Charli XCX has released a tribute to her late friend and collaborator SOPHIE, the influential producer who recently passed away at the age of 34. “I find it really difficult to sum up the special connection I had with such an amazing person who completely changed my life.” Charli wrote. “There are so many memories, so many small details, so many different views and incredible feelings and stories. It is impossible to sum up the journey I took with Sophie. “

The statement concludes: “She taught me so much about myself without even realizing it. I wish I had told her more about how special she was, not just her music, but her as a person. I love you and I will never forget you Sophie. “Read the full statement below.

The first notable collaboration between Charli and SOPHIE was the pop singer’s Vroom Vroom EP, released in 2016. This release set the tone for the following collaborations: Together they made songs for Number 1 Angel (“Roll With Me”, “Lipgloss”). and Pop 2 (“Out of My Head”).
