Rita Ora has revealed details of her new single.
‘I Will Never Let You Down’ serves as the singer’s brand new track and features Calvin Harris.
“I can’t wait. I’ve been working on my new album for about a year,” She told Nick Grimshaw on BBC Radio 1. “The song I’m going to release features an incredible talent in Calvin Harris. It’s called ‘I Will Never Let You Down’.
“I actually think it’s one of the coolest songs I’ve ever heard, in my mind.”
Asked what it was like working with her boyfriend Harris on the song, she insisted: “Honestly, it was so natural. I wouldn’t have done it if it didn’t make any sense. I was never really against [working with] people I’m involved with [and] doing something personally.
“We were sitting at home, he started humming and then I started humming and then we hummed together!”
Discussing her forthcoming second album, Ora revealed she has collaborated with Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, adding: “We’ve got some really exciting stuff with Macklemore… there’s a lot of surprises on this record.”
The star’s debut LP Ora topped the charts in August 2012 and spawned the hit sings ‘RIP’, ‘How We Do (Party)’, ‘Shine Ya Light’ and ‘Radioactive’.
Meanwhile, Ora was confirmed alongside Paolo Nutini as part of the first wave of acts for this year’s Big Weekend, which takes place in Glasgow on May 24-25.
RIMMEL LONDON has announced that it is collaborating with singer Rita Ora on a limited-edition make-up collection which will launch next year. The range will include lip and nail products.
“I have always loved Rimmel growing up and it is so exciting for me to be able to work with such a cool brand,” said Ora. “I am absolutely obsessed with make-up and being adventurous with colours, so when I was given the chance to make my own collection with Rimmel it was like a dream come true!”
Rimmel has previously collaborated with Kate Moss on a range of lipsticks, and boasts both Moss and fellow model Georgia May Jagger as its celebrity faces.
“Rita is a real London girl and uses the streets of London as inspiration for her songs, like Rimmel uses the London Look from the streets as inspiration for its products,” said Rimmel’s vice president of global marketing, Friedemann Schmid. “With this new collection we are combining both the London street vibe with Rita’s amazing style.”
The collection will launch in February 2014.
Rita Ora has revealed plans to make “a bit of a stir” with her new album.
The singer is currently working on the follow-up to her 2012 debut ORA and wants to be more honest in the new material’s lyrics.
“I am definitely trying to make a wave and cause a bit of a stir,” Ora told Capital FM. “I’ve really built confidence these past three years.
“I can’t wait to be more honest on this record with my love life, things that I love and the people that I want to work with.”
She added: “There’s lots of hip-hop legends that I would really love to get on this record.”
Ora previously went out with Kim Kardashian’s brother Rob and is currently dating Calvin Harris.
The star recently became the new face of Madonna’s Material Girl clothing line.
