Charlotte Emma Aitchison, known professionally as Charli XCX, is an English singer and songwriter. Born in Cambridge and raised in Start Hill, Essex, she began posting songs on Myspace in 2008, which led to her discovery by a promoter who invited her to perform at warehouse raves and parties. In 2010, she signed a recording contract with Asylum Records, releasing a series of singles and mixtapes throughout 2011 and 2012.
In 2012, Charli XCX rose to prominence with the Icona Pop collaboration "I Love It"
"Good Ones" is the lead single from Charli XCX's fifth studio album, CRASH.
The song turns away from the more experimental hyperpop-oriented production of her previous releases, returning to the poppier sound present earlier in her career. It was described as a synthwave and electropop song, filled with "hypnotic, throbbing synths" and "punchy production". Lyrically, the song depicts her habit to attract toxic relationships and sabotage healthy ones.
