Who runs the world?

Fresh off a two year legal battle with Roc Nation, where the singer says she was discrimated against because of her gender, Rita Ora gets back to the music and releases her first single of the year, “Girls.”

Inspired by the emergence of powerful women in the culture and around the world, Rita recruits an all-female cast of Cardi B, Bebe Rexha, and Charli XCX.

“These past few years I’ve been so inspired by all the strong women I’ve seen who aren’t afraid to be themselves,” Rita says. “For those who aren’t afraid to rule the world, this is our anthem. A celebration of love. And of course, thank you to all the fellow boss women who so kindly graced this song with me — each representing who they are and where they are from. I hope you dance your socks off with us!”

UPDATE: One month after the audio, Rita and company are back with a matching visual. And, as expected, it’s full of beautiful women. Oh, and Rita and Cardi share a little on-screen kiss, because why not?
