Rita Ora's new album is about female empowerment.

The 'Poison' hitmaker is currently working on her second studio album and has teased fans can expect a record ''all about p**sy power'' because she wants to celebrate female independence and discuss issues of gender equality.

She explained: ''It's really about how we get judged for the things that we do and how men don't.

''I know it's part of society, but I think we can still stick together as females.

''The motive of this album all really came from the nature of being European.''

The 24-year-old star - who has reportedly worked with Ed Sheeran and Disclosure on the LP - continued to say she believes it's an ''exciting time'' for female musicians because there are so many women celebrating who they are.

She told Hot 97 radio station: ''Also I feel like at the moment, females have never been closer - pop stars, specifically. It's an exciting time for females in this industry.''

Last month, Rita - who recently split up with her boyfriend Ricky Hil - revealed she has also worked with 'Loyal' singer Chris Brown, with their collaboration set to be her next single.

After the news they had worked together was revealed, she said: ''Chris Brown is strong, powerful and someone that is important to me personally and professionally.

''The discrimination and all what people think? If you have a great song then no one cares.''
