Rita and Cardi get a little frisky.
After teasing her newest music video last night (June 5) that follows the controversial single “Girls,” Rita Ora debuted the visual which bares one passionate french kiss with Bronx femcee Cardi B.
While the single and corresponding video features Charlie XCX and Bebe Rexha, the song’s chorus repeats, “Sometimes, I just wanna kiss girls, girls, girls.”
So, staying true to the hook’s and her own lyrics, Cardi goes in for the kill, laying her lips on Rita’s as she raps, “I might French a girl from Great Britain.”
Additionally, the visual credits Helmi for direction and follows the May 11 single release; which sparked quite a buzz, especially from Hayley Kiyoko.
Furthermore, she stated:
“[‘Girls’ has] messaging that is just downright tone-deaf, which does more harm than good for the LGBTQ+ community.”
In addition, Kehlani added:
“[‘Girls’ has] many awkward slurs, quotes, and moments that were like ‘word? word.”
In response, Rita released a statement:
“‘Girls’ was written to represent my truth, and is an accurate account of a very real and honest experience in my life.”
Plus, Cardi added:
“We never try to cause harm or had bad intentions with the song. I personally myself had experiences with other woman, shiieeett with a lot of woman! I though[t] the song was a good song, and I remember my experience.”
