Rita Ora’s new single ‘Girls’ has been rumoured for a couple of months with the lineup of featured artists being mixed up all the time even to the point that it wasn’t clear if the tracks would remain unreleased forever. Fortunately, Rita’s finally made it official yesterday when she unveiled the artwork for the song featuring Cardi B, Bebe Rexha and Charli XCX.
Initially, Rita debuted an old version ‘Girls’ live at the BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend on May 28, 2017 with fellow British artists, Charli XCX and RAYE, who hasn’t been included in the final version.
The single has been finally released today, and it does sound like a huge trashy pop bop ready to be enjoyed. “Sometimes I just wanna kiss girls, girls, girls,” the catchy poppy hook goes. “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 said in a recent statement.
“For those who aren’t afraid to rule the world, this is our anthem” Rita continues to explain. “A celebration of love. And of course, thank you to all the fellow boss women who so kindly graced this song with me – each representing who they are and where they are from. I hope you dance your socks off with us!”
