It’s ‘5 In The Morning’ and Charli XCX is still busy ballin’


Someone who enjoyed both a cool adult beverage and the joy of getting out of work once said that “It’s 5 o’clock somewhere.” They were most certainly referring to the p.m. variety, and for good reason — quittin’ time is the best time. Charli XCX is now channeling her best 5 o’clock vibes as well, only she’s rocking the a.m. variety, ballin’ until sunrise with no real signs of a come down. The alt-pop queen dropped “5 In The Morning” today, and it’s her first new sounds since December’s Pop 2 (we’ll look past that “Girls” feature). Charli XCX is currently on tour with Taylor Swift, and they, along with Camila Cabello, play Gillette Stadium in Foxborough over three nights, July 26 to 28 — when Ms. XCX will probably play not too long after 5 in the evening.
