Lana Del Rey saves the day on Charlie's Angels reboot track Don't Call Me Angel
Three of pop's biggest voices have finally come together on one record. Don't Call Me Angel by Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus and Lana Del Rey is here.
The song, from the soundtrack to the upcoming Charlie's Angels reboot, and its video were released late last night.
In the spirt of Destiny's Child's Independent Woman (the theme to the 2001 Charlie's Angels film) it's is a girl-power anthem about being underestimated as a woman.
"I make my money and I write the checks/ So say my name with a little respect," sings Miley.
"Don’t you try come around me/ Might work with her, but not me," adds Ari.
The video, by thank u, next director Hannah Lux Davis, is set in a dark, dingy mansion. Miley, Ari and Lana play a crime-fighting trio while the film's director Elizabeth Banks pops up in a cameo.
Don't Call Me Angel is unlikely to be remembered as any of the stars' best songs, yet each of the singers' fanbases have still gone wild for it online. But Twitter seems to be more or less in agreement that Lana is the best thing about the track.
The singer, who just released her sixth studio album, only makes her first appearance in the bridge but somehow manages to bring her signature vocal wistfulness to some fairly uninspired lyrics.
