The second release of You’re On is revealed today with two new episodes from the award-winning and innovative musicians Charli XCX and beabadoobee channeling their authentic vibes that define their unique expressive styles. Continuing to play out in an eclectic series of shorts, the campaign frames a personal view on style, embodying that moment of being daring, free and spontaneous. It’s a vibe, an energy and an attitude. The campaign celebrates one of a kind looks made for those who live the moment: Vinyl and Pool Party.

Her work has influenced wider popular culture and the music industry to set a new example in artistic output. Charli won the Variety Hitmakers award for Innovator of Pop and made the Mercury Prize Album of the Year shortlist for the release of her album titled,‘how I’m feeling now’ which she created from scratch in five weeks from home during the COVID-19 lockdown last year.
But it’s not a solo show – sharing the stage is another shooting star on a meteoric rise whose one of a kind take on style is on every trendmaker’s radar: meet beabadoobee. Always singing to her own tune and receiving critical acclaim for her debut album, Fake It Flowers, beabadoobee is hard to put in a box. Tuning anything from alternative rock to indie, like on her new EP, Our Extended Play she plays to her mood, because real hits come from real life.
