Charli XCX (ft. Troye Sivan) - 1999 | Song Review
I am excited to see Charli and Troye on a song together and it is such a fun song to listen too!
If you are unaware who Charli XCX is – she is a 26-year-old British singer/songwriter. She began her career performing at underground raves as a teenager and then signing with Asylum Records in 2010. She has released 4 albums called True Romance (released in 2013), Sucker (released in 2014), Number 1 Angel and Pop2 (both released in 2017). She has also featured on many popular songs wish Iggy Azalea, Iconic pop and many other.
In October 2018, she released her new singled I titles ‘1999’ with Troye Sivan. The song was inspired by the film 1999 film, The Matix. The song also references Britney Spears and Michael Jackson with lyrics such as ‘My room singing Michael Jackson (hee, hee)’ and ‘I just wanna go back, sing Hit me, baby, one more time’.
This song is such a fun song which does have some ‘old’ instrumentals as well as the classic Charli XCX sound. It is a good throwback song and you could call it their story of 1999. I was born in 1998 and I wish I was around to live the 1990’s as it seems like they were the best years – especially in music. Although, I do love early 2000’s music a lot.
I am going to have to have this on repeat – I love it! I will be dancing around my room whilst singing to this song.
