Charli XCX previews ‘Famous’ video – watch

Video will be revealed as part of this year's YouTube Music Awards

Charli XCX has revealed a preview of her new video for ‘Famous’. Scroll down to go behind the scenes of the promo now.

The ‘Famous’ video was directed by Eric Wareheim, one half of comedy duo Tim and Eric and also the director behind videos for artists including Major Lazer, MGMT, Beach House and Health. It will be revealed in full later this week as part of the 2015 YouTube Music Awards.


‘Famous’ features on XCX’s new album ‘Sucker’, released earlier this year.

Speaking to NME about ‘Sucker’, Charli XCX said she’d be using the LP to establish herself as a solo artist, after duetting with Iggy Azalea and writing for Icona Pop. “I can write a fucking hit song,” she said. “And I’m going to write some for me now. I feel like as an artist I’ve done so many collaborations now that I think I just want to take this record for myself.”

Earlier this year Charli XCX recorded a live cover of Taylor Swift single ‘Shake It Off’.
