Rita Ora Walks Out Of Interview
Rita Ora stormed out of an interview about being asked about ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris.

Remember when Calvin Harris produced Rita Ora‘s sophomore album (well, most of it) but then took all of his tracks back after they broke up? (He actually went as far as banning her from performing the ironically-titled “I Will Never Let You Down” on television). Well, before all that went down, the Brit announced “Get A Little Closer” as the LP’s second single and even added it to her live set. Fate intervened but the track has now surfaced online — albeit in a remixed form.

If the Imanos & Gramercy overhaul is any indiction, “Get A Little Closer” is a lost gem. The duo, who recently remixed Jessie J‘s all-conquering “Bang Bang”, puts a winning dub-step spin on the club banger but the original’s ’90s house keys and drum & bass influences can still be heard. The remix is official, so perhaps the track will eventually see the light of day after all. Fingers crossed. Check out Rita’s lost hit after the jump.
