The MTV Movie Awards got a double-dose of Charli XCX. The boisterous British pop singer busted out a performance of her track “Famous,” then stayed onstage to assist Ty Dolla $ign and Tinashe on a performance of their dance banger “Drop That Kitty.”
From Charli’s 2014 album Sucker, tracks like “Boom Clap” and “Break the Rules” have already gotten their share of attention, so Charli and her backing band gave some love to “Famous,” the LP’s latest single. With her peppy, glam-meets-new-wave touring band behind her, Charli went hard for her time in the spotlight, then stepped aside for Ty to break into an abridged version of “Kitty.” Of course, Charli still helped out the crew (which included a group of kitty dancers) in bringing the hook home.
Ty Dolla $ign is expected to release the official music video for “Drop That Kitty” in the coming days, in preparation for his forthcoming debut album.
