ROC Nation have rolled out the red carpet treatment for latest priori (and reported Rihanna replacement) Rita Ora.
Last week saw Jay Z personally launch the 21 year old and her Stateside single ‘Party & B*llshit’ at the US’ biggest radio station. Today sees the premiere of the Brit beauty’s first official UK single ‘R.I.P’.
Crafted by an all-star cast, Drake penned the track, which was co-produced by both Stargate and Chase & Status. What’s more, fellow Brit Tinie Tempah features.
Does it live up to the hype? Find out after the jump…
Gritty, edgy, and hard-hitting, the track does a commendable job positioning Ora as an International entity, while retaining a quintessential aura of “British”.
What Ora may lack in vocal prowess is negated by convicted delivery (see: swag) and stellar production; which together with the song’s anthemic chrous and solid feature, easily makes for potential smash.
