Rita Ora Collaborates With Music Legend Prince & Celebrates A Number 1 Hit!

May 12, 2014 | Daniella & Letisha Jones-Ellis

As you know, Rita Ora has been busy of late recording and putting the finishing touches on her second solo studio album, but did you know the Roc Nation artist had the opportunity to work with music royalty Prince?

Personally contacted by his team, the UK singer was left amazed and excited following the phone call, which was to lead to a collaboration that was to feature on her upcoming album due to be released this September.

Stating that this album is heavily based on love, Rita said “it took months of getting to know him [Prince], then an amazing song came out of it.”

That amazing song would be ‘Pink Champagne’, although due to the champagne breath that often results from drinking the fizzy stuff, Rita likes to refer to the Prince written song as ‘Champagne Kisses’.

Although Rita isn’t concerned with the number of features on her album but instead creating a body of art, working with Prince is definitely an achievement to be proud of and fans can see the rock and pop artist perform live on his UK tour between May 15th-22nd.

Rita’ current lead single from her upcoming album ‘I Will Never Let You Down’ is out now, with the single taking on a Whitney Houston feel. “She killed ballads but also had the ability to make you want to dance,” Rita expressed, which she certainly used as inspiration when performing her track in her new video. Written and produced by Calvin Harris, here’s the dance infectious result.

The number one single, ‘I Will Never Let You Down’ is available to buy today.
