Charli XCX reveals she would ‘love’ to write a song with Britney Spears

The singer's new album 'Sucker' is due for release on October 17

Charli XCX has spoken of her admiration of Britney Spears, revealing she would ‘love’ to co-write a song with the pop star.

The 22-year-old’s new album, ‘Sucker’, is due to be released on October 17 and will feature singles ‘Boom Clap’ and ‘Break The Rules’. Speaking to Digital Spy, she acknowledged Spears’ ongoing influence on her career.

“Oh my God, if she hit me up I would be so down, I’m an endless fan of Britney Spears. She massively inspired me when I was younger and still now.

“Britney’s punk, she doesn’t care. She’s crazy and amazing and her videos are next level. She’s great, I love Britney and I would so love to write a song with her.”

Charli XCX’s sophomore record will be released through Asylum Records. Having worked with Iggy Azalea on hit single ‘Fancy’ and Icona Pop on ‘I Love It’, earlier this year the Stevenage native told NME that she hoped to use her new LP as a launchpad for more solo success.

“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.”
