Charli XCX has shared "Baby," a new single from her forthcoming fifth studio LP, CRASH, out March 18. It follows a busy few months for the English artist that saw the release of "Good Ones" in September, "New Shapes" featuring Caroline Polacheck and Christine and the Queens in November, "Beg For You" featuring Rina Sawayama in January, and videos for all the above.
The new track pairs an intense intrumental with sultry and confident vocals, "I'ma make you mine" alternating with "I'ma fuck you up" in the song's chorus.
"It's probably the most sexy song I've ever made," Charli told Zane Lowe on his Apple Music 1 radio show. "It's about sex and sexuality and having good sex and just feeling yourself essentially... I knew that that was the tone I wanted to carry across for the entire record. This kind of hyper-sexualized, feminine power zone was where I was feeling myself going, and 'Baby' was the genesis of this."
"Baby" comes with a highly choreographed and super-stylized music video. Watch it below.
