The 22-year-old singer has been in the game for nearly a decade; she started playing club gigs around the U.K. at 14. Last year, she put out a great album and co-wrote Icona Pop’s chart-storming “I Love It.” In 2014, she co-wrote and appeared on Iggy Azalea’s No. 1 hit “Fancy.”

3. Now, it’s safe to say we can all stop calling her a “pop star-in-waiting.”

In August, Charli’s solo “Fancy” follow-up single “Boom Clap” climbed to No. 10 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. Finally, she’s as huge as her hooks.

5. On the heels of all that success, Charli XCX will release her sophomore album this fall. Brilliantly titled Sucker, it’s out Oct. 21 via Neon Gold/Atlantic Records.

7. It’s a shout-along, ~forget school, let’s dance~ anthem, pink and pop and powerful and punk at the same damn time. The song’s badass attitude and bass guitar recall Blur’s 1997 smash “Song 2.”

“The song is inspired by a lot of the things I was listening to whilst in Sweden at the end of last year,” Charli told BuzzFeed. “I spent about a month making a punk record and covering songs by Swedish punk bands like Snuffed By The Yakuza and stuff. This song was written when I came out of the other side of that punk phase and translated it into something more pop. Obviously, it’s about not giving a fuck.”

8. And soon, it seems, Charli will be “not giving a fuck” in a “Break The Rules” video:
