Charli XCX was born under the name Charlotte Emma Aitchison in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, England on August 2, 1992. Not much was known about her except she's a child prodigy who composed and performed songs at age fourteen. She attended a nearby Hertfordshire based day and boarding school called Bishops Stortford College for students ages four to eighteen. She dropped out of school at age eighteen only months away from graduation in 2010. Between 2007 and 2010, she was recording songs and releasing rock albums while contemplating dropping out of school. She was signed to Asylum records in 2010 on the same year she dropped out of school months before graduating only to be dropped by the label without recording anything during a lost period (In other words, she probably was too drunk and stoned to do much of anything. People who are sober never have lost periods). After a lost period stretching for 2011, Charli XCX returned to music starting in 2012 and released her first major label release in 2013. Charli XCX continues to record music and tour to support her music to this exact moment of time.
