Rita Ora compares new single to Whitney Houston...

Rita Ora says that her new single, 'I Will Never Let You Down' (produced by boyfriend Calvin Harris) is a reminder of Whitney Houston. Now I don't know about you, but the bits and pieces we've heard of the song so far is enough to confirm this statement as inaccurate.

Rita made her bold admission in Paper magazine's ‘Beautiful People Issue’ where she serves as their latest cover girl.

“It’s obviously a very important song to me because it’s a love song, but it reminds you of Whitney [Houston]. And that was the vibe we were on. We just wanted to feel good. You know that feeling of ‘How Will I Know’ with the synth? It just makes you feel happy; that’s what I wanted to create.”
I know vintage Whitney went through her pop phase but this song sounds nothing like a Whitney song. Rita's song sounds like the typical generic pop mush she's been putting out since her debut. She does not put out good songs so comparing her work to a legend is an insult. She also talks about her quest to conquer America, which I can't EVER see happening. She's like a hybrid of Jay Z's two main bitches. Why would America embrace a poor man's version with less star quality? She also confirms working with Prince and Macklemore for the new album, which sounds... respectful. Check out more photos from Rita’s Paper shoot below.
