Rita Ora is back has teamed up with DJ Netsky for a new summer anthem.
The pair have teamed up with producer Stargate to create the sizzling song “Barricades,” which will also come with a music video, and Rita is “beyond thrilled” for her fans to hear the new song.
She said: “It was amazing working with Netsky on ‘Barricades’.
“It’s an honor to work with such a talented producer, especially on a track like this.
“Collaborating on another Drum n Bass album a decade after my first number one ‘Hot Right Now’ with DJ Fresh feels like coming home, and I’m beyond excited for everyone to hear it. I hope they enjoy dancing to it as much as I do.”
The video was filmed in Los Angles and directed by Joe Mischo, well known for directing singer-songwriter Conan Gray’s music videos.
Speaking about his collaboration with Rita, Netsky said, “I’ve wanted to work with Rita ever since I heard ‘RIP’, so it was really special to reunite her with Stargate in the studio again.
“We wanted to make a song that really showcased the power of her voice. The song is about the battles people go through to be in love. We combined the simple beauty of pop with the power of breaks/drum and bass.
“I want to make dance music that has honesty and emotion – I think this song is that.”
Rita currently holds the record for the most Top 10 singles for a British female artist in the UK in history with a total of 13.
