Song of the Week (22nd December): Break The Rules // Charli XCX

As we round off 2014, we can both look back on the year in music and forward to what’ll come in the next. One artist who can do both of these things with a massive grin on her face is popstar Charli XCX. Between riding the fame wave after featuring on Iggy Azalea’s summer smash ‘Fancy’, earning her first solo Billboard Top 10 with ‘Boom Clap’, and dropping her second album Sucker in the US just last week, Charli XCX seems to be poised to be 2015’s new pop it-girl.

So, it’s appropriate for our current Song of the Week to be one of Sucker’s debut singles, ‘Break The Rules’. The track is lyrically in the same vein as much of Charli’s other songs – all about going out and going hard, building to the boisterous “I don’t want to go to school / I just want to break the rules” chorus that begs to be shouted on the dancefloor. A fun loving track you’re sure to hear plenty of in the next year.
