Shoutout to Dua Lip for this week's Bop. The "IDGAF" goddess passed her driving test and will now be taking on the streets of London. After tweeting a pic, she then brought in the perfect driving Pop song reference..."Vroom Vroom" by Charli XCX.

The all-caps line is the first lyric of the song. Throwing on caps-lock is truly the only way the lyrics can be sung. IF YOU'RE NOT BELTING IT YOU'RE NOT DOING IT RIGHT!!! The track is the definition of a BOP and is the perfect song to throw on to get the party started. Honestly, it's one of my favorite Pop songs of all time. The Vroom Vroom EP follwed her sophomore album Sucker -- one of my top favorite Pop albums ever -- which had a teen-angst, pop-rock sound to it.

What's great about the EP is that it brought this new experimental sound with the collaborators she nabbed that completely changed the direction of her sound. She tapped "Lemonade" producer SOPHIE, who will definitely be a future Bop of the Week, as a co-writer and co-producer for all four songs on the EP. "Secret (Shh)" is another track off it you need to listen too...it was even used in Pretty Little Liars promotion. 

If you have somehow manage to avoid "Vroom Vroom" since 2016 you need to throw it on your playlist ASAP -- as always you'll thank me. Charli is one of Dua's BFFs -- she performed "IDGAF" with her, Alma, Zara Larsson, and MØ -- so naturally she caught wind of the tweet and responded.
