Charli XCX Performs ‘Fancy’ Solo [VIDEO]
Charli XCX took the stage in New York City's Webster Hall on Monday, Oct. 7, where she performed tracks from her upcoming 'Sucker' album. But the rising singer-songwriter gave fans a bigger treat when she performed her collaboration with Iggy Azalea, 'Fancy,' completely by herself.
When an artist performs a track live without their superstar collaborator, usually they will simply play a recording of the absent artist or have one of their backup singers replace the vocals.
But Charli XCX brought out her inner Iggy and rapped Iggy's verses over a recording of Iggy's voice, while her band put their own spin to the 'Fancy' track. Wearing a cheerleading outfit with the word 'sucker' on it, as well as a homecoming queen crown, she owned the song (and the stage), showing us that we have a true superstar in the making.
The British singer-songwriter recently released her second single, 'Break the Rules,' off the 'Sucker' album. Her first single, 'Boom Clap,' has sold over one million copies in the U.S. already.
