Rita Ora and Calvin Harris
Rita Ora and superstar DJ Calvin Harris went public with their romance in 2013.

Rita Ora has teamed up with her boyfriend DJ Calvin Harris to record a duet for her forthcoming second album.

The RIP hitmaker, who went public with their romance back in May 2013, confirmed on BBC Radio 1 that she had enlisted the Scottish DJ for a collaboration on the track, I Will Never Let You Down.

"I can't wait. I've been working on my new album for about a year," she told Nick Grimshaw. "The song I'm going to release features an incredible talent in Calvin Harris. It's called I Will Never Let You Down.

"I actually think it's one of the coolest songs I've ever heard."

The 23-year-old star, who appears to have taken a leaf from musical power couple Beyoncé and Jay-Z, insisted that working in the studio with her other half felt natural.

"It was so natural. I wouldn't have done it if it didn't make any sense. I was never really against [working with] people I'm involved with [and] doing something personally," she said.

"We were sitting at home, he started humming and then I started humming and then we hummed together."

Her album, which will be the follow-up to her 2012 debut Ora, is scheduled for release later this year. It also includes contributions from Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.

She will be hoping to emulate the success of Ora, which spawned hit including How We Do (Party), Shine Ya Light, and Radioactive.
