Clean Bandit drops collaboration with Charli XCX and Bhad Bhabie
Clean Bandit has a long list of stars lined up for their sophomore album What Is Love?. After hit singles with Anne-Marie and Sean Paul, Louisa, Zara Larsson, Julia Michaels, Demi Lovato and Marina and the Diamonds, the record also contains a tune with UK pop star Charli XCX and rapper Bhad Bhabie of ‘cash me outside’ Dr. Phil fame. They dropped the track ‘Playboy Style’ days before the album release and the track does deserve some extra attention! The usual upbeat strings and beats sound of Clean Bandit is replaced with a laidback reggae inspired rhythm while Charli XCX sounds fiery as always. Bhad Bhabie delivers the second verse and her vocal style matches surprisingly well with Charli’s. While the Marina and the Diamonds and Luis Fonsi collaboration ‘Baby’ has not yet made waves on the radio (although it is a straight up bop), ‘Playboy Style’ would not be a shoddy choice as next single, because it is catchy as hell. Charli XCX also recently lifted her (lack of) charting curse, by entering top 20 of the UK charts with her Troye Sivan collaboration ‘1999’. Can’t go wrong with a tune as catchy as ‘Playboy Style’!
