Rita Ora Opens Up About Scrapped Calvin Harris Album Tracks

Published: Friday 5th Sep 2014 by Sam

Much ado was made about Calvin Harris forbidding ex-girlfriend Rita Ora from performing the single he produced for her at the Teen Choice Awards earlier this Summer.

However, in the midst of that melee, it was also quietly confirmed that the rest of the tracks the renown DJ had cooked up for Ora’s hotly anticipated new album wouldn’t be making the project.

And while many have speculated that the said tracks were culled due to Harris’ refusal for them to be placed, 23-year-old Ora has offered a response that doesn’t quite deny those reports – it instead puts a positive spin on the entire episode.

Her words below…

An excerpt from her interview with The Standard newspaper read:

I ask whether Calvin Harris, her writer and producer ex-boyfriend, from whom she recently split, refused to allow her to use certain tracks on her album.

“Obviously the obvious happened,” she explains. “We broke up. But I’ll Never Let You Down was made in such an honest space, even after we went our separate ways. It still represents what I was doing when I created it with him. It was a lovely summer song. It was the first time I’d written something really honest without anybody else’s input. Just his. It felt really liberating. But the songs that we did together didn’t make sense musically with the album because we did them a while ago.

Got to love the spin. Either way, we’re still excited for the album – which now boasts production from the likes of DJ Mustard and will.i.am. Are you?

  3. Timago September 5, 2014


    SMELLY FLOPLAND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Timago September 5, 2014

    I know this may sound like a very strange question, but did someone say FLOP?

  5. Timago September 5, 2014

    “I Will Never Let You FLOP” reached a floppy 77 on the Billboard 100.

    Now, that is quite a massive FLOP.

    Stay in the UK, Whora, along with your syphilis and weeping genital warts.

    We do not like you, you skanky beaotch!!!!

    “But the song’s that we did together didn’t make sense musically with the album because we did them a while ago” Delusions of grandeur indeed considering the real tea is that Oral can’t close her Kimberly sized walls together. Girl bye.

  7. Timago September 5, 2014

    Whora, you should really consider tightening up those floppy beef curtains and wiping up the copious amounts of discharge dripping from your rotten p****.

  8. TRUTH SERUM September 5, 2014

    I like Rita, she’s talented. To bad shes a man eater, itrs obviously bad for business.

  9. ENOUGH ONIKA September 5, 2014

    Here TGJ go again, giving attention to wanna be Hollywood trashy THOT’s… . Any Whora please, ain’t nobody gonna buy that sh*t anyway. Calvin played you as well, always giving you the sh*t tracks. Your album will flop cause no one is buying into you. Whack ho…

  10. LB September 5, 2014

    Will.I.Am though, this album has FLOP written all over it. How do you go from Calvin Harris to Will.I.Am? Hell even Mike.Will.Made.It is better, I mean GangBangerz is not amazing, it is still decent and that is Mike.Will.Made.It.

    Will.I.Am is good for a spur of the moment hit, not an album.

    • ENOUGH ONIKA September 5, 2014

      The ONE time I actually agree with you…

      • TRUTH SERUM September 5, 2014

        And he cares why??

    • ENOUGH ONIKA (NEW & IMPROVED) September 6, 2014

      What is this thing responding to me and where did it come from??

  11. LB September 5, 2014

    Anyway I thought Calvin Harris put a gag order on this b****, why is she still talking about him?

  12. CherylSoldier September 5, 2014

    Why does she keep saying she wrote it tho? She has no credit!

  13. Tits McGee September 5, 2014

    She is such a liar. Now Calvin’s tracks are dated?
    Lol! Calvin put down the hammer and forbid her
    to use anything he wrote, so back to the drawing
    board for Rita.

    Also, she keeps saying she wrote ‘IWNLYD’, yet
    Calvin stopped her playing the song. Stop lying
    Rita, you didn’t write fucckule.


  14. Yea ok September 5, 2014

    Just was on NB blog and saw pics of her with Tommy Hilfiger. Son. This girl is trash. Trash trash. I can’t wait for her to disappear

  15. Rosie September 5, 2014

    Calvin’s music is dated but you were just sucking him for tracks a few months ago. Oh.

    • Joan Rivers September 5, 2014

  19. Kylie Jenner stan!!! September 5, 2014


  20. Mother September 5, 2014

    She needs to stop living up to her ‘Whora’ moniker, maybe then she’ll be respected.

  21. FutureCIARA September 5, 2014

    She is such a whoore!! Jumping from dik to dik trying to pop off in these states!

  22. Sisqo is King September 5, 2014

    That’s it? we broke up?? why don’t you admit that you f**ked him over and now he f**ked you. Lesson learned.Stop f**king for tracks!!

  23. Joan Rivers September 5, 2014

    Rita Ora a.k.a. Rita Whora a.k.a. Rihanna’s understudy a.k.a. #industrypussy a.k.a. Jay-Z’s bustdown a.k.a. Irrelevant a.k.a. Sam’s & David’s mother

  24. UGH September 5, 2014

    B**** just admit that you spreaded your h***** simplex 1 & 2 and he scraped your s*** as a result. Keep spreading your wings (legs) & maybe you’ll fly to the to the top 666 in the USA b****.

  25. #idontseeher September 6, 2014

    girl please… i wasn’t excited before, and i sure ain’t excited now. #flop

  26. FrenchConnection September 6, 2014

    Don’t lie boo, you did him dirty and he got his money (the music) back. It’s time for the next d*** Rita.

  27. rita ora can win a oscar September 6, 2014

    She still making millions. Her adidas line is selling well. She will make a new denim line with Donna Karan. she has 4 movies coming out and IWNLYD is SOLD 1 Million copies WW. As long as she is making and generating millions, she is still wining haters.

    • Dev September 6, 2014

      She is featured in 4 films coming out. She is not a film seller nor a major acting star.
      Who even wears DKNY any more? I’m sure topshop will be selling more jeans than she is designing
      IWNLYD maybe selling millions and be her biggest (us) hit, but she can no longer sing it and will reap no rewards or have other hits from the writer/producer.
      Rob Kardashian had to keep quiet but Calvin Harris who is more bankable, well know and respected has to do no such thing. The fact that she’s saying that the songs make no sense is a lie as she had a release date and the dated that they broke up sometime ago whilst she was still gushing about being in love.
      Those songs will be released by Alexia Jordan and we will STILL be jamming to them as Jay – Z will ensure those hits don’t go to waste

  28. xedos September 6, 2014

    She must really did this guy dirty for him to take such drastic measures. biatch i’m scared of you.

  29. Lady Flopga September 6, 2014

    She’s a beautiful lady & she will be successful I can bet on that.
