- Recently, she contributed "Girls" to Rita Ora, also Charli XCX performed as vocals along with Cardi B and Bebe Rexha on the track.
But the LGBTQ community criticised the song as "fueled the male gaze while marginalizing the idea of women loving women."
She told Rolling Stone;
"I've known Rita for a very long time in this particular journey and in this particular story in her life. I would never want to take anyone's space in pop music, but Rita is somebody I've known for a very long time who has had queer experiences and [I felt] that perhaps this is a safe space for me to be on this record. I apologize to any people I've offended by that."
