Charli XCX has dropped a new track titled “5 In The Morning.” The kind of slick, rubbery pop-trap that Charli’s released a lot of in the past couple of years, the track was released early on Tuesday after being debuted in Charli’s support sets on Taylor Swift’s reputation Tour. While the song sounds very in-line with the many PC Music collaborations she's released in the past few years, "5 In The Morning" is actually produced by The Invisible Men, a production trio responsible for, among other things, Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" and most of Lil Peep's Come Over When You're Sober, Pt. 1. "5 In The Morning" is, to put it plainly, an absolute stomper, with Charli yelling "It's 5 in the morning/I'm going all in/I'm busy ballin'". Go off, Charli!

Listen to “5 In The Morning” below:

“5 In The Morning” is the first new solo track we’ve heard from Charli since the release of her Pop 2 mixtape towards the end of last year. She also jumped on Rita Ora's (highly controversial) new single "Girls", with Cardi B and Bebe Rexha. Earlier today on Twitter, Charli teased that “5 In The Morning” is just the first of a lot of new music she’s set to release this year, writing “i am going to release a lot [of] music this year. and a lot of videos. you’re gonna be so fucking sick of me.” Not bloody likely, Charli!
