Charli XCX taps Sky Ferreira for new song, “Cross You Out”

Another taste of ‘Charli.’

Charli XCX has shared the Sky Ferreira-assisted “Cross You Out,” the latest single from her upcoming third album Charli

“Cross You Out” is a synth pop ballad about “leaving some pretty traumatic people from my past behind me,” the pop star revealed in an Instagram post. Charli opens the song before Ferreira enters with her a dreamy verse of her own, singing, “Melt me down / One piece at a time / I’m sayin’ these eyes were shut / I wasn’t mesmerized, no.” The duo later finally meet at the bridge right before the song ends.

“Sky is brilliant,” Charli told a fan in a tweet about their collaboration. “She has taste and knows what she wants.” Their joint effort is the latest in a series of Charli singles, namely “Gone” with Christine and the Queens and “Blame it on Your Love” featuring Lizzo. The record drops in full September 13 via Atlantic Records.
