Though she just released her debut True Romance, Charli XCX somehow found time to repay Lindstrom for his remix of her track "You (Ha Ha Ha)" by teaming up with Brit producer TWIN iDoL on this remix of the Norwegian producer's 2012 single "F??r-i-k??l." It's an excellent reinvention - the original's skittery backbeat provides the perfect foundation for Charli's soaring, lovelorn vocals. Check it out.

And you should obviously also check out Charli's cover of The Backstreet Boys' classic "I Want It That Way," performed live at Borderline Music in Chicago:
