‘Shine Ya Light’ hitmaker Rita Ora has admitted that her second album will be “more directional” now that she’s older and is more sure of herself.
The singer was only 18-year-old when she began working on her debut, entitled ‘Ora’, and thinks she has grown in a way that will be reflected on her forthcoming sophomore effort.
She explained to Music News that she’s no longer experimenting with style as she has found her groove so will showcase her talents in a more certain way this time around:
“‘Ora’ was a funny situation. I was still figuring myself out. I was 18 and I’m 22 now. I was experimenting. This second album is more directional, much clearer. I definitely know what I want more and it’s pretty straightforward with what I’m trying to say with this second album.”
“It’s very clear and that’s why I had to make a new album. There’s still elements of pop in there, but pop from when it was pop – from the Blondie, No Doubt days to turning it into my love for ’90s hip-hop.”
