Early Life and Education
Charli XCX, whose real name is Charlotte Emma Aitchison, was born on August 2, 1992 in Cambridge, England and raised in Start Hill, Essex. She is the only child of Shameera, who is Gujarati Indian, and Jon, who is Scottish. Aitchison was educated at Bishop’s Stortford College. Inspired by such pop artists as Britney Spears and the Spice Girls, she started writing her own songs when she was 14. Aitchison later attended the UCL Slade School of Fine Art, but dropped out during her second year.
At the age of 14, Aitchison persuaded her parents to grant her a loan so she could record her first album. In early 2008, she began posting songs from the album on her Myspace page. This drew the attention of a promoter who ran illegal warehouse raves and parties in London, who asked her to perform. It was during this time that Aitchison began using the stage name Charli XCX, which had been her MSN Messenger display name as a kid. Despite the illegality of her gigs, her parents supported her and even attended some raves with her.
In 2010, Charli XCX signed with Asylum Records. She went on to release a number of singles and mixtapes over the subsequent years, attracting the attention of the music website Pitchfork. Charli XCX had her big break in 2012 as a featured artist on the song “I Love It,” by the Swedish duo Icona Pop. The song became an international sensation, reaching number one in the UK and number seven on the US Billboard Hot 100.
