Rita Ora Sings Her Ed Sheeran Collaboration “Us”: WatchAugust 26, 2015
Listen to the mid-tempo song from her first tour show.
Rita Ora performed a new song that features Ed Sheeran.
Rita Ora kicked off her Body On Me US Tour in San Fransisco on Tuesday (Aug. 25), and sang her new Ed Sheeran-penned song “Us.” Ora tells Rap-Up today the song is “incredible.”
“The record that I have with Ed, he’s not featured on, he just wrote. It’s called ’Us’ and for me, it’s one of the most sweetest, heartwarming, incredible love songs-slash-reality that I’ve ever heard,” she said. “And it kinda makes me think, ‘Thank God that someone wrote that in a song.’”
She adds the song perfectly fits the “hip-hop to R&B to soul” sound of her album.
“It’s about expressing my sexuality, expressing my independence as a female, being really honest with my past,” she said.
“I did this incredibly beautiful song with Ed about our friendship; he’s one of my best friends,” Ora said in a separate interview with Noisey. “It’s amazing having a friend in this industry of the opposite *** that you haven’t hooked up with. He’s such a legend. I respect him in so many ways.”
