Welcome to YouTube Re:View, a weekly listing of the most talked-about YouTube videos in the UK. This week, we’re putting the spotlight on music.
Rita Ora - Girls ft. Cardi B, Bebe Rexha & Charli XCX (Official Video)
First up, we have Rita Ora, fresh off the stage from the House Festival, supported by YouTube. Remember we featured the lyrics video for Girls a few weeks back? Since then, this official music video has had over 30m views – and just like the weather in the UK right now – it’s been a hot trender. Is that down to the beautiful visuals, the squad (it also ft. Cardi B, Bebe Rexha & Charli XCX), the catchy tune or the fact it just oozes serious girl power? We’ll let you decide.
