Rita Ora has recorded a song with Ed Sheeran inspired by the fact they are "best friends" but have never "hooked up" with each other
Rita Ora has recorded a song with Ed Sheeran.
The 24-year-old singer revealed she headed into the studio with the 'Thinking Out Loud' hitmaker to create a song about how despite being "best friends," they have never got intimate with each other.
She said: "I did this incredibly beautiful song with Ed about our friendship; he's one of my best friends. It's amazing having a friend in this industry of the opposite sex that you haven't hooked up with. He's such a legend. I respect him in so many ways."
The 'I Will Never Let You Down' hitmaker - who released her debut album, 'Ora', in 2012 - didn't reveal whether the track will feature on her forthcoming second album, but recently premiered her new single, 'Poison'.
And while the as-yet untitled record has been delayed several times after her ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris pulled songs he had written for the star from the LP, Rita insisted her experiences have influenced the collection, which may shock people as she's been writing about "controversial things".
In an interview with entertainment website Noisey, she said: "The selective people that have written with me have seen that I'm writing about controversial things, but they understand that it's time. It's time for me to share it, to state the reason for why people think I'm famous."
