“’Boom Clap’ is a magical song to me. It celebrates epic love. I want people to dance and cry to it, and scream it at the top of their lungs.” — Charli XCX
London-based singer/songwriter Charli XCX delivers a new video for her single, “Boom Clap” off the highly anticipated ‘The Fault in Our Stars: Music From the Motion Picture’ soundtrack, for sale via Atlantic Records.
The official video was shot in Amsterdam and sees Charli explore the same spots as featured in film, an adaptation to the best-selling novel by John Green, set to be one of this year’s biggest blockbusters this year—hitting cinemas nationwide this Friday, June 6th.
The 21 year-old, Charli XCX, is responsible for writing the current #1 smash single, “Fancy” (with Iggy Azalea), which currently tops Billboard’s Hot 100 chart and is leading on Spotify and Shazam. Since its release, Charli has performed “Fancy” at this year’s mtvU Woodie Awards, Billboard Music Awards, Good Morning America, Jimmy Kimmel Live! as well as the recent season finale of Dancing with the Stars.
Charli XCX is quickly proving an unqualified phenomenon with her edgy, yet addictive approach. Since her first critically-acclaimed track, “Nuclear Seasons” in 2011, Charlotte has released a plethora of singles, mixtapes, and psychedelic pop culture collage videos.
Additionally, she penned last year’s summer it-song, “I Love It” recorded by Icona Pop, which has surpassed 6 Million global sales and is certified double platinum in the US certification. Charli is ‘Sesac Writer of the Year’ 2014.
Currently in the studio working on new material for her second album, which is set to release later this year on Neon Gold/Atlantic Records; a follow up to her debut LP, “True Romance” (IAMSOUND), which landed Pitchfork’s “Best New Music” status and one of Rolling Stone’s “hottest synth-pop acts.”
