Behind the Video: Rita Ora – ‘I Will Never Let You Down’

I Will Never Let You Down

Rita Ora is back and ready to share her happiness with the world. The 23-year-old singer has unveiled the red-hot cover art for “I Will Never Let You Down,” the first single off her upcoming sophomore album.

Earlier this month, the blonde bombshell shot the video with director Francesco Carrozzini (Beyoncé’s “Jealous”) in L.A. The fashionista was all smiles as she went in front of the lens, modeling a green python dress, ruffly red top, and Chanel earrings and gloves. In one scene, she electrified in pink as she walked through red paint in her sneakers.

The uplifting love song, produced by her boyfriend Calvin Harris, reflects her current mood.

“I think this is the perfect song to launch my new album because I want it to be as personal and honest as possible and I’m happy right now,” said Rita. “I’m in a very good place. I really wanted people to just see how I felt and how I want other people to feel when they listen to my music, happy.”

Watch Rita spread some sunshine on set.
