Charli XCX Gets Sexy In ‘Baby’ Video: Look + Listen

Earlier today (March 1) Charli XCX released her new single “Baby” complete with the music video.

Flanked by a pair of look-alike backup dancers, the avant-garde pop star performs seamless sensual choreography as she sings “I can see it in your eyes/ You’re nervous, but you know just what you want/ If you’re feeling scared, that’s fine/ I’ve got no problem taking full control/ Baby.”

In a recent interview about her new single, the British musician (born Charlotte Emma Aitchison) stated “This song, it was kind of the foundation of the vibe of the album.” “It’s probably the most sexy song I’ve ever made. It’s about sex and sexuality and having good sex and just feeling yourself essentially. I know that that’s the tone. I knew that that was the tone I wanted to carry across for the entire record. This kind of hyper-sexualized, feminine power zone was where I was feeling myself going, and ‘Baby’ was the genesis of this.”

The 29-year old singer/songwriter also spoke about pushing the limits of her dance background with the visual’s sensual choreography, saying, “I think that’s probably why I wanted to challenge myself on the choreo for this song, which was really, really tough and I have so much respect for dancers, professional dancers, anyone who communicates emotion through dance. It is so hard and challenging, but so rewarding.”

Following her lead single “Good Ones,” the star-studded “New Shapes” with Caroline Polachek and Christine and the Queens, and the Rina Sawayama-assisted club banger “Beg for You,” “Baby” is the fourth song from the singer’s upcoming album Crash due March 18 on Atlantic Records.

Having to cancel her previously scheduled stint on Saturday Night Live due to the omicron variant of the coronavirus, Charli XCX will head back to Studio 8H on March 5 to perform as the musical guest on this weekend’s SNL with host Oscar Isaac,
