Definition Friends and Confusion

The original Charli XCX track is about overthinking, insecurity and a difficult frenemy relationship with another singer.

Her response is to cite a Lorde lyric from “Team” (“I’m kinda over being told to throw my hands up in the air”), then to compare her style as an artist to his, “You’re all about writing poems but I’m about throwing parties / I think that you should come to my party and put your hands up,…” These lines point out singularity and similaralties between the two artists.
