- Christine and the Queens Performs “5 dollars” and Rihanna's “Kiss It Better” on BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge
- French singer-songwriter Christine and the Queens appeared on BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge, where she performed “5 dollars” and Rihanna's “Kiss It Better”
“5 dollars” is included her sophomore album "Chris", which was released back in September. It was written by Héloïse Letissier.
“It’s dealing with some kind of love - the kind you can buy,” Christine said in a press release. "A note for a shag - how surprisingly soothing this can be! The power ratio runs clear, like water in your hands; it becomes a pure gesture of love, of ultimate consent.”
“Kiss It Better” was released by Rihanna in 2016 from her eighth studio album "Anti".
It was written by Teddy Sinclair, Glass John, Jeff Bhasker and Rihanna.
The song is a pop, synth-rock and R&B power ballad, which features influences from the 1980s and 1990s-music ballads. The song's lyrics focus on the story of a broken relationship.
