Charli XCX is following up her hit gay anthem Boys with a much-needed lesbian version – Girls
Just like Halsey and Lauren Jauregui’s proudly bisexual love song, Strangers, this new tune will involve its singer explicitly glorying in sapphic love.
Charli XCX has collaborated on the track with fellow singers Raye and Rita Ora.
In the first verse, Ora sings: ‘I ain’t one sided, I’m open-minded, I’m fifty-fifty and I’m never gonna hide it’
Meanwhile, in the chorus the pair sing: ‘Sometimes I just wanna kiss girls, girls girls, red wine, I just wanna kiss girls.’
In an interview with The Guardian, Ora discussed the lyrics to what could well be Katy Perry’s I Kissed a Girl for 2017.
In the interview, which claims Girls will be released as a single, Ora said the song is about “having that empowerment of sticking together, etcetera.”
She furthermore added: “The song represents freedom of speech of being able to love whoever you love, no matter what colour, race, sex, size, and being able to celebrate each other as females.”

The pair have previously duetted on the UK top 10 hit Doing It. They performed Girls in May with singer Raye at Radio 1’s Big Weekend.
