Stereotypically, girls cry for days around a carton of Ben & Jerry’s and a bunch of cats after breaking up with their significant others, but of course with Charli XCX, typical is never on the agenda.
The “London Queen” has released her latest video exclusively through BuzzFeed. The video is titled “Breaking Up,” but for Charli that isn’t a sad moment. Free of the boredom that she felt with her ex-beau, the song and video is focused around a girl who says that “everything was wrong with [her boyfriend]” and that “breaking up was an easy thing to do.” Ouch. However, in Charli XCX fashion, she doesn’t leave you with a sting without making it better with kisses. The video – outside of its primary message – is a fun, energetic piece resembling something I’ve seen in “Saved By the Bell,” and trust me that’s a good thing.
With bright and funky colors and a rockout session in a bowling alley, Charli’s new video is everything a late ’80s/early ’90s kid could dream of! Check it out below and don’t forget! Charli XCX’s Sucker is out in stores Dec. 15!
