New Song: Rita Ora – ‘Roc The Life’

RITA ORA THAT GRAPE JUICE 1 New Song: Rita Ora   Roc The Life

Sure to send much of her fan base into frenzy tonight, minutes ago saw the official release of Rita Ora‘s ‘Roc The Life‘.

Arguably her most chart friendly effort thus far, the mid-tempo number sees Ora pay homage to her ROC family by way of slick production and even slicker lyrics- akin to Beyonce’s ‘Hollywood‘.

Listen below…

Well produced without ever sounding overworked, ‘Roc’ is easily the best cut Rita has spawned since her debut back in February.

We say this, because while ‘How We Do’ ticked many a Hot 100 designed box, it lacked the personality Ora serves in abundance with ‘ROC‘- channeling the young, hot and decadent vibe she has only been able to give off aesthetically… until now.

In short, by way its her easy on the ear vocals and infectious melody, we see no reason ‘Roc’ shouldn’t mark Ora’s first US smash hit if handled correctly.

Handled in a way which sees Rita serve a video strong enough to push the single in case live performances fail to do the trick.

A video we’d say should draw on Janet Jackson’s You Want This‘ for inspiration, a pastel piece with the sole purpose of presenting Rita as the premium girl next door.

Fresher, chicer and friendlier alternative to the now ‘R rated’ Rihanna.

Not sure what we mean?

    I was thinking the same thing. I want to try and like her musically, but it’s just not happening for me. This song was o.k., but it didn’t make me jump out of my chair like, “Hell, yeah Rita!” And, I also agree that she’s boring. It’s like she’s just there filling up space. She doesn’t have that “IT” factor as you’ve said.

    If she was as talented as her fans claim she wouldn’t need to speak/ use autotune in all her songs. All this song will od is get people t ochange the station, its a definite flop.

    Also, Rita is not really super great like everyone claims. But she can do one thing, sing acoustic versions of her songs. She has no stage presence, no swag, no otiginality, no coreography and nothing distinct about her. Whenever she sings a non acoustic songs she sound awful, she is nothing special.

    An amazing artist can paint a stupid picture just like A great singer can make a stupid song. And Ritas only song that had potential was RIP…. #SMH

    About time we heard the studio version of Roc the Life. It could do well over here if it’s promoted better. Rita seems to little promo over here compared to the promo she does in the U.K. The most How We Do got was her GMA performance which was pointless because her targeted audience doesn’t even watch that show. Besides, Radioactive has been confirmed as her second U.S single and How We Do is her second single in the U.K. Roc the Life could be third single world wide.

    Well if Rita is slaying then i suppose Rihanna
    and others or Killing it. But i say give her some
    time and she too can build herself up, but when
    the Bee Hive gets finished with trying to butcher
    Rihanna’s career to try and save Grace for Rita
    then a great young artist will be worn down before
    she even gets started real good.
    My goodness Jay hired Rita in 2009 what in the
    world has Rita been doing from 2009 until right
    now? Thats going on 4 years, ohhhhh i know
    Rih did the collabs with Chris and that pissed
    Jay off and promoting Rita heavily is Jay’s way of trying
    to control not only Rihannas career but her personal life
    which is hers to live also. I see you Jay you or trying to
    protect Rihanna from all of those wolves that is out there trying to be her down fall.uhm huh…i see…then there beyonce pissy cause she wants all of the shine and will not share it with “bic less on Rita or Rihanna.

    She has had promotion. She has had her picture taken, for glamour magazine by patrick dermachilier. She has hit up every radio station, both pop and urban, performed dozens of shows and showcase, she has been in vibe magazine, Had Jay take her to z100. Appeared on gma and that is an important TV show to go on, it whups the today show in ratings. That is why they fired Ann Curry. Promotion cost money and as she is not a global act, where is the money gonna come from.

    She has had more than enough time and promotion on this LP and track. HER VOICE IS WACK, SHE CAN’T SANG AND she does not sound like a star.

Rihanna is so kind, she is kind enough to give the songs she rejected to Rita Flopa. Don’t ever say Rihanna never gave you anything Rita Flopa, besides giving people a reason to talk about you, she is also giving you her rejected songs, clothes, album covers etc.

    In short, by way its her easy on the ear vocals and infectious melody, we see no reason ‘Roc’ shouldn’t mark Ora’s first US smash hit if handled correctly.

    (REALLY!, even the Macarena was more infectious than this song and that was a horrible song).

    This is so bad for her though.

