Last night (May 26), the pop star took to TikTok to share a clip of herself getting ready to attend this year’s amfAR Gala in Cannes.
Beginning the clip wearing an “I [heart] gossip” t-shirt, Charli documents her beauty regime – hair, makeup and styling – with a big reveal of her final outfit at the end. The clip is soundtracked by an up-tempo new track from the singer.
“I’m gon’ be rockin’ it, droppin’ it/ Shake my ass, I’m stopping it/ I look hot in it, hot in it/ I look hot in it,” Charli sings on the track’s chorus.
No further information was shared, but according to multiple online posts, ‘Hot In It’ is a collaboration with Tiësto.

Charli’s last album was March’s ‘Crash’. In a four-star review, NME‘s El Hunt wrote: “Since the beginning, we’ve seen Charli XCX trying on many guises, whether she’s referencing new-wave on ‘Sucker’ or teaming up with SOPHIE to craft an alien new interpretation of pop on her 2016 EP ‘Vroom Vroom’.
“One emotion that her music will never evoke is boredom, and even when her sights are trained on infiltrating mainstream pop, she’s still an artist with a knack for surprising. If ‘Crash’ really does mark the death of Charli XCX as a major label artist – what a way to go.”
Directed by Halina Reijn, the A24 film follows Sophie (Amandla Stenberg) as she hosts a house party to introduce her girlfriend Bee (Maria Bakalova) to her group of friends. As they play a murder-in-the-dark game which ends in a real-life murder, the group have to investigate who is responsible.
The UK dance duo have also booked Franky Wah, Wesley Joseph, Lola Young and Joy Anonymous for the Saturday event held in London’s Victoria Park (buy tickets here).
