Rita Ora has likened her new single to tracks recorded by the late singer Whitney Houston.

The 23-year-old star's latest single, I Will Never Let You Down, will be the first release from her upcoming second studio album. 

Ora believes the track, which was produced by her boyfriend Calvin Harris, is reminiscent of some of the late legend's earlier work.

Ora said: ''I Will Never Let You Down is obviously a very important song to me because it's a love song, but it reminds you of Whitney, and that was the vibe we were on. We just wanted to feel good. 

"You know that feeling of How Will I Know with the synth? It just makes you feel happy ... that's what I wanted to create.''

Rita also confirmed she has collaborated with Macklemore on her new album.
