Cardi B Says Rita Ora Collab "Girls" Reflects Her Own Experiences

Cardi B Responds To The Backlash Against Her Rita Ora Collaboration, 'Girls'

However, the track has been met with criticism from artists from the LGBTQ community, with Hayley Kiyoko branding the song as "just downright tone-deaf".

Cardi isn't the first artist to apologize for how "Girls" was received.

Cardi concluded with an apology for any time she may have used offensive language toward the LGBTQ+ community.

During an interview with People, Rita - who has been dating songwriter Andrew Watt for over a year - was asked about whether the song is linked to her own sexuality.

It hasn't been easy to do so in the mainstream music world, either, as she explained to Elle's Estelle Tang past year.

She said: 'I knew people were going to look into it like that. "There's only allowed to be one?" The singer also revealed that she has had same-sex relationships. "I don't think that that even matters".

Ora took to Twitter on Monday to formally apologize for the song's lyrics. This type of message is unsafe because it completely belittles and invalidates the very pure feelings of an entire community. "I feel I have a responsibility to protect that whenever possible".

"Hate to be THAT guy but there were many awkward slurs, quotes, and moments that were like 'word? word, '" she wrote. "I don't need to drink wine to kiss girls; I've loved women my entire life", she tweeted, referencing a particular lyric of the song.

Ora's new song, however, isn't sitting well with everyone.

The blonde beauty added: 'I have had romantic relationships with women and men throughout my life and this is my personal journey'.

Throughout the song, Ora also references drug and alcohol use with lyrics such as "we rolling J's, kush loving".

She added, "I personally myself had experiences with other woman, with a lot of woman!"
