What else has Charli XCX been up to? Just this week, she released a soon to be Song of the Summer: “Blame It On Your Love” feat. Lizzo. Repurposed from 2017’s Pop 2 mixtape—specifically the strange opus “Track 10“—”Blame It On Your Love” beautifully and accurately epitomizes Charli XCX’s music. A slice of ambient electro-pop revised into mainstream glory. Like most of her experiments, “Blame It On Your Love” is divine and a pop music fan’s dream come to life.
In 2018, Charli XCX served as the opener for Taylor Swift’s “Reputation” Tour. By kicking off the night with her biggest hits such as “I Love It“, “Out Of My Head”, and “Boom Clap“, Charli XCX fortified the tour’s sentiment of girl power, of female-forward entertainment, and unabashed fun.
Now—especially after Charli XCX teased a new album dropping this year—fans are beginning to wonder: Will Charli XCX Tour in 2019?
Since Charli XCX’s goals for 2019 are quite simple: “1. Make an album, 2. Release it“, we think it’s quite likely that “Blame It On Your Love” is the first of several singles we hear from the pop star this Summer and Fall. And, if we get word on a full LP due out soon, it almost certainly means Charli XCX will spend part of 2019 touring.
Charli XCX and Troye Sivan will be hosting their own music festival this Summer, the first annual Go West Fest. Set for June 6th at the Wiltern in Los Angeles, the festival— in partnership with LA’s other Pride celebrations—will feature a lineup a lineup of LGBTQ+ artists and allies including Pussy Riot, Dorian Electra, Quay Dash, Leland and Allie X. Not to mention, Go West Fest will feature sets from both Charli XCX and Troye Sivan.
Keep your eyes and ears open for more Charli XCX updates—especially after Governors Ball, where she is set to perform on Sunday. And don’t miss your chance to attend what could be the first of many Go West Fests, as the LGBTQ+ community continues to be at the forefront of Charli XCX’s artistry and goals.
