It's been less than a year since Charli XCX's last mixtape Number 1 Angel dropped, but the prolific songwriter and singer has never been one to wait a long time to give her fans more of what they want. The pop chanteuse dropped a new 10-track tape this morning, complete with collaborations with some of the hippest, sexiest, most talented artists out there. Most of the names featured on Pop 2 have yet to break into the mainstream, so here's a quick look at who they are and what makes them worthy of more than just one listen.
Carly Rae Jepsen needs no introduction at this point, and she’s one of the biggest names on the mixtape...except, perhaps, for Charli XCX. Aside from her history-making No. 1 hit, the “Call Me Maybe” singer has become one of the most respected names in bubblegum pop...even if the masses have mistakenly moved on from her particular sound.
