Charli XCX’s latest single, ‘1999’ which features one of our ‘FAV POP LEGENDS’ Troye Sivan, will be released this Friday 5th October. The single’s announcement comes as no surprise to die-hard XCX fans as they have been expecting it’s release for quite some time now. Charli XCX has been releasing new singles monthly since May 2018 and when there was no single released in August, fans started to question XCX on her next release.
She quickly assured fans that the ‘monthly music drop’ was going to be later than expected. This was later revealed as a feature on ‘100 Bad’, a single by Tommy Genesis. She also told fans that ‘something very special’ was coming in a few weeks time. A rumoured single, ‘1999’ started to make the rounds on Twitter. It was then rumoured to feature Troye Sivan, both of which have now been confirmed by XCX herself.
