Charli XCX Trounces Her Ex in New Single, ‘Breaking Up’

charli xcx, breaking up, sucker, new single

After lighting up the American Music Awards last night with the one-two punch of “Boom Clap” and “Break the Rules,” Charli XCX has just released her scuzzy new smash, “Breaking Up.” The track continues the British singer’s brat-pop inspired streak of singles, including the tough-as-nails “London Queen” and the jangling “Gold Coins.” Charli’s vocals are scratchy and strong, filled with personality as she chomps down on her ex-bashing lyrics. “You said forever / But baby I’m not so sure,” she slurs with flair. Stream it below, and look for Charli’s album Sucker on December 16.
