Sky Ferreira - Red Lips

You're ten a penny
Cheap shot
Spreading your legs
For the boys
Watch out

Someone will beat you the same
(Freak out)
Wash out your mouth
Such a big girl
Such big news
Such big talk
Your number is up
If you like it or not
What a shock

"Red Lips" is the lead single from Sky Ferreira's second EP, Ghost. It was released on July 17, 2012, by Capitol Records. The song is a pop rock song that describes the emotional deterioration of an individual that Ferreira disliked. It differs from the previous electropop styles displayed in her earlier works; this was deliberately done to prevent Ferreira from being branded in a similar fashion as Britney Spears, which she felt that Capitol Records had intended to do. Despite Ghost itself garnering mixed reviews, "Red Lips" received generally favorable reviews from music critics, who complimented its overall production. However, the track failed to impact any national record charts. An accompanying music video for "Red Lips" was directed by Terry Richardson, and was premiered through Richardson's YouTube channel on June 12, 2012. Critics directed their commentaries towards Ferreira's increasingly risqué public persona, shifting from the more innocent image with which she launched her career.
