Netsky & Rita Ora Team Up for New Song “Barricades”
- Belgian DJ Boris Daenen, aka Netsky and British singer-songwriter Rita Ora teamed up to release a new song “Barricades” on June 24, 2022.
This marks the first collaboration between Netsky and Rita Ora.
The track was written by Boris Daenen, Inna Wroldsen, Mikkel Eriksen and Tor Hermansen. Produced by Netsky and Stargate.
The accompanying music video was directed by Joe Mischo, who filmed in Los Angles.
Netsky said, “I've wanted to work with Rita since I heard RIP, so it was really special to get her and Stargate together in the studio again. We wanted to make a song that really showcased the power of her voice. The song is about the battles people go through being in love. We combined the simple beauty of pop with the power of breaks/drum and bass. I want to make dance music that has honesty and emotion - I think this song is that.”
Rita Ora said, “It's been amazing to work with Netsky on 'Barricades'. It's an honour to get to work with such a talented producer, especially on a track like this. Collaborating on another Drum n Bass record a decade after my first number one 'Hot Right Now' with DJ Fresh, feels like coming home, and I'm beyond excited for everyone to hear it. I hope they love dancing to it as much as I do.”
