“Girls” – Rita Ora, Cardi B, Bebe Rexha & Charli XCX

Girls Rita Ora Cardi B Bebe Rexha Charli XCX

The latest in a long line of faux lesbian songs, in the tradition of Katy’s “I Kissed A Girl.” It always stops with kisses, though. We guess the world isn’t ready for the fun pop song about actually diving into the poozle. Cardi B gets close here mentioning scissoring, and that may be the first appearance of that word in a mainstream pop song. Let’s get real, this had SO MUCH potential to be a TOTAL BOP and they pretty much just delivered a 2018 Kidz Bop woke step-child of Lady Marmalade. If you can look past some cringey lyric choices & poor Bebe frantically trying to replace her cowboy hat with a rainbow flag, this song has the potential to grow on you… but we’re pretty sure “Girls” will be forgotten by next week’s New Music Friday. #issaflop
