Rita Ora wants her new track 'Girls' to be an "anthem" about bisexuality and freedom
Rita Ora wants her new track 'Girls' to be a bisexual "anthem".
The 27-year-old singer teamed up with Cardi B, Bebe Rexha and Charli XCX on the brand new track - which features the lines, "Sometimes I just wanna kiss girls, girls, girls" and "I'm open-minded ... I'm 50/50, and I'm never gonna hide it" - and is keen for it to become an anthem for bisexuality and "freedom".
She said: "It really represents freedom and the chance to be what you want to be - and there being no judgment and just living your life as you want to live it. That's what this song represents to me every time I hear it.
"It was really inspired by one of my favourite songs: 'I Kissed a Girl' by Katy Perry. That was the first song anyone heard of Katy Perry's, and it was just such a statement; it was so fun. I wanted to do something that was in that lane."
Asked if she'd like for it to be a bisexual anthem, she added: "Definitely. I definitely want it to feel like it's an anthem to somebody. I want there to be a sense of freedom for anyone who listens to it. So I'll take it!"
Rita insists it "doesn't matter" about her own sexuality and hates the "narrow mindedness" of putting a label on someone's preferences.
Asked if she is bisexual or fluid, she shared to People magazine: "I think the way ... If people look at it like that, it's very narrow-minded, and I don't think that's what this record is. I don't think that that even matters."
