So many emotions.
Rita Ora has been trying to release a new album for years. She collaborated with ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris on a heap of material, but after their bitter fallout, the producer barred her from performing any of their past work that he owned the rights to. That included arguably her biggest hit to date, "I Will Never Let You Down," and any of the newer works. Fortunately, the British pop star is back on track. She and Harris reportedly buried the hatchet, and she's focusing on her forthcoming LP. Ora announced her departure as host of America's Next Top Model (Tyra Banks is back, bitches) because she is readying new music, and it drops soon.
Rita Ora’s New Album Features A Collaboration With Jess Glynne
Ora covers the new issue of Shape magazine. Of course she gloats about her healthy diet (it’s about being strong, not skinny), but more importantly the "Body On Me" singer gushes over her forthcoming record.
"Of everything I’ve accomplished, I’m proudest of my new album," she says. "It’s going to shock people. I think it’ll be like, ‘Wow, I didn’t know she had those emotions.’ Because I don’t think they really know me....They see pictures of me, they watch me on TV, but I try to keep my personal life as private as possible, and I don’t post pictures of who I’m seeing. On this album, though, I say things I think people have been wanting to know. But it’s done in a moving-forward way. It’s a positive, uplifting album.”
A few weeks back, Ora said her new single drops in April (Shape confirms the record drops this summer). We're two weeks into the month, and still nothing. We're ready when you are, Rita!
