SoulCulture were the first to interview Rita Ora following her newly inked Roc Nation deal back in 2009 – out at Roc The Mic studios in New York, fresh-faced and working with UK producers Chase & Status – but held off running the interview as it’s taken this long for some actual music to drop from the starlet. Hot off the heels of her UK hit with DJ Fresh‘s “Hot Right Now,” she stops by 4Music show The Crush to perform her UK debut single, “R.I.P.”
Yup, she can sing.
Produced by Chase & Status and Stargate and written by Drake, the song featuring Tinie Tempah is set for release on May 6 [pre-order]. Watch her live [solo] performance below, and the official video here.
