Released on September 13, "Don't Call Me Angel" is the lead single for the soundtrack of the much-anticipated 2019 Charlie's Angels Film.

The daring music video starring Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus, and Lana Del Rey showed them clad in beautiful black wings and outfits that made them shine despite the dark tones of the MV.

And as fans of the trio rave about its release, the hashtag #DontCallmeAngel easily dominated twitter's worldwide trends and even came with its own special emoji showing the newly debuted Charlie's Angels logo.

The music video also gained nearly 5 million views and 800,000 likes in just five hours after it premiered. It also reached multiple #1's on iTunes charts in 10 different countries and continues to peak in several more.

Three femmes fatales

Starting it off with impressive computer graphics, dangerously high heels, helicopters, and swords in their sheaths, the three femmes fatales⁠ who were embarking on a mission appeared dauntless and beautiful in the spy-themed music video.

Ariana, despite looking sweet and almost angelic in her sparkly all-white ensemble, belted it out in her lyrics that she "ain't from no heaven" . This makes one think that her outfit may be serving as a spy's disguise or decoy in the music video's narrative. "Even though you know we fly, don't call me an angel", she added.

Meanwhile, Miley⁠—with her black gloves, golden chains, and amazingly toned muscles⁠—looked tough and bold as she overpowered her helpless captive, claiming the boxing ring.

Briefly, at the end of her scene, she appeared with black wings on that she continued to wear for the rest of the video. With this, some Miley fans became hyped as it is reminiscent of her similarly winged look in 2010 hit song, "Can't Be Tamed".

Lana also thrilled viewers with the kind of bridge and style that she's known to pull off well.

Unlike the fast and kind of upbeat vibe of majority of the song, her part came in slow and almost enchanting. Wearing a short red robe and being surrounded by the fire she sang, "I fell from heaven and now I'm living like a devil". A few moments later it cut to her being in what seemed like a control room, where she had a hold of weapons and even practiced throwing knives. "We in it together, but don't call me an angel", she sang matter of factly.

Co-written by the three women themselves, the song was viewed by many as an empowering anthem. It concluded with them finally singing together, strutting in the mansion with their black wings and outfits. Each of them shined holding their own diverse styles, but coming together made them simply show-stopping.

Film release

The upcoming Charlie's Angels film set for release on November 15, 2019, will be a reboot to the famous and highly successful Charlie's Angels franchise back in the 2000s.

It was then starred by Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, and Lucy Liu.

This time, Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, and Ella Balinska will be taking the lead to be this generation's new Charlie's Angels. Elizabeth Banks, who also appeared briefly in the music video acting as Bosley, is the director of the film.

Last June, a snippet of "Don't Call Me Angel" was featured and first heard in the 2019 film's official trailer.