    I ca nimagine Rihanna’s voice and it goes perfectly with it. It could go On Rated R, she could use the coreography from the loud tour Rude boy performance. Rita needs personality.

    It has its strong points but is basic and weak most of the time.

If “How we Do” which is actually a really good upbeat song can’t get into the top 20, then this song sure as hell will not see the light of day…but then again it may just surprise us…anything can happen.

    This does not sound like an American produced, let alone an Alister. It sounds like a dude from the UK doing it, in his mama’s council flat with a home recording mixer – like he pressed – insert rock guitar.

    There is nothing there! Jay Z is only hanging on, frantically scrambling to offload to FORCE into accept Rita, to save face. Cos it makes him look bad, everyone was waiting to see if he could make another Rih, and he cannot. So he now looks like the bum failed executive. I think Columbia are gonna pull the plug on that whole roc nation, cos they ain’t popping off over there. They might need Rih to come help clean up house.

    No one on that label is a hit and they keep spending Columbia’s money without profit on these acts.

    Kelly, just because I like a certain song doesn’t mean you will like it and vice versa, that’s what’s so wonderful about being able to have our own opinions.
    Secondly, what’s the rush? She’s working on her craft just like all singers & performers should be doing. You should commend her for doing that instead of her releasing rushed material just so that she could show up at #1 on the charts just like some other music artists do.

    kelly Replied:

    She is not immune. ” what’s the rush ”?Time is money is the music business. She is a waste of every time and money.

    You are meant to work on your craft during artist development, not when you are trying to get money from the public. People want a finish product, not someone trying to find there feet. She was not ready for the deal 3 yrs ago, and if JAY ZA WOULD have auditioned her – as he did Rihanna, they would of seen, that she is not ready……..or right.

    You see Rihanna worked with those producers for a year making demo’s and rehearsing. They already HAD PON DE REPLAY AS A DEMO SONG – THAT PROVED TO BE A HIT. Rih came to her audition with a future SAMSH HIT – SHE WAS READY.

    This girl……none of that. They thought a blonde white girl could do the Rihanna. They are wrong.

    If anything, Rih got signed at 16 and had an LP out at 17 – she was the rushed, but she had the magic to make it happen. This is BUSINESS IS ONLY ABOUT NUMBER # 1 – that is all they care about. They only care about number 1’s and making money. They don’t care about talent, as you can make money without talent, now. If they cared about talent, they would be music teachers.

    JAYZ is only doing this for money, he is not doing this cos he cares about Rita Ora, personally. If loses him, he WILL kick her ass to the curb. The other artist who serve up number 1’s are the ones who don’t get dropped. Simple.

    That B*tch Replied:

    Up until a few months ago Rita Ora was not getting any promo. She had no music videos, no single releases, no photoshoots, no magazine covers, and no interviews so how much money could have really been spent during that time where everything was basically up in limbo? I’m sure it wasn’t much. And yeah you’re right about #1’s being important in the music industry but what’s the point if you have a bunch of number #1 singles yet you can’t translate tthose single sales into album sales? A lot of artists with #1 singles can’t seem to do that, so in my opinion I see nothing wrong with her trying to make sure she has everything together.

    She is no fashionista just a fashion victim who is overstyled.

    She cannot dance, she looks old, wrinkled and haggered.

    Her music is garbage – it cannot even touch Carly Jespson rae.

    She is just a Forever 21 version of rihanna – plus lines around the mouth and eyes.

    Go back to the drawing board, Jay Z – and I do not mean with Rita ora. I mean with Roc nation. This ‘label ‘ was not thought out properly at all.

    They do not have the right executives and A&R working there. Jay, Jay brown and Ty ty DO NOT HAVE A CLUE HOW TO RUN A LABEL. If was run by Kareem biggs and Damon Dash. Sony is gonna pull the plug on this WHOLE ‘LABEL ‘.

    There is not a single platinum act. All it is, is a label filled people who wannabe rihanna ( willow, alexis jordan, rita ora ) Alicia Keys ( Bridget Kelly and melanie fiona ) And drake ( JCOLE )

    No one that label has star quality – more like tribute act. ROC NATION IS DONE!

    Also, the african american slang, that Atlanta born The dream, does not sound right when Rita says. She is a white woman from London, so is sounds odd when she says black american slangs. She cannot swag the words, cos she not black girl from ATL or BK or Chi town – even island chick can swag.

    You know, when white people try and use black slang and they sound weird – like they are not saying it right. That Rita. Rita sound like a 45 old white woman trying to imitate a 19 yro blck girl from Inglewood. Also she sounds like Posh spice, when she tried to to an urban track, using black slang words It weird when these old white women do it.

