Fresh: Rita Ora – ‘Ora’ (Snippets)
Roc Nation’s newest pop princess Rita Ora is releasing her debut album in the UK in three weeks. However, the ‘Hot Right Now’ singer has decided to relieve the appetites of eagerly awaiting fans by sharing a preview via iTunes…
The tracks released online include collaborations with the likes of J. Cole on the track ‘Love Is War’ and Will.i.am with ‘Fall In Love’ as well as on the smash-hit No.1 single ‘R.I.P’ with UK hip-hop royalty Tinie Tempah.
‘Ora’ is polished pop and features production credits from The Dream, The Runners and Stargate. The debut is a mix of radio friendly pop rock and boasts a distinctly US sound, which is in stark contrast with Rita’s distinctive London accent.
Discussing the album title in an interview with GQ, Rita explained her decision for the albums name, sharing: "It's my name, but also ‘ora’ in my language means ‘time’ and it took me so long to do this album. Like three years."
‘Ora’ is scheduled for release on August 27. Check what the ROC is cooking below.
