Rita Ora debuts the studio version of “Roc The Life,” a song she has performed on numerous occasions that is expected to appear on her debut album, ORA (Aug. 27). She grabs The-Dream, a co-writer of Rihanna’s “Lemme Get That,” to add his signature “eh” to the background.
I’m not sure if the people at Roc Nation assumed Rita would skate by with her edgy looks, but she’s in desperate need of better songs. “R.I.P.,” “How We Do (Party)” and “Roc The Life” are all underwhelming for someone possessing Ora’s pipes.
If her music career doesn’t work out, Rita could indeed fall back on her good looks–the modelesque singer posed for the 90s issue of The Hundreds.
