Rita Ora does acoustic version of ‘R.I.P.’ [Video]


For the latest edition of SB.TV‘s Acoustic 64 series, Roc Nation songstress Rita Ora belts out her smash single “R.I.P.” without the assistance of any amplifiers, pitch correction or any other electronic trickery, truly putting her golden pipes on display.

Accompanied by nothing but — what else? — an acoustic guitar, Ora knocks this one out of the park, hitting each note precisely and giving the song an appeal beyond what it already had. The song is already the UK’s fastest-selling single, and it’s safe to assume that those numbers will continue to rise once this video begins to circulate.

Of course, “R.I.P.” will appear on Ora’s forthcoming Roc Nation debut. Until the full-length arrives, get your hands on the single here.
