If you woke up in a cold sweat with heart palpitations, don't worry. Donald Trump didn't do a thing again (yet). The rush of feelings surging through you is because pop powerhouse Charli XCX has released her star-studded Pop 2 LP and, yes, it's the one with actual Pop Queen Carly Slay Jepsen on it.

The hit making Brit who has blessed Iggy Azalea and Selena Gomez with tracks and who created the gay mecca video "Boys" earlier this year is back with what we all want: pure, unfiltered pop. After dipping her toe into the SOPHIE-filled waters of experimental pop on this year's Number 1 Angel, XCX has created an LP stuffed full of one-liners ("Go fuck your prototype, I'm an upgrade of your stereotype") and a guest list that includes the aforementioned Carly Rae as well as Tove Lo, Caroline Polachek, Cupcakke, Mykki Blanco, Jay Park, MO, and more.
Think of her as pop music's Santa Claus and this album as her bag of toys. Now go open your presents.
