Rita Ora Talks EMA and Announces Single Release Date On Facebook Live


As she prepares to host the 2017 MTV EMAs, we caught up with Rita Ora to find out about her epic performance plans and she gave us a huge exclusive about her new single!

The ‘Lonely Together’ singer joined Becca Dudley on the London Eye for a Facebook Live catch-up all about the EMAs and she revealed that her brand new single – reportedly titled ‘Anywhere’ – is dropping later this month before she hits the stage on November.

After filming its music video in New York last week, Rita told the TRL hosts she will be performing a new song instead of ‘Your Song’ at the awards show, and it sounds like it’s going to be massive.

The song and its video will both be released on October 20, and the star couldn’t be more excited about it, telling Becca “I’ve never been more proud of anything.”

Considering how many brilliant songs Rita has released in her career we cannot wait to hear the new single if she thinks it’s her best yet!

“This single really represents the urge to break free from anything, which I think is very relevant to what we’ve been through this year as a city and a country.”

Rita Ora to Host MTV EMAs


The Kosovo-born singer will emcee the annual music event in her hometown of London on Nov. 12 and also perform. Rita Ora will host and perform at the 24th annual MTV Europe Music Awards (EMAs) in London, Viacom and MTV announced Wednesday.

“I’m so excited to be hosting this year’s MTV EMAs in my hometown,” said Ora. “I still remember how much fun my first EMAs was in Frankfurt in 2012, when I performed ‘RIP.’ I can’t wait to get back on the stage to host and perform. Worlds will collide on this global stage come Nov. 12, so get ready.”

“It’s huge,” she told The Hollywood Reporter about bringing the event back to the British capital for the first time since its inaugural edition and hosting it at the city’s Wembley Arena. “To have it at Wembley, such an iconic venue with so much history, it is going to be a great night.”

Asked if she expects politics or world affairs to play a role during the show, Ora told THR that after various terror attacks in London this year, she feels it is time to give people some entertainment and relief. “We just really want to focus on what the show is about, which is MTV Europe Music Awards,” she said. “We plan to bring a form of spirit and hope into a music awards show, especially being in London. There are a lot of things that have happened this year, and it’s really important to just be proud of where you are from.”

What can fans expect? “I love to talk,” Ora said, adding there may be “a lot of inappropriate jokes.” She also highlighted that “there are a lot of people who have done so many legendary things [on the EMAs stage], performing and also hosting.”

The awards show will air live across MTV’s TV, social and digital platforms.

The 26-year-old Kosovo-born Ora is a former coach on The Voice UK and The X Factor and has been the main judge and host of America’s Next Top Model this year. She told THR that this experience will help her with her hosting duties.

Ora also said she hopes that the show is “just going to really put another mark in the history books.” She is currently promoting her single “Your Song” and Avicii’s “Lonely Together” featuring Ora, plus she is gearing up for her next single release in October.

First held in London in 1996, the MTV EMAs will emanate from the U.K. for the sixth time. Edinburgh (2003), Liverpool (2008), Belfast (2011) and Glasgow (2014) were the other British host cities.

“Rita is a multi-talented star who’s been an MTV core artist for over half of a decade,” said Bruce Gillmer, head of music and music talent, Global Entertainment Group, Viacom. “She’s the perfect hometown hero to lead the 2017 MTV EMAs, which promises to be the year’s ultimate global music celebration.”

Avicii Teams Up With Rita Ora On New Banger “Lonely Together”


Avicii’s new EP titled AV?CI has arrived, and it features an explosive dance track with Rita Ora titled “Lonely Together.

It’s a far cry from Rita’s recent release, “Your Song,” off her forthcoming (debatable) album out some time in 2018. This time the pop star sings over the Avicii’s infectious production crafted with Benny Blanco and Cashmere Cat. It’s a summer banger to soak in before the cooler months creep in.

This sound really works for Rita. “Your Song” grew on me, but this is an instant hit right off the bat.

INTERVIEW: Tattoo Stories with Rita Ora


Rita Ora has returned with her first single in nearly two years, “Your Song.” The uplifting track, all about being in love, was written by fellow Brit Ed Sheeran and produced by Steve Mac. “Your Song” is the first taste of what’s to come from Rita this year, who last released an album five years ago in 2012 (her debut LP Ora).

During an Instagram live last month, Rita confirmed that her sophomore album is on the way, and that fans can expect its release later this year in the fall. She said, “The album is going to come out in November and it’s going to be major. I’ve been working on it for ages. There’s some amazing people on it and amazing surprises.”

Aside from putting an album together, Rita has been very busy with other projects in TV and film, including her role as Mia Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey series, her hosting gig on the new music competition show Boy Band, as well as the rebooted America’s Next Top Model, and she was a judge on BBC’s The Voice and The X Factor UK.

Now, Rita is focusing on her music career, and has kicked off this chapter of her career with “Your Song,” which she performed live during a recent visit to iHeartRadio’s studios in New York City. But while at iHeartRadio HQ, the 26-year-old also opened up about her 28 tattoos during an exclusive interview. These are Rita Ora’s Tattoo Stories. Read on below.

Rita Ora – “Slide” Calvin Harris Acoustic Cover | Elvis Duran Live


Rita Ora gave Calvin Harris’ hit single “Slide” an acoustic twist on Monday (July 17), covering the hit track for the Elvis Duran and the Morning Show.

With an acoustic guitar accompaniment, the British singer handled both Frank Ocean and Quavo’s parts on the Funk Wav Bounces Vol.1 song, really belting out the chorus at the end.

It’s a particularly notable song choice for Ora, as she and Harris dated from 2013-2014.

Speaking with Marie Claire in 2015, Ora said that time after their collaboration “I Will Never Let You Down” came out “everything started to go a bit weird. I don’t know if it was because business was mixed with personal or what.”

Rita Ora returns to music with new track Your Song!


Rita Ora has announced that she will finally return to the music fold with a new single titled Your Song – which was penned by super songwriter Ed Sheeran.

Considering it’s been written by the multi-platinum selling Divide creator, it’s no doubt got the word ‘hit’ written all over it. It’s the first single to be released from Ora’s untitled, forthcoming album,which is set for release for May 26. ‘I’m so excited to share that my new single Your Song is coming on May 26,’ Rita, 26, shared on Instagram. ‘Can’t wait for you guys to hear it!’ The singer also teased her collaboration with Ed a few weeks ago, sharing a short video of the two working and listening to music together.

Rita’s new music follows her a turbulent few years that saw her sign a new record deal with Atlantic Records after suing her previous label, Jay Z’s Roc Nation, for ‘orphaning’ her in an unfair contract.

?? 'Your Song' 26.05.17 ??sooooo excited!
