“Keep Talking” by Rita Ora (ft. Julia Michaels)
“Keep Talking” is the title of a 2018 collaboration between two noted singers Rita Ora and Julia Michaels. In the lyrics of “Keep Talking”, the singers are basically addressing people who gossip about them.
Rita Ora brags that she can counterattack by doing some gossiping of her own, even more effectively than her competitors. She also states the confusion she is experiencing in trying to understand the ambitions of people who engage in such activities. In fact the news they spread is more fake than factual. However, despite their efforts, the pain they are trying to inflict are already experiences she and Julia have gone through in the past. As such they have decided to take the higher road. And what’s this higher road? By simply ignoring the chatter and not seeking vengeance.
