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.
