Charli XCX

Charli XCX has graced her fans with a brand new collaboration with Sam Smith, aptly titled “In The City,” released as a standalone single. The track kicks off with an enticing electronic loop, complemented by Charli’s vocals, immediately setting the mood for a night of dancing under the sparkling lights of the club. As Charli sings, “I’m focused in on a moment / All the lights and diamonds in the sky.”

This collaboration is like a match made in heaven, radiating an infectious energy and shimmering pop brilliance.

According to Charli, “In The City” is about discovering the people you truly connect with during wild nights out and revelry in enchanting places. It’s a celebration of acceptance, the grandeur of being embraced within queer spaces, and the unforgettable individuals you meet on such occasions.

This exciting collaboration had been anticipated by many fans who suspected that Charli and Sam Smith would work together. Hints of the collaboration were dropped earlier in the summer when Charli teased fans in her “Speed Drive” music video, which featured a call from Smith. Upon the official announcement of their song, Charli also posted an emotional video defending Sam Smith against online bullying.

As an added treat, the press release for the single mentions that there will be additional remixes of “In The City” dropping on October 28, just in time to fuel your Halloween parties.
