Big tune: Rita Ora and Charles Hamilton

US rapper Charles Hamilton has signed up fellow brick wall enthusiast Rita Ora for his excellent new single, NY Raining.

A loping, piano-driven track with a strutting bassline, it's that very rare beast: A rapped love song. "You make me smile, stop doing that," says Hamilton, "I guess I rap for you." What a romantic, eh kids?

NY Raining is taken from the hit US TV series Empire, which can loosely be described as a hip-hop version of The Sopranos: A drug dealer turned music mogul finds his past coming back to haunt him, etc, etc.

Hamilton and Ora will perform this song in the "season finale" (last episode) next week.
