Ain’t About To Stop is the third track on Prince’s 38th album Hitnrun Phase One. The track is a collaboration between Prince, Joshua Welton and British singer Rita Ora.

It was originally announced for inclusion on Rita Ora’s second album (along with The Single Most Amazing) due to be released in January 2015, but postponed until Summer 2015 and then postponed further. After much delay and many changes the album was ultimately released as 'Phoenix' in November 2018, omitting the Prince song altogether.
A snippet of the track was streamed during the Yahoo! Live album release party for Art Official Age and Plectrumelectrum by Joshua Welton from his Macbook Pro in Paisley Park Studios (Studio C), Chanhassen, Minnesota (along with Revelation and X’s Face). It is not known if the track will still appear on her album in addition to Hitnrun Phase One, but the version included on Prince’s album replaces her lead vocals with his own, and references to coming from "West London" (Rita Ora’s place of origin) are sung by Prince as "North Minne" (Minneapolis).

While specific recording dates are not known, it is assumed to have been recorded in Summer 2014 at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota.
