To build the hype for the release of her new single “Gone,” Charli XCX has teased fans that she has seen the edit for the music video by sharing a photo of herself in a bikini.
Christine and the Queens, who features on the track, tweeted a photo of her on-set, saying that they might have a “banger” on their hands.
“Hello @charli_xcx? Just calling from my water bottle to tell you we might have a banger on our hands. Good, we just wrapped a video for it. K bai,” she shared.
XCX then quote-tweeted her in excitement.
“JUST SAW THE FIRST EDIT OF THE GONE VIDEO & ITS SO GOOD OMG,” the “Break The Rules” singer replied.
Charli then took to another social media platform to tell her 3.2 million Instagram followers about the video and that she hasn’t got anything else to post, minus the sultry, exotic bikini photo she attached.
“Gone” is taken from XCX’s third upcoming studio album, Charli. The record is set to be released on September 13. It contains 15 tracks and a total of 14 collaborations.
