Sigala and Rita Ora announce release of "summer banger" You For Me

The release follows Sigala's eighth Top 10 single last year and Rita's 2021 Bang EP.

Sigala and Rita Ora have announced the release of a new collaboration, You For Me. 

Described as a "summer banger" by Rita herself, the track is set to drop next Friday (July 2) and is the first time both artists have collaborated with each other. 

Posting a clip of the song on his Instagram, Sigala can be seen dancing along to a slice of the highly-energised dance-pop that has become his signature sound. 

"The wait is finally over," the DJ wrote next to the snippet. "My next single 'You For Me' with the insanely talented Rita Ora is dropping next Friday. It's been a long time coming & we're so so excited for you to hear this one!|

Of course, the collaboration also brings the How We Do singer back to her roots - her debut single and first  of four UK Number 1s, Hot Right Now, came from a link-up with DJ Fresh in 2012.

This will also be Sigala's first new material of 2021. Last year, the DJ scored his eighth Top 10 hit with James Arthur for their song Lasting Love and also earned another Top 20 hit with Becky Hill for their collab Heaven On My Mind.

For Rita, You For Me follows hot on the heels of her EP Bang, which contained production from enigmatic DJ Imanbek as well as collaborations with David Guetta and Gunna on the single Big and a memorable Axel F sample on Bang Bang.

Her last long-player effort, 2018's Phoenix, has amassed total chart sales of 180,000 and contained a string of hits like Your Song, Anywhere and Let You Love Me, which helped Rita set a record for the most Top 10 singles of any British female artist.
