New Video: Rita Ora – ‘How To Be Lonely’

Published: Friday 27th Mar 2020 by Sam

Rita Ora skews cinematic in the action-packed video for ‘How To Be Lonely.’

Directed by Dave Meyers, the quirky clip is the first offering from the chart-topping Pop starlet this year and comes as she amps up momentum for her third studio album.

Grander in scale than most of Ora’s past offerings, the visual tells quite the tale.


Watch below…

We always appreciate videos with budget and drama – and this definitely delivered on both fronts. Very avant-garde.

The narrative was somewhat tricky to follow, so it’ll be interesting to hear more about its meaning.

Still, (in her key markets) Ora remains one of Pop’s most dependable hit vendors. While the timing of the release is a touch unfortunate (see: pandemic), hopefully the stars align and this morphs into another chart win for her.

Your thoughts?

    I always give credit where it’s due. She is very much shoved down our throats but this song and video was a masterpiece. Shout out to Billie Eilish though for inspiring the girls LOL.

    • I love big black c** March 27, 2020

      Oh no Billie emoish inspired nobody actually she just copied her style and ego from Avril Lavigne

  2. Clarks0o0ñ March 27, 2020

    She deserves the success basic lipa is enjoying

    Her songs are better than dua lipa’s song.

    • Only Facts March 27, 2020

      Aww when Don’t Start Mow drooped you said Dua was one of the main pop girls and you were a fan of her. But now that critics are hailing her album as a pop masterpiece (with NO FEATURES), and now that she’s predicted to hit #1, suddenly she’s basic? Aww. Sad she is not suffering the sophomore slump your fave did? ??? Where are canolas rescheduled tour dates?! Everyone has announced rescheduled new dates but her! Oh that’s right, it was canceled indefinitely! We love to see it!

      STREAM FUTURE NOSTALGIA FOR CLEAR SKIN AND PPE!

      • Only Facts March 27, 2020

        *when don’t start now dropped (damn autocorrect)

      • Clarks0o0ñ March 27, 2020

        Normani stans are rats. Lol
        Always comparing other artistes achievements with Camila’s achievements

        Gurl compare normani’s achievements with Camila’s achievements

        The fight is between Camila and normani

        They were both in the same girl group and u guys said normani was the beyonce of the group, the break out star.

        So pls compare normani’s achievements with Camila’s achievements , oh wait u can’t do that cause normani doesny have any achievements that’s why you guys are always longing to other artistes achievements.

        ???

        It’s sad.
        U stan a dancer with zero achievements.

        Stop clinging on to other artistes achievements

        Use normani’s “achievements” to attack Camila.
        Lol

      • Only Facts March 27, 2020

        You love comparing Normani to Camila. But let’s compare Dua and Camila since they’re more equally aligned. They both care out as solo artists at the same time and they’re both on their sophomore albums. Yes Canola has 2 #1 hits, but all of Duas hits are solo and her sophomore album is the most critically acclaimed pop album of 2020 so far and is projected to hit #1 WITHOUT your bundles, 5 different limited edition covers, 8 performances, and 2 features. Duas second album has ZERO features! Canola cannot stand on her own and is NOT a main pop girl. Get over it! You’re a LOSER and so is CAMILA! Last time I’m typing that lessors name on here

      • Clarks0o0ñ March 27, 2020

        “But let’s compare Dua and Camila since they’re more equally aligned. ”

        Dua and Camila are not equally aligned

        They were not in the same girl group for several years.
        The battle is between Camila vs. Normani .

        And Camila has beating normani at everything and more.

        Camila has even achieved more than dua

        Camila
        2 number 1 songs
        Debut album hit number 1
        Vma awards including video of the year . Dua has never won a vma award…..yet.
        Grammy nominations
        Havana and seniorita outstreamed all of dua lipa’s discography.

        Camila has a diamond single, dua doesnt.

        Camila has two songs with 1 billion streams each dua has only 1 song with 1 billion streams and she didnt write that song.

        Dua lipa’s most streamed song new rules, dua didnt even write the song. anytime u stream the song, money is going to other people instead of dua.

