Quotes from “Pop 2” artist features
“My favorite thing when songs happen through friendship and likeminded party souls”
“Charli has always been someone I look up to as a writer and boss in the business.
I was so honored she asked me to be a part of her Pop2 mixtape.
A Charli collab has been on my wish list for years now.”
– Carly Rae Jepsen
"I always love to work with Charli.
I'd do that any day.
Her songs and ideas are always great and she lets me be me and do my thing which I (obviously) love.
Besides that, she's a buddy and a great inspiration,
and I'm super happy and proud to once again be featured on her mixtape!"
“Working with Charli is always fun, she always has amazing energy and ALOT OF ENERGY ...
Every time I'm around her and she's gets off the stage I always ask her "how" - how did you just perform 15 songs without looking tired.....
That's how you know she's made for this.
Working with Charli on “Lipgloss” was amazing so when she told me she had another song ready for me I was so down because it's never a hard process with Charli.
She understands my style and I understand hers.
This new joint is next level and I can't wait for the world to hear it.
Overall besides music what I love most about Charli is you can never tell she's famous when you are around her because she has such a humble laid back spirit instead of cocky and nasty attitude like other famous artists.
I'm definitely glad I met her because I met a good friend that's humble like me.”
“Not many people know this but “Out Of My Head” is the very first song we wrote together!
We made 10 different rough song ideas at once but this one turned out sick, so we kept coming back to it..
Charli always makes those crazy hooky choruses..
She’s a legend.
"Working with Charli on this mixtape was a dream.
She is one of the most kind, evolved, and talented artists we have on the planet at the moment.
She's a massive star that never gave up or forgot about how important underground art is.
She is someone who helps to nurture and promote artists who would normally never have that platform and to me that is what makes her so special and that's what makes me pick up the phone when she calls.
She's an artist for the people and a real angel...
I'm so grateful to be a part of this mixtape amongst all of the other AMAZING musicians"
-- Brooke Candy
"“Charli always kills it - I’m so proud to be on this mixtape.
I met her after a Sophie show in LA and she was super sweet.
A couple days after that, we got in touch and she texted me the song, inviting me to jump on it.
The next day I wrote the verse in the studio and sent it to her, and she loved it!”
-- Kim Petras
