Cross You Out
by Charli XCX (featuring Sky Ferreira)

  • Over a synthesizer bed, this emotive and vulnerable ballad finds Charli XCX trading verses with Sky Ferreira. The pair explore the personal transformation that occurs after severing ties with someone who was causing them grief.

    I've become someone better
    Yeah, yeah
    Now I look in the mirror
    Feels so good to forget ya

    Charli's longtime collaborator A.G. Cook, who is the head of UK record label PC Music.

    Swedish producer Lotus IV, who also collaborated with Charli on her Christine and the Queens duet "Gone." His other credits include "Stay" by Zedd & Alessia Cara and "Don't Leave Me Alone" by David Guetta.
