May 11 (UPI) — Rita Ora’s new single “Girls” featuring Cardi B, Charli XCX and Bebe Rexha hints at bisexuality.
The track, released Friday, features Ora singing “I am excited, I’m open-minded / I’m 50/50, and I’m never gonna hide it / You should know,” she sings.
“I knew people were going to look into it like that. I definitely said it because I can — and it was one of those things where, if I was 50/50…I’m not saying I’m ’70/30.’ … ‘I’m 50/50, and I’m not gonna hide it.’ I’m not hiding what I am, who I am, if I wanna do this, if I wanna do that. That’s just how it’s gonna be,” Ora said when asked about the lyrics by People magazine.
“For me and my career, this is definitely the most open-booked I’ve ever been, if that’s a word. I’m definitely an open book with this record, and I’m really proud of the support I’ve got with my fellow collaborators,” she continued.
The upbeat song also features a chorus about kissing women. “Sometimes, I just wanna kiss girls, girls, girls/ Red wine, I just wanna kiss girls, girls, girls,” Ora sings.
Ora, on Instagram, shared snippets from the song and hinted at a forthcoming music video for the track alongside a photo of herself on-set with Cardi B.
