Fresh off a risky fashion choice at Sunday night’s Billboard Music Awards, Rita Ora dropped her latest single, “Poison,” on Monday. The song details the pain Ora has experienced as the result of falling for a toxic love interest. “I’m heading straight to the edge,” Ora sings over a lyric video that features a drawing of her wearing a black beret and using a cigarette holder to take a drag.

The upbeat track falls in line with poppy hits like “How We Do (Party)” and “I Will Never Let You Down,” which both reached No. 1. “Poison” will appear on Ora’s follow-up to her self-title debut album. Though originally slated for a late 2014 release, Ora’s second album was delayed after she went through a public breakup with EDM producer Calvin Harris, who was also in attendance at the Billboard Music Awards.

The 24-year-old singer presented the award for Top Hot 100 Song to Megan Trainor and was nominated for Top Rap Song for “Black Widow” with Iggy Azalea.
