapes (‘Number 1 Angel’ and ‘Pop 2’ which starred collaborations with artists including MØ, RAYE, Starrah, Carly Rae Jepsen, CupecakKe, Caroline Polachek and Tove Lo). She is also a fashioned songwriter who has always adhered to her three golden songwriting rules: to not make boring pop music, not follow pop trends and not make pop music that has been made before. She’s written for artists such as Selena Gomez, Camilla Cabello, David Guetta, Blondie, James Blunt, Afrojack, Ryn Weaver, Stargate, will.i.am and Madeon. Presently, she is on a world tour with one of the biggest artists of a generation, Taylor Swift. Hailing from England, And The Writer Is…Charli XCX!
