Love is in the air, and it's not just a catchy lyric for pop sensation Charli XCX and indie-pop drummer George Daniel of The 1975. The couple recently announced their engagement, and it's safe to say they're ready to shout it from the rooftops.
The exciting news came to light when Charli, 31, sneakily revealed her dazzling engagement ring on her private Instagram on Monday, only to later share the joyous moment with the world on her public account. The "Speed Drive" singer, in her characteristic casual style, posted a selfie proudly displaying her hand adorned with a sparkling diamond. In a more official announcement, she shared a series of photos featuring the couple's warm embrace and a delightful tray of tea, complete with an engagement ring box, hinting at the sweet proposal by the indie-pop artist and producer.
In a cheeky caption, Charli exclaimed, "charli xcx and george daniel f---ing for life!!!" It seems the couple is not only committed to each other but also unapologetically vocal about their love. Even The 1975's frontman, Matty Healy, couldn't hold back his emotions, commenting on the engagement photos with a heartfelt "I cry 🥺."
The love story between Charli XCX and George Daniel began to unfold in 2021 during their collaboration on the single "Spinning," which featured Charli XCX, The 1975, and No Rome. While the exact moment their creative partnership turned romantic remains a mystery, the couple made their relationship public in May 2022, sharing vacation snapshots on Instagram.
Since then, the pair has continued to blend their musical talents, with George Daniel contributing to several tracks on Charli XCX's 2022 album, "Crash." Their collaboration extended to the soundtrack of the 2022 A24 horror film "Bodies Bodies Bodies" and the remix of Caroline Polachek’s “Welcome to My Island” in early 2023. Daniel also played a key role as a co-producer and songwriter on Charli XCX's song with Sam Smith, "In the City."
The couple's journey has been documented through social media posts and interviews, offering glimpses into their adorable moments. George Daniel's Instagram debut with Charli XCX came in September 2022, coinciding with the release of The 1975's single "I’m in Love with You." Charli, on the other hand, has shared snapshots of their travels, studio sessions, and even fun TikToks featuring their collaborative projects.
In a May 2023 interview with The Sun, Charli XCX expressed how her relationship with George Daniel has influenced her creative process. She shared, “Now that I’m in a relationship with another musician, he’s influenced me a lot with his process and how he and his band work. It’s really different from how I work, and that has definitely influenced me and my process. I used to be very, ‘Quick, quick, quick, album a month, let’s go.’ Now I’m like, ‘Oh, maybe it’s cool to take some time and live in the music that you create.’ My process is definitely evolving.”
The pop star also gushed about her love for George in a February 2023 interview with the Sydney Morning Herald. Discussing their collaboration on "Welcome to My Island (Remix)," Charli revealed her desire for a family with George. "I want to be wifed up, I want to have a big fat belly with a baby in it. I don’t really want to live in the countryside, that’s the only lie in that because I love cities. But yeah, I’m just so in love right now, and I think I’d be a really hot mum… so why not just put it all into a Caroline Polachek remix, you know?”
As Charli XCX and George Daniel embark on this exciting chapter of their lives, fans can undoubtedly expect more collaborations and, of course, a celebration of love that promises to be as bold and vibrant as the couple themselves. The journey from the studio to the wedding aisle is sure to be a harmonious one for these two musical soulmates.