        Dua debut album hit number 27. Lol
        Dua has no number one song or number one album,…yet
        She has only 2 top 10 singles while Camila has 4

        The only thing dua has that Camila doesnt are Grammy awards and Camila will still win a grammy in future.

        The problem with u is, ur a fool with poor reasoning and u dont understand music

        Future nostalgia is in trouble, it may miss the number one spot.
        Same with dont start now.

        Both song and album may be blocked by the weeknd’s album and the weeknd’s song blinding lights.

        As I said earlier, stop clinging on to other artistes achievements to support ur arguments against Camila

        Use normani’s achievements to attack Camila.
        ??? oh that’s right u cant do that cause flopmani has no achievements.

      • Only Facts March 27, 2020

        Dua and Canola are equally aligned since they both became SOLO artists at the same time and they’re both on their SOPHOMORE albums!

        Why can Canola not stand on her own but the other pop girls can?! Where is Canolas scooter since she cannot stand on her own?

        https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=h8rRQLQBqvE WHERE IS IT?! Tell me where is her scooter!? Stand on her your own Canola Cabullshit

      • Clarks0o0ñ March 27, 2020

        Ur insane
        ??

        I dont care about any other artiste but Camila vs. Normani.

        That was the argument since last year.
        Why are u bringing dua into the picture?

        U didnt even know who dua lipa was last year.

        Even romance outpeaked dua lipa’s debut album by far

        all Camila’s albums have debuted in the top 5, dua lipa cant say this cause her debut album hit number 27. Lol
        Camila is still gonna be ahead of her

        Camila
        Camila (debut)- 1
        Romance- 3

        Dua lipa
        Dua lipa (debut album) -27
        Future nostalgia- ?
        ???

        U are getting too confident but u will be dissappionted when final sales numbers come out for future nostalgia.

        As I said earlier, the battle is between Camila and normani

        Use normani’s achievements to attack Camila.
        ???

    • I love big black c** March 27, 2020

      Hell yeah. Rita is da queen and dua lipoma is just a housemaid

    • XYZ March 27, 2020

      Nope, they aren’t. Dua’s album is actually very good. A thing you cannot say bout Rita Ora’s albums. Rita has some pretty good singles, but overall she is lacking something. To be honest, I still don’t know how she can still be around and get all those Jobs. But her Management is doing some hell of a good work

      • Clarks0o0ñ March 27, 2020

        U are saying dua lipa’s album is good cause other people are saying it.
        U have crowd mentality.

        People are even saying dua lipa’s album is better than lemonade and Taylor swift 1989 and rihanna anti . Lol

        Dont start now and physical are the only good songs on that album. The rest are just meh.

        Rita has better songs than dua.
        Poison
        I will never let u down
        Your song
        Girls feat cardi b, charli xcx , bebe rexha
        R.i.p

        And rita is a better stage performer.

      • Only Facts March 27, 2020

        Clarkson STFU! You’re PAINED at the fact Dua’s sophomore album is about to DEMOLISH Canolas. And Dua is doing it WITHOUT any features, without 5 different album covers, and tour bundles. I cannot breathe ????? We love to see it!!! Most acclaimed pop album of 2020

      • XYZ March 28, 2020

        You sound dumb. I say its a good pop album, because its a good pop album. You’re just here to annoy everybody on this blog.

        Rita may be a better performer, honestly, I dont care. Doesnt take away the fact that she is not that consistent and the girls song you mentioned is s***.

        And I would not compare this album to Anti or Lemonade, cause they are totally different concepts. If you’d like to compare it, you should do it to straight pop albums.

    • Doll Domination March 27, 2020

      Yet u bring camila and normani in every single post even it’s not related u r***** f u c k

      • PinotNoir March 27, 2020

        @Only Facts and @Clarksoon I need you both to distance socially on this blog. Scrolling down endlessly past your love/hate bromance is making giving us Corv19 symptoms. Get a room as soon as the pandemic is over and duke out your issues there. Please? ?

