Artist: Rita Ora
Label: Roc Nation/Columbia Records
Rita Ora grabbed everyone’s attention when she featured on the single Hot Right Now but the twenty one year old his back with her debut single R.I.P.
There is a real superstar feel to this track as it was penned by Young Money and Drake while Tinie Tempah features on the track and you can tell as there is slickness to the track.
The synths are on full blast while the dancey backbeats really do bring this track to life, there is a fantastic instrumental version on the single.
It’s quite a sultry vocal performance from Rita Ora as her vocals more than stand up to the very heavy backing track.
It’s not hard to see what Roc Nation are so excited about this artist as she has a real sass and sexiness about her, and this really come through in this no nonsense track - it’s only a matter of time before she starts being compared to the likes of Rihanna.
As we get to see and hear more of Rita is would be great to see the production stripped back a little so her vocals really can take centre stage.
There is a very powerful voice in there and it will be great to hear it in full flow. But with the likes of Roc Nation and Jay Z in her camp there is only one way Rita Ora’s star is going to go and that is up!!
