Cheery pop thing Charli XCX is influenced with Selena Gomez, Miley Cyrus and Carly Rae Jepsen.
Miss XCX worked once again with ‘Nuclear Seasons’ and ‘Stay Away’ producer Ariel Rechtshaid (who also co-wrote Usher’s ‘Climax’) on her new ‘You’re The One’ EP.
When the pair were short on inspiration, they did what we all do and turned to Jeppo.
“We were listening to ‘Call Me Maybe’ on repeat, being like ‘Wow, this is amazing! It gets better every time you listen!’,” she said of their recording sessions.
“And we play Miley Cyrus’s ‘Party in the USA’,” she went on in her Interview interview. “She’s by far the best Disney kid. ‘Party in the USA’ is so great! I listen to it every time I’m landing in the USA. I get hyped up!”
Her love for Disney didn’t at Miley. “I can’t wait for Harmony Korine’s film with Selena Gomez. It’s going to be amazing. It’s insane!,” she added. “I think if I weren’t who I am, I’d probably be a Disney kid.”
