“Brat”: album that painted the web green is the best rated of 2024

“Brat”, Charli XCX’s new album that flooded social media with green memes, is the best-rated album released in 2024 on Metacritic. The site brings together reviews made by the main specialized vehicles, such as Pitchfork and Rolling Stone.

The album, released last Friday (7), has already accumulated 23 reviews and has an average of 95 points, the highest recorded among 2024 releases on the portal. “Cowboy Carter”, by Beyoncé, comes in second place with 91; “Funeral Of Justice”, by Mdou Moctar, closes the podium with 90.

“Brat” ranks as the 16th best album of all time on Metacritic, behind classics like “DAMN” and “To Pimp A Butterfly”, by Kendrick Lamar.

What do the reviews say?

The Guardian’s review, which gave top marks to the British singer’s album, praises the compositions and the experimental tone of Charli’s album, which, according to the text, does not surrender to the usual strategies of pop music that fears addressing the same themes .

“Most of your fellow superstars are busy making unreliable songs about how hard it is to be famous. However, Charli never lost sight of how difficult it is to be human.”

Rolling Stone, which gave one of the worst reviews of the album, giving it four out of five possible stars, highlights the intersection of dance beats with lyrics that instigate deep reflections and show a mental confusion typical of the dance floor.

“On her sixth album, she stays out until the early hours and tries harder than ever. While she’s twirling on the dance floor, she’s also twirling in her head, delving deep into the kinds of insecurities and fears in store for the comeback the next morning.

“Brat” dominated social media

The release of the album is the culmination of a publicity campaign led by the singer’s Brazilian fans, who filled social networks such as X, formerly Twitter, and Instagram with references to the visual identity of “BRAT”.

The cover of the new album is simple, marked by a color that became known as “brat green” and filled people’s timelines with memes and Instagram notes with squares in the color of the album.

In addition to promoting “Brat” using small trucks covered with LEDs in cities like London and Paris, the singer also changed all of her album covers to the visual identity of the new album, keeping only the symbolic color of each of them.

Charli XCX and Brazil

In addition to performing in Brazil on June 22, in São Paulo, Charli also inserted a funk beat into “Brat”. The rhythm is present in the song “Everything is Romantic”.

The British singer’s show will be in the “DJ Set” format, in which the artist’s pre-recorded songs are mixed. Tickets are already sold out.
