The 29-year-old singer will release her new song on Friday (13.03.20), and it has now been revealed that 'Someone You Loved' hitmaker Lewis penned the upcoming hit, on which he also plays guitar and lends his voice to the backing vocals.
A source told The Sun newspaper's Bizarre column: "Lewis has really proven himself as a songwriter and is being encouraged to give away more songs he is unlikely to release himself, as well as writing specifically for other artists."
It can be hugely lucrative, so launching himself as a songwriter for other acts is sure to earn him a fortune. "Right now he is on the road a lot and starting to think about his second album. But being able to write for other people helps Lewis to take his mind off his own music."
Rita couldn't be happier to have Lewis, 23, involved with her new track, as she praised the Scottish singer as "a great talent".
She said: "I loved working with Lewis on this track. It's been a lot of fun." "He's a great talent and a man of the moment. I really connected with the lyrics when he sent it to me."
