"God Is a Girl"

"God Is a Girl" is the third and final single from German trance group Groove Coverage's debut album, Covergirl.


The chorus of the song uses a melody piece from "Jefferson", a Roxette song from their Room Service album (2001).[1] The writer of "Jefferson", Per Gessle, made an arrangement with Groove Coverage to receive a rumoured 50% of royalties from the song,[2][3] though Gessle said that figure was "...far from the truth."[1] Gessle is listed as one of the song's official songwriters/composers on BMI's website.[4]

Cover versions[edit]

Singaporean artist Jocie Guo Mei Mei covered the song under the name, "Ai Qing Nü Shen (Love Goddess)" on her 2nd album, "My Darling." A music video accompanies it.

Electronic duo W&W remade the song in collaboration with Groove Coverage in 2018.
