Charli XCX announced yesterday that her free mixtape, Number 1 Angel, would finally premiere this Friday, March 10, and made an appearance on Mistajam's BBC Radio 1 show to share three new songs that underlined her official transition out of Sucker's '90s brat-pop sound.
Today, the Brit revealed her project's full tracklisting, which features everyone from MO to CupcakKe and Abra. Most noteworthy, however, is the triumphant return of electro Myspace icon Uffie, whose Ed Banger Records single, "Pop the Glock" was a defining soundtrack for 2006. The artist released her full-length album, Sex Dreams and Denim Jeans, in 2010, but has since been silent, reportedly prepping a comeback with major producers, such as Benny Blanco.
On Number 1 Angel, Uffie lends her voice to "Babygirl," an '80s-sounding bubblegum cut that recalls the earlier tunes of Prince. "Open the top, pop, drink in my glass; here come the cop cops better drink fast," Uffie says in-between Charli's smooth, sunny vocals. "I'll be your babygirl," the Vroom Vroom singer sings repeatedly above cutsey synths and a nostalgic bassline. Check out Number 1 Angel's full tracklisting, below.
