Charli XCX: ‘I don’t care about having a hit album’ – watch

Singer won best Dancefloor Filler for 'Fancy' at the NME Awards 2015 with Austin, Texas

Charli XCX has said she “doesn’t care about having a hit album” and that she’s more excited about her first headline tour.

In an interview with NME at the NME Awards 2015 with Austin, Texas, which you can watch at the top of this page, the singer said: “I don’t really care about having a hit album, because like, what is that, like 10 copies now? I don’t care about having the number one album, I just care that my UK fans can get my album and come and see me live. I don’t care about the chart position and all of that shit, that’s not why I do this. I care about being able to go on my first ever UK headline tour. I have never played in Sheffield. I’m very excited to go to Sheffield.”

Charli XCX won the award for Dancefloor Filler for her collaborative track with Iggy Azalea – ‘Fancy’ – at the NME Awards 2015 with Austin, Texas. Shaun Ryder and Bez of the Happy Mondays presented the singer with the first award of the evening. Charli, who was dressed in a long leopard skin coat, said in her acceptance speech: “Thanks this is really cool. Thanks from Iggy too. Pussy power.”
