Never one to limit her horizons, Charli XCX prepped for the release of her new album ‘Sucker’ with yet another cover, this time of the Deee-lite mega-hit ‘Groove Is In the Heart’ for Target’s latest ad campaign.

The minute-long snippet of the song was produced by Questlove of soul-hop group The Roots, and also feaures a dash of guest vocals from Black Thought of that very same group.

Charli’s smirking vocal lends itself perfectly to that earworm chorus hook – check out the TV spot below for evidence.

Can we put in a request for Lil Chris’ ‘Checkin’ It Out’ to be her next cover yet?
