Rita Ora covers One Direction’s ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ for BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge [Audio]

While the UK’s latest – and perhaps best – musical export Rita Ora has been making waves across the pond (Complex cover official), the Roc Nation-signed songstress returned home to gift BBC Radio 1 a peach of a Live Lounge performance. Ms. Ora covered “What Makes You Beautiful” by the boy-band-we-all-love-to-hate, One Direction, and although the original was penned for all their smitten female fans, the refix works just as well from a lady’s perspective.

You can enjoy the audio of Ora’s cover below, and stay tuned for the actual footage which may surface online soon. Her debut album, ORA, is right around the corner, hitting shelves on August 27th.
