In August she released “Lonely Together,” a global Top 10 hit collaboration with Avicii. “Anywhere” – single released last October – earnt a #2 spot in the UK. “For You,” a collaboration with Liam Payne for the Fifty Shades Freed Soundtrack, became her fourth Top 10 hit, and her girl-power anthem “Girls,” saw Rita team up withCardi B, Bebe Rexha & Charli XCX to achieve yet another global success. All of these hit songs will be featured on the upcoming Phoenix album in November.
Co-written by Rita herself, newest single “Let You Love Me” is a mid-tempo pop-anthem, revealing her insecurities in a new relationship. It is one of Rita’s most intimate tracks to-date and one that allows you to hear the strength of her vocal performance as she lets her guard down and shows her vulnerable side to love. With soft vocals against vibrant synths, the track shifts between delicate verses to a dance-driven chorus, perfectly conveying her wish to let herself be loved.
In a statement about the album in Rolling Stones, Rita says, “One of the most liberating feelings for me is performing and creating music. This album is a true labour of love, and it was important for me to do it my way…Both challenging and euphoric at times. I am really proud of and grateful for the journey that the making of Phoenix has taken me on.”
