The Girl, So Confusing Charli XCX and Lorde Remix

In a surprising turn of events, Charli XCX and Lorde have transformed a rumored feud into a musical collaboration with the remix of “Girl, So Confusing” from Charli’s album Brat. The track, which initially fueled speculation about a complex relationship between the two artists, now features both of them sharing their feelings and finding common ground.

The remix, which dropped on June 20, has been a hot topic, especially because “Girl, So Confusing” was originally interpreted as a diss track aimed at Lorde. Charli sings about her complicated feelings towards a fellow female singer, hinting at rivalry and awkward encounters where they made half-hearted plans to collaborate. Many fans speculated that the song’s lyrics, such as “People say we’re alike / They say we’ve got the same hair,” were about Lorde, reflecting their perceived similarities and public comparisons.

Lorde’s involvement in the remix adds a new dimension to the song. Her verse reveals that she too felt insecure and misunderstood in their relationship. She admits to envying Charli’s seemingly perfect life and struggling with her own body image issues. Lorde’s lyrics, like “I was trapped in a hatred and your life seemed so awesome,” expose her internal struggles and how she projected her insecurities onto Charli. This raw honesty offers a poignant look into how both artists dealt with the pressures of fame and their perceived competition.

In a heartfelt moment in the song, Lorde acknowledges receiving a voicemail from Charli that laid bare her feelings about their relationship. Lorde sings, “Well honestly, I was speechless when I woke up to your voice note,” and suggests they work through their issues on the remix. This willingness to address their problems through music highlights their growth and the possibility of a stronger friendship moving forward.

Before this collaboration, Charli and Lorde’s relationship was often characterized by comparisons and misunderstandings. Charli openly discussed her jealousy over Lorde’s early success with her hit “Royals” and how their similar appearances, like their big hair and shared fashion choices, led to them being mistaken for each other. Despite these tensions, they have always maintained a professional respect for each other, and Lorde even attended Charli’s album release party in New York City.

The release of the remix marks a significant moment for both artists. It not only serves as a powerful example of resolving conflicts but also showcases their ability to turn personal experiences into relatable art. The remix blends Charli’s pop sensibilities with Lorde’s introspective style, creating a track that resonates with their fans and offers a hopeful message about understanding and growth.

This collaboration, revealed during Pride Month, underscores the importance of vulnerability and honesty in relationships, even among public figures. By sharing their insecurities and resolving their differences through music, Charli XCX and Lorde have set an example of how to navigate and heal from misunderstandings.

Fans can listen to the “Girl, So Confusing” remix and appreciate the journey these two artists have taken from perceived rivals to collaborators. Brat, with its deluxe version including new tracks, continues to explore themes of personal struggles and triumphs, solidifying Charli XCX’s place as a dynamic force in pop music.

The girl, so confusing version with lorde Lyrics:

Girl, it’s so confusing sometimes to be a girl
Girl, girl, girl, girl
Girl, it’s so confusing sometimes to be a girl
Girl, girl, girl, girl
Girl, how do you feel being a girl?
Girl, girl, girl, girl
Girl, how do you feel being a girl?
Girl, girl
Man, I don’t know, I’m just a girl
Girl, girl, girl, girl

Yeah, I don’t know if you like me
Sometimes I think you might hate me
Sometimes I think I might hate you
Maybe you just wanna be me
You always say, “Let’s go out”
So we go eat at a restaurant
Sometimes it feels a bit awkward
‘Cause we don’t have much in common

People say we’re alike
They say we’ve got the same hair
We talk about making music
But I don’t know if it’s honest
Can’t tell if you wanna see me
Falling over and failing
And you can’t tell what you’re feeling
I think I know how you feel

Girl, it’s so confusing sometimes to be a girl
Girl, girl, girl, girl
Girl, it’s so confusing sometimes to be a girl
Girl, girl, girl, girl
Girl, how do you feel being a girl?
Girl, girl, girl, girl
Girl, how do you feel being a girl?
Girl, girl
Man, I don’t know, I’m just a girl
Girl, girl, girl, girl

Well, honestly, I was speechless
When I woke up to your voice note
You told me how you’d been feeling
Let’s work it out on the remix
You’d always say, “Let’s go out,” but then I’d cancel last minute
I was so lost in my head and scared to be in the pictures
‘Cause for the last couple years, I’ve been at war in my body
I tried to starve myself thinner and then I gained all the weight back
I was trapped in a hatred and your life seemed so awesome
I never thought for a second my voice was in your head
Girl, you walk like a bitch, when I was ten, someone said that
And it’s just self defense until you’re building a weapon
She believed my projection and now I totally get it
Forgot that inside that icon there’s still a young girl from Essex

People say we’re alike
They say we’ve got the same hair
It’s you and me on the coin
The industry loves to spend
And when we put this to bed
The internet will go crazy
I’m glad I know how you feel
‘Cause I ride for you, Charli

Girl, it’s so confusing sometimes to be a girl
Girl, girl, girl, girl
Girl, it’s so confusing sometimes to be a girl
Girl, girl, girl, girl
Girl, how do you feel being a girl?
Girl, girl, girl, girl
Girl, how do you feel being a girl?
Girl, girl
Man, I don’t know, I’m just a girl
Girl, girl, girl, girl

Girl, girl (It’s so confusing)
You know I ride for you too

(It’s so confusing)
