5 times that prove Seventeen’s Vernon is a true Charli XCX fan

Prior to this endearing interaction between Seventeen’s Vernon and British singer Charli XCX that happened on Twitter which Carats (Seventeen’s fandom name) completely lost their minds over – for there’s a possible collab on its way – Vernon was really just a big Charli’s Angel (Charli’s fandom name).

But way before this exchange of tweets took place, Carats knew how vocal Vernon is about how much of a fan he is of the famous pop singer and that he was a genuine Charli’s Angel.

Exhibit A: Vernon sings Charli XCX songs in the shower

When Vernon mentioned that he sings Charli XCX songs in the shower in an interview with W Magazine and – surprise! Charli acknowledged him (thanks to Carats mentioning her about it) and knew that the K-pop idol had exceptional taste.

Vernon responded to Charli’s tweet:

Exhibit B: He’s recommended Charli XCX songs to his fans

In another interview with Weverse Magazine, Vernon gave some of his recommendations to Carats and he’s mentioned that he’s been into Charli XCX’s music alongside other artists.

Exhibit C: Vernon often has some of Charli’s songs as his favorite tracks

Vernon is also known as someone who loves sharing his current favorite tracks on his Instagram stories to which Charli’s songs are also brought about.

Some Charli XCX songs he posted in his story include Gone from her 2019 album ‘Charli’ and Forever from her 2020 album ‘how i’m feeling now’.

Exhibit D: Vernon often adds Charli’s songs to Seventeen’s playlists

Every time Seventeen comes back with a new album, they post updated playlists in their Spotify account with all the 13 members’ song recommendations and Vernon never lets himself miss the chance to slip some of Charli’s songs in there – like the true Angel that he is.

Exhibit E: Vernon wrote ‘BANDS BOY,’ which is influenced by Charli’s hyperpop style

Vernon released ‘BANDS BOY,’ a self-written song on Seventeen’s YouTube channel where we could hear the hyperpop influence from the British singer.

As of writing, Vernon and Charli’s collab is yet to be confirmed by the K-pop idol’s agency Pledis Entertainment. But the British pop singer has already made a move to let it happen.

But, of course, Seventeen fans are also trying their best in pleading the agency to pick up the phone and proceed with the collab because aside from the probable existence of it, they solely want to let Vernon know what it feels like to become the most successful Charli XCX fan.
