U.K. pop star Rita Ora released her album Phoenix on Nov. 23. A standout among the new tracks is a collaboration with pop singer-songwriter Julia Michaels.

Phoenix is Ora's second album and first one released in the U.S. It's yielded hit singles like "Your Song," "Anywhere" and "Girls" with Cardi B, Charli XCX and Bebe Rexha. Rita keeps the girl power coming on the standout "Keep Talking" featuring Michaels. 

Michaels penned "Keep Talking" with her songwriting partner Justin Tranter and production duo Stargate. Heavy percussion and tolling synths back Rita and Julia "taking the high road" and pushing back on their naysayers. "There's nothing you can say to me that I haven't said to myself," they sing together. Ora and Michaels are empowering on this classy kiss-off anthem.

"Keep Talking" is now available on iTunes and Apple Music alongside Ora's Phoenix album. Michaels is currently opening for P!nk on her Beautiful Trauma World Tour. She will release her Inner Monogue Part I EP on Jan. 25.