      • XYZ March 28, 2020

        TGJ needs to block them

  3. Only Facts March 27, 2020

    ATTN: everyone is announcing rescheduled tour dates except Canola Cabullshit ? Dua Lipa, Thomas Rhett Atkins, and JoJo are the latest to announce new dates. Where are canolas dates? In the words of Nene Leakes “Where is your scooter ?“?! ?? Tour is canceled indefinitely. WATCH!

    • Clarks0o0ñ March 27, 2020

      Dua lipa and all those people u mentioned are not filming a movie in the UK.

      Camila was filming Cinderella but filming was put on hold thanks to Corona virus.
      Camila =booked queen.

      Gurl be patient ,when Camila is done filming Cinderella, rescheduling of her almost sold out solo arena tour will be announced.

      She has to fine her filming commitments with the Cinderella movie before going on tour

      Meanwhile
      Normani hasnt seen the inside of the billboard hot 100 since November 2019. Lol
      Normani is on Twitter right now looking for who to block.
      ??

      She’s not booked
      No album
      No hit song in 2020
      No solo headlining tour
      No movie role

      Hold this L

      • Only Facts March 27, 2020

        Excuses excuses. The tour is not gonna happen. And Duas album is about to demolish canolas in sales. And DUA HAS NO FEATURES ON ALBUM! So take your L ??

      • Clarks0o0ñ March 27, 2020

        You will still take the L.

        U are mentally unstable
        U create these alternative realities in ur head and u believe them.
        Gurl go see a doctor.

        You will take these L in future dont worry
        ??

    • Clarks0o0ñ March 27, 2020

      Gurl u will take the L on opening night of the romance tour.

      I’m keeping all this comments from u.
      U have so much mouth right now but u will be silenced on opening night of the Romance tour

      Remember when u said radio was removing my oh my because of the dababy slapping a woman incident,

      My oh my has risen to number 7 on pop radio.
      More than 60 million audiences impressions.

      Take the L
      ?

      • Only Facts March 27, 2020

        Canola already took the L of life by being demolished by Duas sophomore album which has NO FEATURES! Not everyone can stand on their own ? When will canola stand on her own? Where is her scooter ? since she can’t stand on her own? Where is it?!

      • Clarks0o0ñ March 27, 2020

        As usual clinging on to another artistes achievements .

        Gurl use normani’s achievements to attack Camila.
        ???

        As I said earlier every artiste can be more successful than Camila except that ugly rat normani. ??

        Besides dua debut album peaked at number 27. Lol
        Camila’s debut album hit number one

      • Only Facts March 27, 2020

        Girl, everything is not about Normani. You cling to Normani but never compare Camilas stats to artists that are aligned with her. Compare Camilas second album to ANY of the main pop girls second albums….BROmance is the definition of a sophomore slump! Deal!! Camila is not going to happen! Camila is the only pop girl that can’t get a solo hit!!! Pathetic!

      • Clarks0o0ñ March 27, 2020

        Clinging on to normani?
        Lol
        Normani and Camila where in the same group for several years

        The argument was, who is the breakout star of the group

        Who is the beyonce of fifth harmony

        U said it was normani
        U said normani was gonna end Camila in 202
        U said normani was gonna dominate 2020

        ???

        “Camila is not gonna happen”

        Somebody with a 2 number 1 songs( both songs 1 billion streams each) and 6 top 20 hits is already happening

        Normani is the one that will never happen after all the celebrity endorsements and industry support. Lol

  4. I love big black c** March 27, 2020

    OMG!! Stunning!!! Totally!!! Bow down to Queen Ora and her super strong aura. Dua lipoma never will

  5. Onika The R***** Whisperer March 27, 2020

    The song is trash

  6. PinotNoir March 27, 2020

    Song needs an acoustic/piano version. For a sec, I thought blue-wigged Ora was gonna replace Katy Perry. Oh, and ALL those eggs could feed Africa. ?

  7. Jake March 27, 2020

    Her & Dua are bringing the bops, and the visuals! The American girls should take notes!
