Most Girls

"Most Girls" is a song recorded by American singer and actress Hailee Steinfeld and intended as the lead single for her forthcoming debut studio album.[3] It was released April 28, 2017 by Republic Records.[4] Steinfeld wrote the "female empowerment anthem" with Jeremy Dussolliet, Tim Sommers, Asia Whiteacre, and the record's co-producers, Ryan Tedder and Zach Skelton.[5]

Background and release

On April 24, Steinfeld revealed the cover and release date for "Most Girls" through her social media pages.[6] The song is Steinfeld's first single as a lead artist since "Starving" in July 2016, following a number of collaborations released earlier in 2017. "Most Girls" was released to digital retailers worldwide on April 28, 2017.[7] While it was made available for airplay immediately, its official impact date at American contemporary hit radio was May 2, 2017.[4][8] Republic Records also serviced the song to hot adult contemporary stations on May 15, 2017.[9]

Critical reception

Jonathan Currinn of Outlet Mag wrote that the song's lyrics "are incredibly clever, really proving that Hailee Steinfeld has what it takes to inspire women," and also praised the "rhythmically groovy" but not over-produced beat.[5] De Elizabeth of Teen Vogue called Steinfeld's vocals on the track "catchy," and wrote that "you'll want to be listening to this jam all weekend."[2] Mike Wass of Idolator wrote that "Most Girls" is "as catchy as it is relatable and inspiring."[3]

Live performances

Steinfeld performed "Most Girls" live for the first time at 2017 Radio Disney Music Awards on April 29, 2017.[10]

Music video

The official music video for "Most Girls" was directed by Hannah Lux Davis and premiered May 23, 2017.[11] The clip begins with Steinfeld rebuffing a man who claims she is "not like most girls."[12] Throughout the majority of the video, Steinfeld "channels" various different personas, including a boxer, party girl, and a bookwork.[12][13] Arielle Tschinkel of Idolator wrote that the video's premise emphasizes "that girls can be whoever they want to be,"[12] while the Daily Mail added that Steinfeld is "celebrating being a woman" in the video.[13] At the end of the video, Steinfeld is joined by a group of young women wearing t-shirts emblazoned with positive attributes such as "fearless" and "relentless."[14]

While the video received praise for its message of embracing individuality,[13][15] it also drew some criticism for its lack of diversity.[14][16] "All of these girls are extremely thin and femme," writes Aimée Lutkin of The Muse-Jezebel, "so in reality most girls do not appear in this video."[16]

Lyrics

Some girls feel best in their tiny dresses
Some girls in nothin' but sweatpants, looking like a princess
Some girls kiss new lips every single night
They're stayin' out late cause they just celebrating life

You know some days you feel so good in your own skin
But it's okay if you want to change the body that you came in
Cause you look greatest when you feel like a damn queen
We're all just playing a game in a way, tryna win that life

Most girls are smart and strong and beautiful
Most girls work hard, go far, we are unstoppable
Most girls, our fight to make every day
No two are the same
I wanna be like, I wanna be like most girls
I wanna be like, I wanna be like most girls
I wanna be like, I wanna be like
I wanna be like, I wanna be like
I wanna be like, I wanna be like

Some girls like to keep their physique real private
Some girls wear jeans so tight 'cause it feels so right, yeah
Some girls, every day searching, keep the blades turning
Sleepin' in late cause they're just celebrating life

You know some days you feel so good in your own skin
But it's okay if you want to change the body that you came in
Cause you look greatest when you feel like a damn queen
We're all just playing a game in a way trying to win that life

Most girls are smart and strong and beautiful
Most girls work hard, go far, we are unstoppable
Most girls, our fight to make every day
No two are the same
I wanna be like, I wanna be like most girls
I wanna be like, I wanna be like most girls
I wanna be like, I wanna be like
I wanna be like, I wanna be like
I wanna be like, I wanna be like

Most girls, yeah
Most girls
Wanna be, wanna be, wanna be
Most girls, our fight to make every day
No two are the same
I wanna be like

I wanna be like most girls
I wanna be like, I wanna be like most girls
I wanna be like, I wanna be like
I wanna be like, I wanna be like
I wanna be like
