Charli XCX has a new single and it's a bloody good pop song

Remember what I was saying on Tuesday about pop stars needing to be likeable? Well here's Charli XCX, an artist who's sometimes come across as distant and cold, throwing caution to the wind with a breezy, accessible new look. She even smiles in the video.

Superlove is "a completely new vibe," the singer admitted to Digital Spy earlier this month. "I wrote the song the same week as [Icona Pop's] I Love It. Let's just say I was in a similar mind frame!"

If you liked Charli's debut album True Romance, which came out earlier this year, you're going to love this: From the sugar-spun chorus to the gratuitously stupid "in da club" reference. And if that's not enough for you, Charli deploys pop's secret weapon: The double handclap. Amazing.


Charli XCX - Superlove

Superlove isn't out until 1 December, which seems mad, but there you go.
