Charli Xcx Celebrates First UK Number One Single With Icona Pop's 'I Love It'

Having written and featured on this week's Official UK #1 single 'I Love It' with Icona Pop, which sold over a staggering 124,000 copies in its first week, Charli XCX is pleased to announce a London headline show at Islington Academy on November 30. Tickets will be available on Friday 5 July from 9am.

It's sure been an exciting week for Charli XCX (born Charli Aitchison), after celebrating her first UK #1 with 'I Love It', which she co-wrote with producers Patrik Berger and Style of Eye. With Charli featuring on the track itself, 'I Love It' has become one of this year's biggest global breakthrough hits. The track has sat on Radio 1's A List for a number of weeks and the official video has now seen a staggering 26 million YouTube views. Furthermore, the song has been used on the new, global Samsung advertising campaign.

To say this year's been a whirlwind for the 20-year-old from Herfordshire would be an understatement. Charli XCX released her debut album True Romance earlier this year to masses of acclaim in the UK and Stateside. Pitchfork gave her debut a glowing 8.3 review, Rolling Stone magazine called her "a 20-year-old goth-pop-rap diva with a flood of hot ideas," while The Sunday Times Culture stated the release was "a belter" and that "countless artists would kill for electro-pop songs as strong as the ones of here." Charli played a sold-out show at Islington's Academy 2 last month and recently announced that she is the face of the new Max Factor Wild Collection - more news on this soon.

Charli is confirmed to play an array of European festivals this summer, which will include Reading & Leeds in August, and she'll hit the road for her biggest US headline tour to date at the end of August.
