Brooke Candy has returned with XXXTC,” featuring Charli XCX and Maliibu Miitch, the first single from her forthcoming debut album, Sexorcism.
The “female-empowering stripper anthem,” as Candy puts it, features the ladies flowing over a sultry, bass-heavy beat. Candy opens the track with the catchy chorus before passing the torch over to Miitch for a raunchy verse: “’Cause when I’m pussy poppin’ on a handstand / It drives these n***as crazy / And when I’m in the town, runnin’ round town / Bitches know not to play me.”
Charli jumps on the track near the end, dropping a reference to Christina Aguilera’s Stripped era in the process. “Pop pills, Ibiza / Brooke dirrty, I call her Christina / Maliibu on the East Coast / Empire State everybody wanna see her, yeah,” she raps.
“I’m so excited to be dropping my first single from Sexorcism,” Candy said in a press release. “The album was put together in four days and ‘XXXTC’ was the first song that was made. To us, it was the most special and the most fun. It’s a female-empowering stripper anthem about owning your own sexuality, but I think it has universal appeal. Hopefully everyone thinks so, too.”
Sexorcism, due out later this year, is the follow-up to Candy’s 2014 EP, Opulence. On the other hand, “XXXTC” is the latest in a slew of collaborations from Charli XCX, following “Blame it on Your Love” with Lizzo and “Dream Glow” with BTS.
