Ora: "It's got a lot of honest truth"

R.I.P hitmaker Rita Ora says she has been working hard to make her new album a "work of art".

The 23-year-old singer explained that she wasn't trying to line up big collaborations for her upcoming sophomore album.

Speaking to Fuse TV, Ora said: "It's got a lot of honest truth. It wasn't about collaborations for me - this album was about a work of art and a body of work from Rita. Everyone on the record is there for a reason.

"We have some great producers: DJ Mustard, Diplo's on there.

"I got the honour of seeing Prince work his magic in Paisley Park in Minneapolis. I honestly have to say it was probably one of the best experiences of my life. I want his whole wardrobe! He wrote this incredible poem that I've turned into a song."

Ora further explained that the video for the first single of her new album, I Will Never Let You Down, is reflective of her new attitude to music, saying: "I didn't want to think too much about it. I just wanted a couple of hot girls and wanted to just dress up and dance on the streets and basically feel free. That's what this album was about and that is what the video was about."
