    Summary quotation from Wikipedia:

    “Boom Clap” is a song by British recording artist Charli XCX, released as the first single from the soundtrack album of The Fault in Our Stars (2014).

    The single peaked at number six on the UK Singles Chart, as well as peaking inside the top ten of the charts in the United States, the Republic of Ireland, Australia and New Zealand and the top twenty of the charts in Canada.

Composition and promotion

    The song is written by Charlotte Aitchison, Fredrik Berger, Patrik Berger, Stefan Gräslund. The song was initially written during writing sessions for XCX’s debut album, True Romance, then later offered to singer and actress Hilary Duff for her new album. Once Duff’s people declined the offer, XCX decided to use the song as her contribution to The Fault in Our Stars motion picture soundtrack. In a later interview, Duff said she had no idea that XCX had offered the song to her people and would have accepted the song if she had known.

    XCX performed the song for the first time on The Fault in Our Stars Live Stream Event in 14 May 2014.

Music video

    The accompanying music video for “Boom Clap”, directed by Sing J. Lee, was filmed in Amsterdam and premiered on 2 June 2014. It features a new master of the song with slightly different production, which was released as the main single version in the UK.

Critical reception

    4Music said the song was “infectious” and a “feelgood track [which] contrasts softly-sung verses with a big attitude-packed chorus” resulting in a song that was “catchier than the clap”.

Commercial performance

    The song debuted at number 62 on the Billboard Hot 100 on the week dated 21 June 2014, becoming XCX’s first entry as a lead artist. On 28 June 2014, the song jumped to number 29, becoming her first top-forty hit as a lead artist. To date, the song has sold more 500,000 copies in the United States. The song has currently peaked at number 10, becoming her third top 10 in United States and her first top 10 as lead artist.

Live performances

    Charli is scheduled to perform the song at the 31st annual MTV Video Music Awards’ Pre-show, on August 24, 2014.
