Tiësto, Jonas Blue, and Rita Ora strike a pleasing balance on new collaboration, ‘Ritual’

Tiësto, Jonas Blue, and Rita Ora are here with their highly anticipated collaboration, “Ritual,” and instead of it being a formulaic pop hit, Blue and Tiësto find a way to combine driving instrumental arrangements and a progressive drop into a crowd-pleasing product that’s fit for club floors and radio airwaves alike. The track was teased by all three artists on their socials earlier in the week leaving fans wondering which direction the trio would go with the release. Jonas Blue is known for his feel-good crossover hits, and the genre of Tiësto’s productions are always a surprise.

“Ritual,” leans on a building melody that features a humming backdrop juxtaposed against Ora’s captivating vocals. The break is a progressive highlight that is bound to find its home on the main stage. “Ritual” will almost certainly be yielding Tiësto, Blue, and Ora their next hit, and the release is out now Universal Music.
