TOMMY GENESIS DEBUTS CHARLI XCX REMIX OF “100 BAD”

Rising star Tommy Genesis debuts the Charli XCX remix of “100 Bad” today—listen and share here.

Genesis says, “Charli is an amazing artist, she just gushes talent. After we made ‘Bricks’ [for Assassination Nation], I sent her ‘100 Bad’ because the song needed a new powerful force, and she absolutely killed it. I can't wait for you guys to hear it! She really did her thing.”

“100 Bad,” the lead single from Genesis’ highly anticipated debut album releasing this year, is receiving early critical praise with Highsnobiety and Nylon dubbing the song an “anthem.” Tommy recently released a self-directed and edited video for “100 Bad”—watch here.

Speaking on her inspiration behind the video Genesis says, “The ‘100 Bad’ music video turned out brighter than I expected. For the chorus it was either puppies or girls, the tampon scene is sort of my DIY take on Kelis laying in candy - the cash scene is a direct reference to Tracey Emin’s “I Want It All.” The outro is a champagne ejaculation and it’s supposed to make you uncomfortable - it’s a commentary on the male gaze.”

Of half-Swedish, half-Tamil descent, Genesis was born and raised in Vancouver, Canada. Her debut mixtape garnered praise from the likes of Vogue, The FADER, Dazed, Elle, W, PAPER and many more, and she recently returned from a string of North American dates with Dua Lipa. In demand in the fashion world, Genesis recently appeared on the cover of i-D Magazine and has performed for Marc Jacobs, Miu Miu and more.
