You’re The One EP

Jun 2012

Charli releases the EP You’re The One.

I was like, “No, this is who I want to be. I don’t want to be a pop star. I want to be a nursery-rhyme star!” … When I first started I was just listening to Ed Banger stuff [French Electro Record Label]:  Uffie, Justice, Feadz. I wanted to white rap like Uffie. I still love Uffie. Then I started listening to other girls who rap like when Blondie raps in “Rapture.” I was like “Wow, this is pretty cool, too,” because they are basically pop songs, so I thought, “Cool, maybe I can do it a different way.”
