“At the VMAs I was asked what Rumors was about & I said that it flips the old fashioned ‘fairytale’ on its head,” she wrote. With the intention to empower women, she continued: “cause (guess what) girls can play the game just the same as guys, and we can win.” Armed with lyrics like “I know that your intentions are as bad as mine,” the song succeeds in giving females the reigns when it comes to navigating the game of attraction.
The tune impressively snagged the title of number two most added song in the world out of new music on Friday, August 24. Filled with excitement, the Descendants actress wrote to her followers on Instagram: “have you heard the #rumors that we have the #2 MOST ADDED SONG IN THE WORLD on new music friday because it’s true and I love you I love you I love you thank you”.
Sofía’s collaborator R3hab also shared his delight at the song’s overnight success on social media. He is considered one of the greatest Dutch house artists in the entire world, having toured internationally many times. The record producer has also collaborated with artists like Rihanna, Lady Gaga and even one of Sofía’s idols Jennifer Lopez.
