After pushing superstar rapper Iggy Azalea to the top of the charts with ‘Fancy‘, singer/songwriter Charli XCX has revealed that she turned down the chance to work with the ‘Beautiful‘ Christina Aguilera.
Her confession below…
Speaking to Pop Justice, she revealed:
I was offered a feature on a Christina Aguilera song and I turned it down. It just wasn’t right. She’s cool, but it just wasn’t right. I have millions of songs that I’m never going to sing but someone else could sing a lot better than I could, so I’d rather give them to other people than have them sitting in my brain, festering away.
Also responsible for Icona Pop‘s ‘I Don’t Care‘, Charli‘s admission comes after rapper YG slammed ‘Fancy’ and songs akin to it during a recent sit down with Hip Hop tastemaker Tim Westwood.
Pointing out the song’s resemblance to songs produced by US producer DJ Mustard, the Def Jam performer rocked the mic with:
And DJ Mustard, that nigga producers is they jocking/ ‘Fancy,’ don’t it sound like he produced that shit?”
