Last week, we launched our Flopstars podcast taking a look into Carly Rae Jepsen. For the second episode, we're turning our attention to Charli XCX and her two 2017 mixtapes Number 1 Angel and Pop2.

Charli has experienced considerable mainstream success before this, notably with Boom Clap and Iggy Azalea's Fancy but her mixtape season relieved her of mainstream pressure. She delivered two collab-heavy projects and re-wrote the pop rule book along the way, transforming her career into what it is today.

This week, our editor Sam Murphy and Project U's Nic Kelly discuss the significance of these projects for both Charli and the broader pop world. There are also a few games along the way including 'Pornhub review or Charli XCX fan review?'. Subscribe to the podcast now on your favourite platform including Spotify, Apple and Google.
