Parts of pop do need a hero right now and it's fair to assume Charles 100 either is that hero or knows them. Her new single Blame It On Your Love, which features Lizzo and premiered tonight, probably isn't enough on its own to turn the tide against some of the more egregious twits taking pop in strange and unpleas­ant new (and old) dir­ec­tions, but the Stargate / AG Cook / Finn Keane-produced wobbler is def­in­itely making things better.

Additional data: when premier­ing this song on Annie Mac's wireless show, Charli said "pants" and imme­di­ately corrected it to "trousers". She's still one of us, readers. Still one of us. (She also said there's an actual, proper, capital-a Album on the way.)
