[NU-POP] There's a good chance U.K. ingenue Charli XCX gave away her best song. The 20-year-old singer, born Charlotte Aitchison, wrote and appeared on Icona Pop's "I Love It," the shouty kiss-off that's soundtracked Girls episodes and Jersey Shore spinoffs and Dancing With the Stars routines and been downloaded approximately one gabillion times. That tune's massiveness looms over True Romance, Aitchison's much-anticipated, just-released debut. Nothing on the album quite approaches the insta-mosh-pit status of "I Love It," but it's still a winning piece of dyed-black cotton candy, mashing up mall pop of the past and present with darker hues of contemporary "cloud rap" and streaks of EDM. Even without her biggest hit, there's a good chance Charli will steal this show from the overblown pastiche of headliner Marina and the Diamonds.
