Ciara has joined forces with rappers Lola Brooke and Lady London for a remix of her empowering new single, “Da Girls.”
The remix starts with the original catchy hook, before Brooke steps in for the first verse. “This is for the girls independent like me / Got my feelings in my pocket I don’t wear it on my sleeves,” she raps.
London appears in verse two, where she shares the uplifting message: “If you question your why and are feeling defeated, look in the mirror and repeat after me / I am humongous / I am resourceful / I am much better than ever could be.”
Ciara’s original rap-like verse surfaces in the third verse. “I’m bad and paid, I move like the n**gas move / I got foreigns, chains too / It ain’t really nothing that I can’t do,” she raps.
Regarding her new collaboration, Ciara says, “Lola and Lady London are special. They each bring a unique star quality to everything they do. From the tone of their voices to the fire verses, they spoke life into this record for all da girls around the world.”
“Da Girls (Girls Mix)” arrives with an accompanying video, which can be viewed below.

The original version of “Da Girls” was released March 24 via Ciara’s Beauty Marks Entertainment. The song was produced by Derrick Milano, OG Parker, Romano, tenroc and Mike Woods.
“‘Da Girls’ is a female empowerment anthem that celebrates the strength and resiliency of women all over the world,” explained Ciara. “It speaks life into the endless possibilities of a woman on a mission.”
Regarding the Sara Lacombe-directed video, Ciara shared, “I wanted an all-female team for this video to capture the energy and joy of when girls come together and have a good time. This is how I am with MY girls.”
“Da Girls” is the follow-up to Ciara’s 2022 singles “JUMP” and “Better Thangs” with Summer Walker. The former track, which features hip-hop group Coast Contra, opened at No. 4 on Billboard’s R&B Digital Song Sales chart. The latter song was released in early fall, with a GloRilla-assisted remix that followed toward the end of the year.
