Rita confirmed back in May that the two teamed up for a song, but we are finally getting a little more insight on what the track is all about.
"The record that I have with Ed, he's not featured on, he just wrote. It's called 'Us' and for me, it's one of the most sweetest, heartwarming, incredible love songs-slash-reality that I've ever heard," Rita told Rap-Up. "And it kinda makes me think, ‘Thank God that someone wrote that in a song.'"
Rita said that the song perfectly fits in with the sound she is going for on this album, which is "hip-hop to R&B to soul," and the subject matter for the album.
"It's about expressing my sexuality, expressing my independence as a female, being really honest with my past," she said.
When revealing the news that she and the "Thinking Out Loud" singer teamed up for a song, the "Body On Me" singer revealed that this love song actually took a page out of their personal lives.
“I did this incredibly beautiful song with Ed about our friendship; he's one of my best friends,” she said an interview to Noisey. “It's amazing having a friend in this industry of the opposite sex that you haven't hooked up with. He's such a legend. I respect him in so many ways.”
