Rita Ora - 'Girls' (Feat. Cardi B, Bebe Rexha & Charli XCX)

New Music: Rita Ora feat. Cardi B, Bebe Rexha, & Charli XCX – 'Girls' New Music: Rita Ora – 'Girls' (Feat. Cardi B, Bebe Rexha & Charli XCX)

Rita Ora's comeback track "Girls" features the trio of wonderful women - Bebe Rexha, 28, Charli XCX, 25, and the hip hop queen Cardi B, 25.

Less than 24 hours after the song hit streaming services, queer artist Hayley Kiyoko released a statement on social media that referred to the song as "tone-deaf" and regressive.

Rita Ora sings about being "fifty fifty" when it comes to her sexuality on new song Girls - but off the record (literally) she isn't so sure.

Kiyoko wrote: "This type of messaging is unsafe because it completely belittles and invalidates the very pure feelings of an entire community". What I love about Ora's song is the idea that liking women isn't bold or wild or courageous, it just is; loving girls is commonplace, fun, and something to be celebrated, not stashed away or justified.

The asteroid named 2004 EW95 has been somehow spewed out in the icy region of the Kuiper Belt which is very unlikely. However, even with the impressive light-collecting power of the VLT, 2004 EW95 was still hard to observe.


And she added that she "definitely" wants Girls to be considered a bisexual anthem, saying: 'I definitely want it to feel like it's an anthem to somebody. That's gonna happen this summer, I know it! "That's just how it's gonna be". "I don't think that that even matters". I know this wasn't the intention of the artists on the song, but it's the lack of consideration behind these lyrics that really get me.

"These past few years I've been so inspired by all the strong women I've seen who aren't afraid to be themselves", Rita told RapUp. It really is just about that. It's sexy and seductive and flirty, detailing a girl-on-girl sexual encounter, but also speaks to the sweetness of lying in bed together all night, which I found pretty true to form as a woman who loves women-or just a person who has sex.

The topic of girl-on-girl has always been a staple of pop music, but as more openly queer artists make their mark on the industry, the more their perspective complicates the notion of singing about kissing a girl, and liking it, just for the titillation factor. In an interview with People magazine, the singer confirmed that "Girls" is about embracing gender fluidity and loving whomever you want on your own terms.

Speaking about the track, Rita said: "I wrote this song, like, two years ago in London with my team, and I actually didn't think that much of it".
