Charli XCX began hinting at the collaboration earlier today by painting over her album art wall, which was repainted to spell out ‘Lorde.

The ‘360’ singer went today as far as to share a snippet of New Zealand singer Lorde’s verse on ‘Girl, so confusing’ on her private Instagram account @360_brat.

“She was into my music. She had big hair; I had big hair. She wore black lipstick; I once wore black lipstick. You create these parallels and think, ‘Well, that could have been me.’ But it couldn’t have because we’re completely different people,” Charli said about Lorde in an earlier statement.

Charli, meanwhile, insists they remain good friends. Lorde recently praised her recent album ‘Brat,’ saying, “There is NO ONE like this bitch.”

Many thought there was rumored beef between the two after fans speculated that the song was about the “Royals” singer

In Lorde’s verse, she sings, “Well honestly I was speechless / when I woke up to your voice note / You told me how you’ve been feeling / Let’s work it out on the remix.”

Charli also talked about some of the other tracks off ‘Brat’. She said that ‘Talk Talk’, was inspired by nearly following now-fiancée George Daniel of The 1975 to the bathrooms at the NME Awards.


“We were not together, but we were definitely very into each other,” she explained. “We were at the NME Awards, we were both sat on different tables, and we were like texting each other, but we weren’t hanging out. But we were both looking over at each other – it was very like, one of us would look and the other one would look away, and then just vice versa.

“You know when you just feel like someone is watching you, you can feel a hole burning in the back of your head or something like that,” she continued. “It was very much that moment.”

Meanwhile, Lorde is teasing her fourth album. In an update on her Instagram, she wrote: “If the tools do not exist you are spiritually obliged to create them”, along with variations on the word ‘L4’.

The last album she released was 2021’s ‘Solar Power’, with NME hailing it worthy of five stars: “‘Solar Power’, though, doesn’t feel like a record that will suffer that same fate – this is an album that grows in quiet stature with every listen, new nuggets of wisdom making their way to the surface, peeking through its beautiful instrumentation that weaves a stunning, leafy tapestry.

“Few artists strike gold on every record they create but, for the third time in a row, Lorde has done it again, crafting yet another world-beater.”

Charli has kept many users online hyped with her latest album with many viral clips popping up of not only songs like this but more from the album.
