Rita Ora and 2 Chainz share "the best friendship ever".
The 26-year-old beauty has worked with the rapper on her long-awaited second album, which also features the likes of Ed Sheeran and Charli XCX - and Rita has admitted she relishes spending time with the hip-hop star.
She shared: "I love him.
"It's the best friendship ever. He's the coolest in the world. People are so surprised but me and him are actually friends. He's like my homey."
Rita said she's a fan of his music and is glad they finally got to work together on her new album.
She told The Sun newspaper: "He knows so much and I guess he has lived through a lot. He's one of my favourite rappers in the world so I'm happy we finally got to do something."
This comes shortly after Rita revealed she approaches her ambitions "like a man".
The singer has previously spoken about her long-term aspiration of building her own empire - but Rita admitted that, unlike Tyra Banks, her co-star on 'America's Next Top Model', she isn't able to multi-task.
Asked about her ambitions, Rita shared: "I just really want to make something so that I can retire and be all right. You know what I mean? My parents have always been really futuristic humans, always thinking about the future. And we were just raised like that. I didn't know what I meant by empire when I was just starting out. I didn't know.
"I did 'America's Next Top Model' and Tyra, she created an empire. I really respect people who do that because it just makes you look really multi-tasking, you know?
"I mean, to be honest, I can't even pass my driving test, let alone start an empire. I'm like a man: I focus on one thing. No offence. I've got a bit of an Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder about this."
