Rita Ora Releases New Single ‘You Only Love Me’
Earlier this month, Ora teased that she would be releasing a new song soon, ahead of her third studio album. On Friday, fans finally got to hear “You Only Love Me” and watch a new music video.
The video starts with various celebrities (including Chelsea Handler, Lindsay Lohan, and Kristen Stewart) congratulating Ora. As Stewart says, “I just had the craziest dream that you were getting married, and I wasn’t there.”
The colorful music video goes on to show Ora getting ready for her wedding day, which ends in catastrophe. On the track, Ora sings that she’s “terrified” that her partner only loves her in certain situations. However, it sounds like it’s all in her head.
As Ora sings in one verse, “I can’t believe you look at me the way I look at you / ‘Cause no one’s ever loved me back the way that you do / I’ve been messed up a thousand times, but you make it right / And even on my darkest days, you show me the light.”
Ora Confirms Marriage to Taika Waititi
Rumors have swirled for months that Ora and her boyfriend, filmmaker Taika Waititi, had tied the knot. On Friday, as she promoted her new song on the UK’s “Heart Breakfast” radio show, Ora confirmed that she’s “officially off the market.”
“Putting out a new single and it really being inspired by where I’m at in my life, I knew the questions were gonna come,” Ora said, according to Page Six. She added of the music video, “I wanted to do a wedding that didn’t really go to plan … but that’s not to say that’s what actually happened.”
On the contrary, Ora said her own wedding was “perfect” and “exactly how I wanted it.” It was also “private,” but Ora added, “One day we’ll throw a big party.”
