Charli XCX Is Our Favorite Electropop Teen Idol in Her "What I Like" Video

Charli XCX already gets a free pass in our book because she guested on Icona Pop's massive, addictive hit, "I Love It." But if she keeps putting out icy electro jams like her latest, "What I Like," she doesn't even need the freebie.

The Hertfordshire native is proving to be a real heavy hitter in the world of electro-pop, which is great news for England because those Swedes are fighting to win. (See: Robyn, Lykke Li, The Knife, Elliphant.) Also, automatic bonus points to Charli for looking attractive underwater. That's almost as impossible as becoming a pop star.

Charli XCX's debut studio album, True Romance, is due out April 15.
