Rita Ora drops ‘Phoenix,’ collabs with Rudimental on new song

“Summer Love” will also appear on Rudimental’s forthcoming LP.

Rita Ora finally dropped her sophomore album, Phoenix, last Friday.

The record collects 16 ear candies, including favorites such as “Anywhere,” “Girls” and “Cashmere.” But the album’s highlight is “Summer Love,” a collaboration between Ora and UK electronic act Rudimental. It’s got that laid-back, summer party vibe that makes you want to clock off work, head out with that special someone and let the good times roll.

“So my summer love, keep me high / I’m all alone, won’t ya stay a while / Summer love, by my side / We could rule the world, just you and I,” Ora sings soulfully on the chorus as Rudimental’s unmistakable UK-garage-meets-pop production bubbles underneath.


“Summer Love” is also set to appear on Rudimental’s upcoming third studio album, A Toast to Our Differences, out January 25.
