Charli XCX may have made the summer of 2017 all about boys, but Rita Ora is stepping into the social season of 2018 to let you know that it’s all about “Girls.”
Like “Boys” before it, “Girls” is an ode to everything there is to love about, well, girls. Red wine, a girlfriend to smoke with, you name it. But unlike “Boys,” where Charli was just busy “thinking” about them, Rita and her crew (Charli XCX, Bebe Rexha, and Cardi B) make sure there’s no room for misinterpretation and sing directly about kissing other girls in the chorus. Miss them with that “they must be really good friends” explanation.
The song maintains a tame, playful nature leading into Cardi’s closing verse, where she takes the clarification even further: “I steal your bitch, have her down with the scissor.” Just in case you thought those kisses were friendly pecks on the cheek. Listen, below.
