In case you missed her excellent "SuperLove" video shot in Tokyo, Charli XCX has a bit of a crush on the Land of the Rising Sun. For the Japanese edition of her Sucker album, the British star has re-recorded her singles "Boom Clap" and "Break the Rules" with parts sung in Japanese. 

Take a listen to two extended snippets below; Charli dishes out her signature spunk and sass like you've never heard before. And she sounds pretty good!

In keeping with the way most Japanese pop (a.k.a. J-pop) songs are structured, you'll hear a mix of Japanese and English throughout the cuts. Don't worry, though—that addictive "Boom clap!" was left intact.

Add Charli XCX to the growing list of musicians who have shown their major love for Japan. From Avril Lavigne's kawaii-inspired "Hello Kitty" video to Pharrell's anime-tinted "It Girl" visual to Gwen Stefani'Harajuku girl obsession, Britain's newest diva is in good company.

How Do You Think Charli XCX Sounds Singing in Japanese?

She sounds awesome!
She sounds terrible.
Her pronunciation could be better, but it's not bad!
Not terrible nor amazing.
