Prince recorded rap with Rita Ora.
Prince's new album features a duet with Rita Ora.
The 'Purple Rain' hit-maker gave a reporter from the Minneapolis Star Tribune a preview of his as yet untitled upcoming album, which is expected to be released later this year and includes a ''rare rap song'' he recorded with the British pop sensation.
Prince went on to reveal he wants to release the track, described as ''aggressive and menacing'', as soon as possible for it to stay current, because ''time is money'' for celebrities like Rita who could make cash ''walking out of the house wearing a certain kind of makeup or sunglasses''.
The record - which is a separate project from his new 3rdEyeGirl collaboration, 'Plectrum Electrum' - will begin with an electro-funk song called 'The Gold Standard', followed by a ''complex electronic discourse'' tune.
