    Honestly, I have to say Charli XCX – Lorde just doesn’t do it for me. Lorde is just boring and unexciting, and her music is too low-key for me. Charli XCX, who I am not a huge fan of either, at least had an awesomely catchy pseudo-punk song in Break the Rules

    I like both Sucker is a really good pop album I love London Queen But Lorde is so different and exciting she’ll have a long career something I can’t say about Charli XCX just yet.

    I am in the minority of this, but “Royals” is an annoying, nonsensical song, but I don’t hate Lorde. Her song “Team” is much stronger in every way and even “Yellow Flicker Beat” is not bad. And Charli XCX is also talented and has some decent discography.

    I will say Charli, but only slightly.

    I think that Lorde is the next Kate Bush. Pure Heroin is a forward-thinking album that managed mainstream success in a way that was totally organic. Even if I don’t totally buy what she has to say, Lorde is going to go very far, indeed.

    With that in mind, Charli XCX is a natural pop artist. True Romance is every bit as intelligent as Pure Heroin, and even comes off as more earnest. Not to mention that Sucker is a pop smorgasbord. For every “Break the Rules,” there is a “Famous” and a “Body of My Own.” If Charli XCX wanted to make something incredibly compelling and profound, I think she could do it just as well as Lorde. 

    In the end though, I come back to Charli XCX more than I come back to Lorde. Songs like “Ribs” and “Tennis Court” are nice enough, but they don’t touch the sticky infectiousness of tracks like “Nuclear Seasons,” “Need Ur Love,” “Doing It,” “So Far Away,” or “Boom Clap.”

    I vote Charli.

    Charli XCX. Maybe I should pick Lorde since she’s the more respected artist of the two (being the youngest SOTY winner in Grammy history is significant and doesn’t occur in a vacuum), but her self-serious goth vibe annoys me, and I didn’t see or hear the unmistakable brilliance of “Royals” either. Charli XCX feels like the bigger pop star, and Lorde the bigger “artist.” I first took notice of Charli XCX on Icona Pop’s great “I Love It.” Then the one-two-three punch of “Break the Rules”/”Fancy”/”Boom Clap” pretty much sealed the deal for me. I’m not completely down on Lorde. “Team” and “Yellow Flicker Beat” certainly prove that she’s no one-hit wonder, so maybe she’ll turn the corner for me in the future. At least in this random match-up, I’ll choose Charli XCX.

    I am going to say Lorde but my guess is XCX is going to be around for a very long time too.

    Lorde by far. Maybe I’m getting old, but I just don’t get a lot of the artists that broke out this year including Charli XCX (Ariana, Iggy, Magic to name a few more). I understand not everyone will get Lorde either, but she’s mysterious and an intriguing lyricists and I can’t wait to see what she does next. 

    Lorde has the potential to be around for a long time with her song writing, and I think she will be. I give Charli XCX two years max before she fades away.
