Rita Ora's New Single Will Debut Next Week
Rita Ora is finally ready to unveil the second taste of her sophomore LP. Find out more.

Eyes rolled across the internet when Rita Ora announced that the follow-up to “I Will Never Let You Down” would debut on UK radio next week. The single has been delayed so many times over the past 14 months that it has taken on a quasi-mythical status among thirsty Ritabots. It turns out, the track does exist — but it’s not called “Testosterone” like many assumed (she mentioned the title during a red carpet interview back in November).

Instead, the cover and a 30-second snippet of a previously-unreleased anthem called “Poison” surfaced online overnight and — against all odds — the track sounds like it could be worth the wait. (If this is, indeed, her next single). “I think my poison is you,” the 24-year-old sings over a bed of synths. “I can feel you whisper and laying on the floor. I try to stop but I keep on coming back for more.” Say what you like about Rita and her never-ending quest for publicity, but more often than not, she delivers the goods musically.
