Rita Ora has dated the likes of Calvin Harris, Rob Kardashian and James Arthur over the years, and admitted some of the lyrics for her upcoming third record a follow up to her debut album ‘Ora’ – were thought up based on conversations with former flames.
She said: “The album is inspired by a few. There are little spurts of inspiration from conversations I’ve had with exes or boyfriends at the time.
“It’s like a new chapter because, to be honest, everything with my music was way more impactful for me than any relationship.
“There was that pure frustration and passion that’s really the core of this record.”
Rita has given a sneak preview to her pal Ed Sheeran, who wrote one of the tunes on the record, ‘You Song’, and he is said to be a big fan of the album.
She added to The Sun newspaper: “I have a huge girl anthem with some incredible females on there.
“I haven’t told anybody what yet but this rap feature is so exciting for me because I love this person.
“This song that I’m really excited about, Ed Sheeran loves as well. I’ve played loads to Ed. I really trust his opinion.”
Last month, Rita announced a 2018 tour, on which she is expected to play the second studio album, which is expected to drop in March.
Sharing the news with her fans – known as Ritabots – on Twitter, she wrote at the time: “Ritabots I’m coming for you! Can’t wait to play in your city Tickets on-sale Friday at 10am GMT”
The ‘Body On Me’ singer will kick off the run of dates at O2 Academy Glasgow, Scotland on May 11, before wrapping in Bristol, South West England on May 19.
