Charli XCX has teamed up with popular The Voice host Rita Ora

Charli XCX might not be able to sort out a release date for her album (it's just been pushed back in the UK again) but she is keeping herself busy, recording a new version of her album track Doing It with everyone's favourite underwear refusnik, Rita Ora.

As you might expect, it's a blindingly colourful, whip-smart pop song. Rita's girly vocals are a great counterpoint to Charli's poshly drawled vowels, and the song's gossamer-thin lyric ("Friends like a team in a circle / We're together, we're so alive") makes more sense as a duet between two BFFs.

Those of us holding out hope for Charli becoming a "proper" pop star in 2015 will be pleased to hear the single's just been added to Radio 1's playlist. Everyone else can just get used to it.
