Rita Ora Performs Two Tracks, Talks Upcoming Album & Jay-Z

The VEVO videos, recorded for the site's LIFT series, capture the London-based Ora performing the reggae-tinged "Shine Ya Heart," the Notorious B.I.G.-influenced "How We Do (Party)" and other songs likely due on her debut album later this year. In May, Ora told Billboard.com the long-awaited release was "nearly done," and will include "R.I.P.," a track written by Drake. Other contributors to the album include Ester Dean, The-Dream and Tinie Tempah.
