Thank you for asking me to join, Dua Would do it again anytime.”
Charli XCX also got in on the ladies supporting ladies vibe on her own Instagram: “Collaborating with people has always been my favorite thing to do, but collaborating with women puts me on some kind of magical power shit. Women together are powerful and wild and beautiful and fucking fun!! Being a part of Dua’s Live Loung with MØ, ALMA, and Zara was really special and exciting. We are all different artists with different stories to tell but coming together to scream IDGAF at the top of my lungs with 4 other women I deeply respect felt really empowering and really fucking good. Thank you Dua for having me.”
