Charli XCX Debuts New Song '5 In The Morning'

In related news, Charli XCX is currently on tour with Taylor Swift and Camila Cabello. During Swift's opening night, Charli XCX performed a new song. By the looks of it, she will sing the same track at next month's shows.

"This is a brand-new song. I've never played it before ever! It's [called] '5 In the Morning," said Charli XCX before her performance.

'Girls' Criticized

The 25-year-old singer also made headlines recently after she collaborated with Rita Ora, Cardi B, and Bebe Rexha on the song "Girls." Despite the track's success, "Girls" was criticized for its tone-deaf lyrics about bisexuality.

Several artists also took offense to the track. Hayley Kiyoko described "Girls" as a track that fuels the male gaze and marginalizes the idea of women loving women. Kehlani said that the song featured too many awkward slurs, quotes, and moments that may not be good for the LGBTQ community.

Rita Ora Apologizes For 'Girls' Backlash

Following the backlash, Ora responded to the criticisms and apologized to anyone that may have been offended by the lyrics of the song.

"'Girls' was written to represent my truth and is an accurate account of a very real and honest experience in my life... I am sorry how I expressed myself in my song has hurt anyone," said Ora.

The Fifty Shades of Freed star also confirmed that she had romantic relationships with both men and women in the past. Ora said she simply wanted to share her experiences through her music. The singer also said that she never intended to hurt anyone.

Cardi B Issues Statement

On Tuesday, Cardi B also issued an apology to both the fans and the critics. Just like Ora, the "Bodak Yellow" singer also had experiences with women. Cardi B said she and her fellow singers did not want to cause any harm.

"I thought the song was a good song and I remember my experience," wrote Cardi B.
