Christine & the Queens' New Single 'Girlfriend' Is Our New Summer Bop

Suffo Monclao

French singer-songwriter Christine and the Queens has released the band's latest single, "Girlfriend," which they'd been teasing earlier this week. 

The new song, which takes Christine's signature energetic swagger and infuses it with a new expression of confidence, sex, anger, and lust, comes in two different versions, in English and in French, and features Dâm-Funk. Christine and the Queens have previously done collaborations with some of our faves, like Perfume Genius.

It's the follow up to her 2015 self-titled album, which featured hits like "Tilted" and "iT."

“I initially set out to smash against macho culture and macho men,” says lead singer (real name Héloïse Letissier) in a statement. “I became obsessed with this idea of the macho man, and still being a woman. What does it mean if I’m this figure, and I’m a woman? Does it make me an aberration? Is it joyful?"
