Rita Ora Posts Netsky Collaboration Barricades

Monday, 27 June 2022 Written by Jon Stickler

Rita Ora has teamed up with Netsky for a new single.

Fusing electro-pop production with soulful vocals, Barricades is packed with summer energy and arrives after weeks of the vocalist teasing the release with clips on social media. She commented:

"It’s been amazing to work with Netsky on Barricades. It’s an honour to get to work with such a talented producer, especially on a track like this. Collaborating on another drum 'n' bass record a decade after my first number 1 Hot Right Now with DJ Fresh, feels like coming home, and I'm beyond excited for everyone to hear it. I hope they love dancing to it as much as I do!"

Discussing the collaboration, Netsky added: "I've wanted to work with Rita since I heard RIP, so it was really special to get her and Stargate together 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 being 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."
