iHeartRadio NZ is thrilled to confirm that British pop star Charli XCX will be performing in Auckland, New Zealand on the 5th of May for the first time ever!
22-year-old Charli XCX burst onto the international pop scene in 2012 after co-writing and featuring on smash hit ‘I Love It’ with Swedish synthpop duo Icona Pop.
Things continued to heat up for the star in 2013, after she dropped her critically acclaimed debut album True Romance. Pitchfork gave the album a glowing review and 8.3 rating, claiming the star ‘…stamps her personality across the entire project… True Romance suggests she’ll be worth following for a while’.
In 2014, Charli XCX followed up her debut’s success by co-writing and featuring on Iggy Azalea’s global smash ‘Fancy’. ‘Fancy’ was arguably the biggest hit of 2014; spending seven weeks at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart, selling seven million copies worldwide and receiving two Grammy nominations including Record of the Year.
The worldwide love for ‘Fancy’ saw Charli XCX performing alongside Iggy Azalea at countless concerts, television shows and events across the globe, quickly establishing the Brit as a live performer not to be missed.
Her two solo tracks ‘Boom Clap’ and ‘Break the Rules’ have dominated the charts internationally. Combining her two features and two solo tracks, she now has a string of four platinum singles. Her latest track ‘Doing It’ (ft. Rita Ora) recently debuted on Buzzfeed and is sure to be another smash hit for the star.
After releasing her sophomore album SUCKER, featuring industry heavyweights like Patrick Berge, StarGate and Benny Blanco, the album earned the title of sixth best album of 2014 by Rolling Stone.
‘Charli XCX is the pop star 2014 was waiting for: a badass song writing savant who’s the most fun girl in any room she steps into.’ - Rolling Stone
