because it is a bit racy

Can one say
a. I am sending you this song hoping it won't offend you, because it is a bit racy.
b. I am sending you this song and I hope it won't offend you, because it is a bit racy.

?

The last part is supposed to mean "I am saying this because it is a bit racy".
I am saying I hope it won't offend you because it is a bit racy.

Many thanks and Happy New Year.
