Having crafted Icona Pop's "I Love It", Charli XCX is at the forefront of the girl-pop movement.

13 Nov 2013: Irving Plaza — New York

Unlike the show I saw at Irving Plaza last week, Charli XCX knew took full advantage of the space with her oversized-pop sound. With just one album, Charli couldn’t afford to hold back the punches as she fronted an all-girl band.

She also knew she had to do her own rendition of the song “I Love It”, that she shared with Icona Pop, making them a star. She encouraged the audience in her announcement, “This is my first hit and I know you all know the words! I wanna hear you fucking sing!”. And the crowd obliged, bouncing with the same high energy Charli herself brought to the stage, jumping and waving her hair. She also performed a cover of the ‘80s pop hit, “I Want Candy”, one of her current favorite songs she said, alongside the lead singer from Kitten (who along with LIZ had opened for her). Check out the photos and video below.
