Charli XCX Makes Amsterdam Go ‘Boom Clap’ in New Video
'The Fault in Our Stars' soundtrack clip also includes footage from the film
It’s about time for Charli XCX to have a huge hit under her own name. If it happens with “Boom Clap,” the fault — or, more accurately, credit — could lie with new movie The Fault in Our Stars. The mastermind behind Icona Pop’s “I Love It” is currently atop the Billboard Hot 100 as the scene-stealer on Iggy Azalea’s The New Classic single “Fancy,” but this “SuperLove”-worthy electro-pop burst sees her back on her own. The video goes between colorfully doodled-around shots of the British singer wandering through Amsterdam and dramatic footage from the film, which has a soundtrack that also features Lykke Li’s downcast “No One Ever Loved.” If “boom clap” is “the sound of my heart,” as the True Romance-r belts out here, she shouldn’t be alone in that particular cardiac condition.
