RITA ORA ANNOUNCES NEW SINGLE ‘ANYWHERE’ 10

Rita Ora made her spectacular return to music with the release of Your Song in May. Now she’s back with the follow up Anywhere, released on 20th October on Atlantic Records.

Rita co-wrote the song with Andrew Watt (the hitmaker behind Let Me Love You, It Ain’t Me and Havana)

Anywhere entwines Rita’s unmistakably modern soul with classic ’90s elements, and an exhilarating bassline. Rita wrote Anywhere when she was based in LA earlier this year. “I was in a routine, working every day, and found myself day dreaming about breaking out of the city and going on a road trip with my friends and never looking back.” This is Pop at its sweetest, most persuasive form of escapism.

Your Song has been one of the biggest singles of 2017. The comeback song re-established Rita as one of pop’s leaders, becoming her biggest hit across Europe. The track has amassed over 300 million global streams and is continuing to grow.

Your Song is now fast becoming a hit in America following a succession of high profile TV performances. Earlier this month Rita dazzled viewers of the Ellen Show with a stunning live performance of the track and has also performed the single on major shows including Jimmy Fallon, TRL, GMA and Teen Choice.

Rita is currently having her second top 10 hit of the year thanks to her recent collaboration with Avicii. Their melancholy dance hit, Lonely Together rocketed into the top 10 last month and is now giving Rita another streaming hit around the world.

All three singles will be on Rita Ora’s upcoming album due for release next year. The album includes songs Rita has worked on with Stargate, Julia Michaels and DFA.

Next month Rita Ora will be taking over Europe’s premiere music awards show. Rita will host and perform at the 2017 MTV EMAs live from London’s SSE Arena, Wembley on Sunday, November 12th.

Rita made her debut at the EMAs in Frankfurt in 2012 when she performed RIP and over the years Rita has collected eight nominations over the years.

The awards show will be broadcast live across the globe.

X FACTOR UK: SAM BLACK RETURNS TO REPLACE ANTHONY RUSSELL AT JUDGES HOUSES 8

Sam Black is set to make his return to The X Factor, joining Louis Walsh‘s Boys at Judges’ Houses!

Following Anthony Russell‘s exit from the competition due to personal reasons, Louis has decided that Sam is the man to replace him, despite leaving the show at Boot Camp.

Louis explained: “Anthony has been fantastic across the series, a great singer and performer who we are really sad to see go. I had to think for a long time who could take the place.

“Sam had a great reaction from the British public when his Audition aired. So I re-watched it and realised we missed a trick not putting him through atBoot Camp. He has that retro 60s style viewers will love. He’s really likeable and talented and I can’t wait to hear more.”

Sam – who caused a stir at Boot Camp by proposing to his girlfriend on stage – added: “Obviously, I feel terrible for Anthony because he is not only an amazing singer but also a lovely guy.

“He has even messaged me good luck. I really appreciate the second chance I’ve been given and I feel so lucky to get this opportunity. My family and I are over the moon.”

You can catch Sam in action when The X Factor hits Judges’ Houses on Saturday 21st October, 8.20pm and Sunday 22nd October, 7pm on ITV.
