Charli XCX and Rita Ora Go Thelma and Louise For 'Doing It' Video
. (Radio.com) Charli XCX will never make sense if she goes full pop diva. Her slow emergence into the pop music spotlight has been the result of interviews and public appearances where the songwriter does not feign artificiality. In the pop universe, Charli XCX is as real as we are gonna get.
And that's what makes the video for her collaboration with Rita Ora refreshing. With a song that could have received a very traditional push to match its sonics, instead we have Charli dancing like a loon for the camera while looking cross-eyed. We have Charli booty-dancing with a chubby shirtless dude. We, essentially, have Charli XCX being her funny, uninhibited self.
While her ability to craft a hook and her impeccable taste-level for production are the main reason for her success, the video for "Doing It" is a reminder that Charli XCX's personality isn't to be discounted, and it isn't going away.
Check out the video for "Doing It," from Charli XCX's Sucker, here.
