Rita Ora's Quirky 'Your Song' Video
Different! Rita Ora finds love in a corporate place in her offbeat 'Your Song' video.

The remix package for Rita Ora’s “Your Song” arrived this week and it includes a couple of gems. Thanks to winning, Spotify-friendly overhauls for Maggie Lindemann, Dagny and LAUV, Cheat Codes is this summer’s go-to production outfit. They work their usual magic on Rita’s latest (above) by upping the tempo and adding a non-invasive drop. It sounds a little familiar at this point, but the formula works and I honestly prefer this version to the original. Which is a little too understated for me.

More adventurous is Team Salut’s world music-tinged remix (below). The London trio transforms “Your Song” into something completely new with unrecognizable production and a verse from Nigerian singer Burna Boy. It’s summery and tropical and well worth a listen. The first taste of Rita’s debut/sophomore LP (it’s a long story) is shaping up to be something of a sleeper hit — recently cracking the top 10 in the UK. It will be interesting to see if the song, or a remix of it, can do some damage in the US. It’s certainly catchy enough.
