Charli XCX shows off her Japanese while singing her hit songs “Boom Clap” and “Break the Rules” in snippets for the Japanese version of her latest album Sucker!
The 22-year-old English singer recorded the songs with the help of J-Pop singer and model Yasuda Rei, who wrote the lyrics for the Japanese versions.
“I’d never been to Japan before, so it was kind of crazy,” Charli recently shared to Stereogum about the country, where she filmed her 2013 single “SuperLove,” which didn’t make it on the English version of Sucker Punch. “We were only there for, like, two days…. The police shut the video shoot down, which made me feel so badass. I was like, ‘Whoa, I’m like Kesha or something….’ It was kind of crazy, but it was great.”
