Rita Ora Gets Dark & Edgy On New Prince Collaboration: Listen To A Snippet

As part of the celebration for his new albums, his solo Art Official Age and 3RDEYEGIRL‘s PLECTRUMELECTRUM (which both dropped on September 30)Prince gave fans an exclusive behind-the-scenes look of the release party. Along with a tour of his Paisley Park studio and a 20-minute live set of new music, the rocker also previewed a new track with Rita Ora.

Before his concert, Prince asked Josh Welton (the co-producer of Art Official Age) to play the snippet featuring Ora. What came out of the speakers is a sound we typically don’t associate with the “I Will Never Let You Down” singer. Instead of her comfort zone of bubbly synths, the song reveals edgy vocals that are laid over a savage, electronic-based production fit for a rockstar.

Ora has talked about this Prince collaboration for a while now, so it’s nice to finally hear what they have been working on – even if it’s just for a few seconds.
