Rita Ora proves that blondes have more fun in the video for “I Will Never Let You Down,” the first single off her upcoming sophomore album.

Directed by Francesco Carrozzini (Beyoncé’s “Jealous”), the chic, yet simple clip features gorgeous black-and-white and color shots of the British singer as she dons a designer wardrobe and dances alongside two blonde women.

The uplifting song, produced by Calvin Harris, was inspired by Whitney Houston.

“It’s obviously a very important song to me because it’s a love song, but it reminds you of Whitney,” Rita told Paper. “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.”

See Rita strut her stuff in the fierce and fashionable clip.

Three years after the release of her 2011 debut The Night the Sun Came Up, Dev makes a sassy return in the video for her Hit-Boy-produced single “Kiss It” featuring Sage the Gemini. The Cali singer, who took some time off to focus on motherhood, stars as a suburban housewife, while a shirtless Sage caters to her every need by mowing the lawn, pouring her a drink, and filling the pool.

Dev is currently working on her EP Bittersweet July, due later this spring.

“It kinda covers a lot of growth and new experiences that I’ve been going through. Some stuff is really in your face like ‘Kiss It’, some is not so obvious,” she told Rap-Up TV. “I went a little bit more melodic this time around. I feel like it’s a little bit more personal than the last one.”

See Dev have her way in the cheeky clip.
