Rita Ora hopes new single becomes bisexual anthem

The singer teamed up with Cardi B, Bebe Rexha and Charli XCX for the new single Girls


Rita Ora wants her new single Girls to be a bisexual “anthem”.

The 27-year-old singer dropped her latest track this morning (May 11) and sees her teaming up with Cardi B, Bebe Rexha and Charli XCX.

Girls 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 Rita admitted she was inspired by her own sexuality and wants it to be an anthem for “somebody”.

She told PEOPLE: “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.”

When asked would like her song to be a bisexual anthem, the singer admitted she wants people to feel a “sense of freedom” when listening to it.

“Definitely,” she said. “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.”

Although she said she wants the song to be a bisexual anthem, Rita said it “doesn’t matter” about her own sexuality and hates putting a label on someone’s sexual preferences.

She said: “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 even matters.”
