New Music: Rita Ora f/ J. Cole – ‘Love & War’

J. Cole and Rita Ora

Put your diamonds in the sky. Rita Ora duets with her Roc Nation labelmate J. Cole on “Love & War,” produced by Fraser T. Smith. The Roc stars go back and forth fighting “like the Navy,” but love wins out at the end of the day.

“I don’t want to fight anymore, can we just make love and not war?” sings Rita, while Cole throws up the white flag.

Rita’s debut album ORA drops August 27 in the U.K.

    @AEROL, Fools everywhere…!! always quick to draw comparisons between new blood and and old..leaves no room for others..this trend is sickening and there is a bunch of you a**holes everywhere…..we need room for diversity and also need to realise tht the more players we have in the game the better for us all..coz some of these artists get too comfortable with thte thought no one in there lane and can feed u wateva they want bt with a litu competition they pull there games up in order to stay where they are….so lesson of the day to you bored b*tches learn to intergrate…

    @The fool eradicator, agreed, the more players the better BUT nothing’s really groundbreaking these days… I’d rather have 1 legend, than 10 average ”artists”.

    @AEROL, I don’t really see anything the screams out Rihanna besides her hair color

    Her voice is perfect for the song, and Rihanna’s style and Her are completely different.

    The song needs a little more work, but yet hot !! I am downloading as I Type this Message !!

    STOP HATING

    @PopCritic, you rihanna fans are really annoying. Can this girl make her music without you navy stans throwing her name in everytime? Rihanna doesnt write any of her music, Rita does, so you all sound really stupid.
    I like the song. J cole is my baby and Rita is good too.

    @AAA, lol i think the same!!!
    i tried to like her music but really can’t.
    i don’t understand why every one is “hyping” her.
    except the fact that shes “related” to jay z.

    this business is big enough for rita and rihanna at the end of the day rita is living her dreams while haters are on here hating if u dont like her dont come to her blogs. her and rihanna are in two different lanes but at the end of the day, the have the same songwriters, management, publishers etc… you have to take what u can until you can do for yourself.go rita

    The only thing I hate here is that the album doesn’t have a release date in my country…even though it’s the one where Roc Nation started up.

    What’s a red, white, and blue American man to do?

    [Reply]

    Issa Reply:

    @Shutterbug, Buy the damn album from AmazonUK. That’s always an option. If you’re a fan, you’ll support her regardless of where her album is released.

    [Reply]

    Shutterbug Reply:

    @Issa, Then they’ll ask me to pay in pounds…and I don’t know how much the price would be in American dollars.

    Also, they’ll ask for several UK-specific pieces of information I can’t fill out because I’m an American.

    Guess I gotta wait till they do release it here in America.

    All Rihanna Fans Don’t Like Her Because You Are Scared She Gonna Take Rihanna Spot -.- You Can Like Rihanna And Be A Rita Ora Fan Chill

    [Reply]

    billionaire Reply:

    @tunechiheat3, Are you serious? We’re not afraid in fact we welcome her because need more on the playing to field to round out the competition & that’s thing we like competition because it makes us go harder for our Fav instead of 1 person with all the power which happened to Beyonce that’s why so many gravitated to Rihanna during the Rise of Rihanna. So welcome her with open arms but Rita’s problem is that she’s in Rihanna’s shadow which isn’t helping her to be discovered originally. Rita has the wrong timing & therefore her songs that has so much potential are falling flat! Everything must add up right time, place, songs = right career!

    The Rihanna comparisons KILL me. I think it’d kill some of y’all not to put her down every chance you get. Rihanna can’t be too pleased that her fans are such negative crabs. I’ve seen both of them live and uhh….let me tell you, Rita SINGS, not STRAINS. Anyway, I like the song but I really can’t be the only one who expected more from J. Cole. Ad-libs, though? Really?

  30. @wefounddrugs

    Okay everybody keep sayin the same shit, but overall it’s nice. boring, but nice. i liked rita when she came out with ‘youre only in it cuz its hot right now’ song. i think that if she waited and came out aroun like next january, then she’d be more relevant. and she’s more of a ballady type of singer anyway. I don’t think the pop life is hers. only her image.
