Charlie XCX Brands the Music Industry “Uncreative”

Charlie says she is now just being asked to repeat her past successes.

T he musician, who found fame with ‘I Love It’ written for Icona Pop, comments that now all anyone wants from her is to simply repeat the winning formula she made the first time around instead of exploring her own creativity. She explains that she wasn’t willing to give in to the pressure and those who she was working with quickly realised that they wouldn’t simply be trying to make the same kind of music. She commented:

”There were definitely some people who wanted me to be a certain way. But I think we all figured out kinda quickly that wasn’t going to be the case. I developed an understanding with my record label early on I would do this my way or no way at all. I learnt that the music industry can become a really uncreative place when you have a hit, because people just want you to replicate that. People behind the scenes can change with the success of a song.”

Although some of her past lyrics might have come off as angry or even violent, Charlie insists she’s not at all able to write music when actually in an angry mood:

”I find it really difficult to write songs if I’m actually angry. If I’m furious it just ends up with loads of screaming.”
