Charli XCX Enlists Rita Ora For New Single ‘Doing It’

Forget the round rump of a certain Kardashian, it’s time for Charli XCX and Rita Ora to have a bash at breaking the internet with their new single ‘Doing It’ and the accompanying cinematic video.

Reminiscent of the Beyoncé and Gaga masterpiece ‘Telephone’, the video was filmed in the desert outside of Los Angeles and was inspired by the iconic movies Thelma & Louise and Natural Born Killers.

Of the video, Charli says “Rita is just someone who I get. She has so much to give as an artist and a person, she knows how to be a real and have a wild time. ‘Doing It’ was something I played to her ages ago and she loved it, so I thought I should definitely get her on it. We shot the video in the middle of the Californian desert – it was amazing. I wanted it to be like this badass Barbie Thelma and Louise-esque video, so we robbed a store with toy guns, rode a bucking bronco and nearly crashed a pink pick-up truck through the desert. Angels, I can’t wait for you to see this video and finally hear Sucker in full.”

Charli XCX will be the main supporting artist on Katy Perry’s European arena tour in February and March, which she’s following up with a string of her own UK headline dates, including one at London’s prestigious Shepherd’s Bush Empire.
