English 1.7K March 18, 2022

"Crash" is the fifth studio album by English singer-songwriter Charli XCX, released on 18 March 2022, marking her final album release under her record contract with Atlantic Records. Charli herself announced the album title, release date, and artwork on 4 November 2021, alongside details about her accompanying 2022 tour.

The album consists of four singles - "Good Ones", "New Shapes" featuring Christine and the Queens and Caroline Polachek, "Beg for You" featuring Rina Sawayama, and "Baby" - as well as two promotional singles, "Every Rule" and "Used to Know Me", with the latter released as the fifth single in April 2022.

Unlike her prior work, which was known for its experimental, hyperpop production, "Crash" features a more conventional dance-pop sound. Charli has even dubbed it her "major label sell-out" record. The songs from the album incorporate elements of pop music from the '80s and '90s, with Janet Jackson cited as one of the primary musical influences. The title and artwork of the album were inspired by David Cronenberg's 1996 film of the same name, which is evident in the aesthetic themes explored throughout the record.

Upon release, "Crash" received generally positive reviews from music critics, with many praising the album's vibrant sound and retro sensibility. Commercially, the album has proven to be Charli XCX's most successful to date, topping the charts in Australia, Ireland, and the United Kingdom. It also became her first top ten album in New Zealand and the United States.

Overall, "Crash" marks an exciting evolution in Charli XCX's music career, with its combination of vintage pop influences and modern dance-pop production solidifying her position as one of the most dynamic and innovative artists in the industry.
