Summer of 2018’s version of “Bang Bang” is here and it’s a bop.
Rita’s new song is called “Girl’s” and according to the singer, the song QUOTE – “…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.” In her opening verse, Rita celebrates her bisexuality singing – “I am excited, I’m open-minded / I’m 50/50, and I’m never gonna hide i.” Have a listen:
When asked by People magazine what message Rita hopes people take away from the song she said QUOTE – “For me, I always looked at this song as a real gender-fluid freedom record. I never looked at it as, ‘Only females can listen to it’ or ‘Only males can listen to it:’ It’s for everybody. 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.”
Naturally with the chorus being “I just want to kiss girls”, comparisons have been made to Katy Perry’s “I Kissed a Girl” which Rita says is one of her favorite songs. She told the magazine QUOTE – “It was really inspired by one of my favorite 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.”
Rita actually wrote “Girl’s” two years ago with her team but never really thought her peers would want to jump on it so she shelved it. Fast forward to present day and not only did she get her good friend Charli XCX to be on the song, she also scored Bebe Rexha and Cardi B. Cardi was the first to put a verse on the track, followed by Charli and then Bebe. Due to everyone’s differing schedules, they all recorded separately and even shot separately for the upcoming music video. In fact scheduling was so tight that the only time to film Cardi’s part was the day after the Met Gala. Rita got a green screen in her hotel room and they knocked out Cardi’s part in thirty minutes.