    Rita reminds of that kid in school who wanted to be cool SOO bad, always buying what the so called cool kids would wear, listen to and watch the things they did, but was rejected every time. That’s Rita to me, and that’s why the little fans she has can like to her (i.e. Samantha) because they were also one of those kids. Anyway songs sh*t as usual. Trying to be something she’s not (Interesting and cool) with no real meaning and solely made for radio (or elevator background noise), which ever plays her most. 2012 is a sh*t year in music.

    I kinda liked Rita Ora more than Rihanna. This girl seemed genuine, and she has live singing talent. Nice Song!

    OK, Sam I don’t know how much Jay Z, beyonce and Rita are paying you… but dude this new song is a direct RIP from Rihanna’s Breaking Dishes – right down to the semantics and lyrical flow: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hHjUcpXvlyA

    What audience are they trying to get for Rita? Is it different for the US vs. UK? I really think Rita’s vocals are more RnB, not Pop…She needs Beyonce kinda songs, not saying she’s at Beyonce’s vocal level, but I think that sound suits her better than this sound….Wish her luck though…I really like the RIP song a lot though

    As I listen to 702, Monica, , Faith evans, Monifah, Kut Klose…..she is not RNB. She is not pop either – not the American pop we are use too.

    She is acoustic guitar based FOLK. that is Right! I know it is boring, unsexy, unglamorous and…..well, not cool, but that is all she is.

    The live version sounds a 1000x better.

    They sucked the soul out of the song with the studio version.

    Those runs she does live are everything.

    I want her to win, but like everyone else I’m confused with the direction of her music. She needs better material.

    Rihanna can sing. JLO cannot sing. However, JLO music circa 1999 – 2003 was better than anything Rita Ora has. Plus jlo was beautiful, glowing, booty real swag and she can dance.

    I’m real, if you had my love, jennie from the block, Play, All I have, Ain’t it funny, love don’t cost a thing,Waiting for tonight, etc….. When you look back JLO was a much better rnb pop star than half the crap that is out now.

    In fact, I’ma say it ! JLO is better ARTIST THAN RITA ORA

    LOL, that is exactly what I was thinking – this song is even more mediocre than RIP and How We Do. They aren’t bad songs, they just aren’t good ones and are mostly eminently forgettable. I did get How We Do stuck in my head for a few days but it got old very fast and that “party and b*******” line is cringingly bad. She has no identity of her own and looks like a mashup of Rihanna and Gwen Stefani without Rihanna’s swag or Gwen’s talent. Not sure this will do well even in the UK, its too bland.

    Rita’s song was okay. I don’t think it beat R.I.P though. and why does janet look so stiff in that video? I know she can move better than that.

    don’t know why but the live version is so much better, i mean i guess it was the live guitars that made it sound alot better, take away some more of the electronics and add instruments and it makes it better.

    I mean….some people may just be commenting on image, but other people aren’t, including myself. This sounds exactly like a song Rihanna would record and her vocal delivery sounds a lot like Rihanna as well. Just from listening to the production, melody, and delivery, it brings to mind Rihanna.

    And it seemed fake, but they released the rigt singled (other than shut up and drive)
    Even though she called herself bad she wasnt trying as hard as Rita or going as far.

    Rita is like Rated R + Loud (which just happens to be just like talk that talk!

    I have to agree with the masses, the track is weak! It lacks any kind of punch and hr vocals are pretty lackluster, it would’ve been better if she rocked out a bit at least.
    I also hate the cover, why is she forcing her hair over one eye? Who approved this crap?

    How many singles and Glossy expensive videos does it take to prove you are a star?

    It only took Rihanna her demo and one cheap video to prove she is a superstar.

    I know what ROC THE LIFE is meant to be. It is mean to be a cheap knock off of Rihanna and Young Jeezey, Hard.

    proves the point that rihanna who her many haters calls out of her given
    name more then they call her RIHANNA her given name, is showing
    their hate and meanest toward Rihanna because rih is leading the pack
    where the black girls or concerned with sales and all things musical and
    for that along Rihanna will forever keep haters VOTING HER NAVY DOWN.
    The navy knows that the down votes or the ones to count because we know

    I know you guys dont like rihanna but u can’t seriously sit here and think its cool that roc nation is giving her all these rihanna bsides. What makes it worst is despite being a better vocalist she sounds bored and dry. Stop gassing this hot mess of an album and talk about why ddn’t they give this girl her own sound. She’s a marketable act with a lot of potential but this first album is a hot ass mess.
