This is Charli XCX. Her real name is Charlotte Emma Aitchison.

You might already know her voice from Icona Pop's "I Don't Care."

She's 21 years old, and she's already released her first album.

Get a taste below. She's got a British pop vibe with a dark twist.

She's got a lighter side too! This song's perfect for Summer.

She's kind of like the distant British cousin of Lorde, in the best way.

She's pretty much a British-indie-pop-grunge princess.

She's so fabulous, she can pull off those crazy platform sneakers.

In addition to writing her own stuff, she tore it up with Iggy Azalea in "Fancy."

And she was so good, Iggy brought her to the Billboard Music Awards.

Now, with another new song on the soundtrack for The Fault in Our Stars, she's only getting bigger.

Get it, girl! We're rooting for you!
