Charli XCX

Kate Mossman follows pop star Charli XCX into the studio and onto the stage.

Charli XCX has been the mastermind behind songs for the likes of Rita Ora, David Guetta, Icona Pop, Iggy Azalea, Camilla Cabello, all while being a well respected artist in her own right, with her own devoted fan base: her 'Angels'.

Kate Mossman explores Charli XCX's duality as both a songwriter and a performer with exclusive behind-the-scenes access. Follow Charli into the studio to hear all about her creative process, travel with her to Wembley stadium where she supports Taylor Swift on her Reputation tour, hear exclusive new music in a feedback session she hosts with her fans and experience a rare headline show in London for one of Charli's Pop 2 shows.

You'll get to know Charli more personally and hear her discuss never before talked about topics like her favourite part of her studio process and what it means to her. Charli speaks honestly and articulately about how she combats loneliness on the road and what parts of her work are her least favourite.

Produced by Zoë Marcuzzi, A We Are Grape production for BBC World Service.
