Tha-Hotness Right Now!
Charlotte Humphries / Music Writer
One of my favourite new-comers to the music scene has to be our very own Rita Ora, acclaimed to be the UK’s answer to Rihanna, she epitomises the bohemian goddesses great looks and style but this señorita has put her own fresh stamp on the music scene.
I first discovered her through her collaborative hit ‘Hot right now’ with DJ Fresh, as a huge Fresh fan I was bound to enjoy the song no matter who he collaborated with but Rita’s following singles ‘RIP’ and ‘Hot right now’ have truly confirmed that she is my new girl crush. Everything from her soulful urban sound to her impeccable style to her friendship with the King and Queen of R&B, Jay Z and B, makes me ooze with envy at every mention of the 21 year-old, Albanian born star.
Added to all this Rita knows her hip-hop history, her latest single ‘How we do’ is a tribute to the late, great notorious B.I.G’s ‘Party and bulls**t’. However she manages to put her own, unique spin on the song making sure everyone associates it with her. It’s a great song and I think it’s an essential part of 2012’s summer soundtrack.
I for one can’t wait to hear more from this girl, she is definitely one to watch!
