DJ David Guetta teases his next musical collaboration with Rita Ora at Jingle Bell Ball
RITA ORA has been talking about teaming up with David Guetta to record some new music.
Speaking backstage at the Capital FM Jingle Bell Ball, the French DJ, who has sold more than 30 million records worldwide, revealed how the pair are both up for a collaboration.
He said on Saturday: ‘I just saw Rita and she was like, “We should work together” and I was like, “Okay let’s work together”. I love her. We have been talking for years. One day it will happen, for sure.’
The 50-year-old’s most recent collaborative hits include Flames with Sia and Don’t Leave Me Alone with Anne-Marie, who also performed at the Jingle Bell Ball.
Meanwhile Rita proved why she is one of the world’s biggest stars as she kicked off her set at The O2 Arena with a powerful performance of Lonely Together.
By the time she moved on to Anywhere the crowd, which included her mum and sister, sung every word back to her. Rita finished her six-song set with her latest track Let You Love Me, from her long-awaited second album Phoenix.
After her performance the singer, who flew in from Germany for the set and out again, revealed that she is a huge fan of Halsey, 24, making her Jingle Bell debut on a bill that also included Liam Payne and Olly Murs.
‘I love her and I’d love to have a big girls’ night out with her and Anne-Marie, but I’ve got to go straight to Germany after this,’ Rita, 28, told Capital DJ Roman Kemp.
She also said she is looking forward to Christmas, saying: ‘It’s just lots of food, fun, everyone has an opinion, the drinks are flowing, just like a typical family.’
Recently linked with former Spider-Man Andrew Garfield, 35, Rita said she has had a fantastic year, with a billion streams for her records.
‘It’s crazy,’ she added. ‘I’m so happy because I just put my album out, and I haven’t put an album out in nearly six years so I felt like a brand-new artist even though it might not feel like that, but in that sense of just being so nervous.
‘It’s so nice to see the support and the positive energy that I’m getting from everyone online.’
