This should have been a solo Rita Ora song.

Rita Ora (and Liam Payne) have a hit on their hands with new song “For You.”

The duet serves as one of the songs off the forthcoming Fifty Shades Freed soundtrack.

Rita takes the reigns on the track, only offering Liam a sliver of the spotlight. I’m not mad about it.

“I’m free as a bird / When I’m flying in your cage (so lost),” they sing over building, ’80s-tinged production and blaring synth horns. “I’m diving in deep / And I’m riding with no brakes (no luck) / And I’m bleeding in love / You’re swimming in my veins / You got me now.”

I’ll be perfectly honest… Liam’s presence feels useless on this. Rita outshined him; it would have flowed better as a solo cut. How nice of her to share this, though.

The two also teased a music video for the track. watch that here, then give “For You” a play below:
