The track will be released on December 1 and is also slated to feature on the singer’s forthcoming second album. Her debut album, ‘True Romance’, was only released in April 2013 and featured the singles ‘You (Ha Ha Ha)’ and ‘What I Like’, although she also wrote the track ‘I Love It’, which become a smash hit for Icona Pop earlier this year.
In July of this year, Charli XCX insisted that she didn’t regret giving ‘I Love It’ to the Swedish duo, even though it was originally penned during sessions for her own album. Speaking to NME she said: “I don’t regret giving it away. [Icona Pop are] totally owning it. I sang it with them at South By Southwest, though, and it was this real girl power moment.”
Charli XCX also claims that she wrote the melody and lyrics in 30 minutes. On the difference between XCX’s original version and their own version, Icona Pop’s Caroline Hjelt said: “The original was more cute, in a way. Charli’s vocal was really cool and cocky, but we wanted the track to sound more Icona Pop so we took it to another producer called Style Of Eye. He made it exactly how we wanted it to sound.”
Last month, meanwhile,the UK singer-songwriter also recently revealed that she had written and submitted a track for Britney Spears‘ new studio album and admitted she was “freaking out” about the writing session. “I’ve been doing some writing for the Britney record. I was freaking out. I didn’t even want to go to the session I was so excited. I was so worried I would fuck it up,” said the 21-year-old. “I was doing some stuff for that yesterday actually. Who knows how it will go. We’ve written one song and it’s a great track and if she likes it then amazing. It was just an honour to be asked.”
