Expecting a cover of an Elton John classic? Move on… ’cause Rita Ora’s ‘Your Song’ is a very different beast.
Rita Ora’s done relatively well for herself in Australia, with three top ten singles under her belt.
She’s also now in the top 20 with this new single, indicating that the extraordinary hard work she’s been putting in away from the music industry in the past few years (TV hosting, talent show judging, acting, designing etc) is now starting to pay dividends.
The clip’s cool; all happening in reverse, from the boardroom to the office to the car to the beachside.
And all in all, ‘Your Song’ is an entirely satisfying pop anthem. It incorporates those tropical flourishes that are so popular right now. But they’re wrapped up in a mid-tempo pop number that continuously builds throughout its three plus minutes.
