lonely together is not her song tho. but she could make acoustic or different version, like part 2.
then put it on her album.
the original is really mess with tuned vocal, doesn't even sound like rita at all. lol

hope this became smash. rita deserve more success.

Really enjoyed the medley. Good performance, although all Burberry everything definitely should have stayed in the early 2000s.

Even if it isn't her song, she could stil make arrangements to get it included on her album, even just as deluxe track, without it being an acoustic version, Pt 2. or a remix. Demi also got Instruction included on her album, even though it is not technically her song.

I get what you are saying about her vocals on the song though, since it is hard to hear it is her. But sonically these 3 songs fit so well together, that even if she doesn't add it to her album, I def. will add it to my iTunes once the album is released eventually :lol:

Such a great song. I think Calvin did her a huge favor by scrapping the album.

Anywhere entwines Rita’s unmistakably modern soul with classic '90s elements, and an exhilarating bassline. Rita wrote Anywhere when she was based in LA earlier this year. “I was in a routine, working every day, and found myself day dreaming about breaking out of the city and going on a road trip with my friends and never looking back.” This is Pop at its sweetest, most persuasive form of escapism.

Your Song has been one of the biggest singles of 2017. The comeback song re-established Rita as one of pop’s leaders, becoming her biggest hit across Europe. The track has amassed over 300 million global streams and is continuing to grow.

Earlier this month Rita dazzled viewers of the Ellen Show with a stunning live performance of the track and has also performed the single on major U.S shows including Jimmy Fallon, GMA and Teen Choice.

Rita is currently having her second massive hit of the year thanks to her recent collaboration with Avicii. Their melancholy dance hit, Lonely Together has now hit the top three and is giving Rita another streaming hit around the world.

All three singles will be on Rita Ora’s upcoming album due for release next year. The album includes songs Rita has worked on with Stargate, Julia Michaels and DFA.

So if she plays her cards right, and this becomes huge, she will have 3 succesful singles in UK/EU before the album is even out, nice :D

Anywhere better become a smash hit as its my favourite Rita Ora song, loving it so much more than all her previous singles and also bought it today on iTunes.

IIrc Calvin Harris had 3 successful singles before 18 months came out so this could be beneficial for selling the album. I hope there will be more songs like this though as its fantastic.

I get a "Do You Wanna Get A Way" by Shannon vibe.

Maybe that's why I love it so much.

I must admit I don't like it. Or actually, most of it is pretty good. The overused stuttering part with the chopped up, pitch-altered vocals (hard to explain but you know what I mean) is annoying and ruins the whole song for me, I hope they release a version without that part.

I get what you mean, but Jax Jones and Demi are with the same major (Universal), while Avicii is with Universal but Rita with Warner. So the only thing they could do is adding it as a album-only track for CD/download (like Clean Bandit/Zara), but she won't get SPS units for that song

I adore this song. I've loved everything she's released recently. I loved her on top model. Sad she only lasted a season.

I think they could have saved it for the remix. But although it's my least favorite part of the song, I still think it's a great song overall.
