Rita Ora releases ‘You Only Love Me’

Track is first from forthcoming album

2023 marks a new era for Rita Ora, one of the most successful British female artists of the 21st century, as she releases her new single, “You Only Love Me,” via BMG. Co-written by Ora and produced by Lewis Thompson, the track is inspired by her personal experience of feeling vulnerable at the very start of her romantic journey.

“You Only Love Me” is the first track to be lifted from the singer-songwriter’s highly anticipated upcoming album. It is also Ora’s first release since inking a partnership with BMG, which will see her own all her future master recordings and enjoy artistic control in a way that she hasn’t had previously.

The accompanying music video for the single was directed by acclaimed creative Charlie Sarsfield and shot in the LA suburbs.

“With ‘You Only Love Me’ and my upcoming album, I wanted to capture the vulnerability I’ve experienced as I opened myself up to love and entered a new phase of life,” Ora says. “Learning to let go of the past to make way for new experiences is a deeply personal process, and one I felt compelled to document through my music – the journey was not always easy, but I’ve come out of it stronger and filled with more love than I ever thought possible.”

Ora’s multi-Platinum music career has won her commercial and critical acclaim with 13 UK Top 10 singles and four UK No. 1 singles. She holds the record for the most UK Top 10 singles by a British female artist. In the US alone, her acclaimed singles and star-studded collaborations have earned her a No. 3 Billboard Hot 100 song, seven Top 10 hits on Billboard’s Dance Club Songs Chart, five of which reached No. 1, and six Top 20 singles on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs Chart.
