Charli XCX quietly released a four-track EP Vroom Vroom in February, and now she’s shared the video for the album’s title track. She goes from 0 to 60 in the car-themed video, which shows off the singer in several skintight outfits.
Charli XCX is a known fan of the female artists who came before her, and she channels Britney Spears and Beyoncé for her new video. Proving that, indeed, you can’t catch her, Charli XCX dons a sleek black leather jumpsuit, a revealing white bikini top and a netted red bikini number throughout the video. Her costumes have a touch of Britney Spears about them, mostly of that pop star’s “Oops, I Did It Again” era.
What she’s wearing reflects the song’s hypersexualized lyrics: “Left a Lamborghini, roll up in a blue bikini/ B—— on the beaches, lookin’ super cute and freaky/ All my friends are princesses, we keep it whipped and creamy/ Ice cubes on our tongues because we like to keep it freezy.”
Shot mostly in black and white, Charli XCX also channels Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)” during her song’s chorus when she breaks into choreography with a group of dancers. The video is equally sleek and provocative. Watch below:
