Rita Ora and Liam Payne Release Gorgeous Duet 'For You'
The long-awaited collaboration is finally here...
The A-list pair surprised fans around the world last month when they revealed they had teamed up for the Fifty Shades Freed soundtrack single, following Payne's ex-bandmate Zayn Malik and Taylor Swift.
'For You' is finally here and it is not what we expected yet is everything we needed: a dizzying rush of love that soars to euphoria as both stars belt out, sounding incredible.
Rita opens the song - and low-key commands it from then on - with an oh-so-sweet verse of finding true love, while Liam gets a little more intimate in the second verse.
The highlight is the gorgeous pre-chorus, which is repeated several times throughout and later becomes the show-stopping middle 8, because the lyrics are simply beautiful.
"I'm free as a bird and flying in your cage / I'm diving in deep and I'm riding with no brakes / And I'm bleeding in love, you're swimming in my veins / You got me now."
'For You' follows Ellie Goulding's UK chart-topping 'Love Me Like You Do' that lead the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack, and the Zayn and Taylor duet that reached Number 2 in the US.
Liam and Rita's duet is just as cinematic yet its fast-paced production is a welcome change from the past two pop ballads, and we expect it to be just as huge as they were.
Is this the best of the three soundtrack singles? Let us know what you think @MTVUK!
