Pop star Charli XCX played ringleader during her show at Los Angeles' El Rey on Thursday night (March 15), tapping a long list of collaborators and friends to celebrate the release of her Dec. 2017 mixtape Pop 2.
The artists in her rolodex who hit the stage were plenty: Tove Lo, Carly Rae Jepsen, Brooke Candy, Bibi Bourelly, Mykki Blanco and Dorian Electra, as well as PC Music's A.G. Cook who manned the decks throughout the hour-long show. From the back of the venue, musicians including Diplo, Ariel Reichstad and Pentatonix's Scott Hoying watched as Charli swung from song to song, giving her guests stage time of their own as she transitioned from one costume to the next backstage.
Tove Lo set off the evening with their Pop 2 collaboration "Out of My Head," which also features ALMA, welcoming Charli to the festivities and segueing into her solo single "Disco Tits." "What's up!" Charli told the teeming crowd. "This is Pop 2!"
