Sean Paul confirmed that he recorded a reggae song with Rita Ora, and they might release it sometime in the future.
Sean Spills the Details of the Collab
Speaking with The Sun newspaper, Sean revealed, “We recorded a reggae song together. It is unconventional for her to do – I have never heard her on a reggae song before. She sounds dope on it.”
He continued, “I think it would really make a difference if we released it one day. It’s not on my next album but I do hope we can put it out. For me, a reggae song like that is a classic, especially with someone who is that big in the pop world who has never done reggae before. She killed it.”
Rita Stayed Busy in 2021
Rita’s last album was 2018’s Phoenix, but she hasn’t been totally quiet since. This year alone, she has collaborated with artists like Sigala on “You for Me” and more recently, Sam Feldt for the dance-pop track “Follow Me”. But that’s not all, she also joined forces with record producer Imanbek for their joint 4-song EP Bang, released in February.
Rita also admitted during lockdown that music has “always been [her] escape.” She shared, “I’m definitely all about making music at the moment and I’ve been like that for a long time. I can’t wait to put out another album and go on tour, I love performing live, it’s my favorite part of the job.”
As well, Rita expressed how she feels now that her music is evolving creatively, and she is defying genres. “You creatively evolve, you start wondering and feeling different things, that’s what you want to portray. I’m definitely not where I was at when I put out ‘Ora’, I’ve grown into myself as a woman.”
She continued, “People have their own vision of what pop music is, it’s a very vague thing. Pop music can be anything right now, it could be hip-hop, urban, it’s such a big, vast description of a genre. I’ve always thought pop was music that made me feel great, happy and takes me out of myself. I try and make people feel good when they listen to music, that’s what it’s about.”
