The refrain reads: "sometimes, I just wanna kiss girls, girls, girls / Red wine, I just wanna kiss girls, girls, girls".

Cardi also went on, in the same tweet, to say that she felt the song was an accurate expression of her own experiences.

'I personally myself had experiences with other woman, shiieeett with a lot of woman! On the surface, "Girls" is a saucy, bubble-gum, feel-good pop song with a soaring hook, a satisfyingly crunchy rap feature from Cardi ("I'm so sexy I seduce myself") and smooth-as-butter vocal additions from Charli and Bebe.

After disappearing from social media on Saturday following some harsh comments from Azealia Banks, the "Bodak Yellow" star was tweeting Tuesday and sticking up for the new song she's featured on, "Girls".

"I know i have use words before that I wasn't aware that they are offensive to the LGBT community", she admitted.

Kiyoko released a statement claiming that the song "does more harm than good for the LGBTQ+ community" while Kehlani hit out at its "harmful lyrics". I grew up in a small city where people always said "d*ke" so I thought it was an okay thing to say but when I moved away I quickly learned it was offensive.

Now, Cardi, who has previously identified as bisexual, has responded to criticisms like Hayley's with a statement on Twitter, saying that it's based on her own personal experiences with other women. & have met them all and respect them. Looking forward, I hope that continuing to express myself through my art will empower my fans to feel as proud of themselves as I'm learning to feel about who I am'.
