British starlet Rita Ora has recently been stirring the ARIA singles pot with her vocal appearance on the UK No.1 DJ Fresh single ‘Hot Right Now’. That title couldn’t be more perfect for the 21 year old singer if the 1.7 million views on her new video in less than six days is anything to go by.
Sony Music Australia has launched the single at radio today in the hope that, like elsewhere around the globe, radio programmers will fall madly under the Ora spell.
Look there’s plenty to like… She’s got amazing smokey vocals that belie her tender years and she possesses a look that’s totally ripe.
But we have to admit to being a little underwhelmed by the chorus in this – and the fact it’s just the latest in a seemingly neverending line of inane ‘party all night’ pop tracks. Surely songwriters can find something else to wax lyrical about? No doubt it’ll be massive.
