Pop 2 delivers exactly what the title says — Pop. In a year full of new music releases this mixtape has a sound all of its own. Pop 2 radically different from her first mixtape, which was much more radio friendly, and is truly something that only Charli could’ve conceived.
You might not be familiar with many of the featured artists, but lots of those names you need to familiarize yourself with…like Kim Petras and ALMA. In an interview with Vulture, the “Boys” songstress talked about the extensive features list, saying, “That’s why this mixtape is so overflowing with collaborations because A.G. and I said, “F*** it, let’s do as many as we can without imploding.”
This mixtape goes from 0 to 100 real quick. The heavy use of auto-tune gives each track its own distinctive flair, and paired with Charli XCX’s ability to write a pop hook it’s incredible. The party influence she always talks about is alive and well from front-to-back.
Pop 2 is a MUST listen — start with these tracks.
