Music: Rita Ora Gives New Single “Your Song” An Afro-Pop Treatment

Its no news that Afropop has birthed a generation of international artists who now recognize the benefits of its dancehall melodies.  And Rita Ora is the latest to jump on that bandwagon flowing the likes of Alexandre Burke, Eugy & Skepta. The British superstar’s brand of pop might stand her apart from other artists but even she couldn’t resist the Afropop trend.Despite the Jay Z co-sign in 2009, Rita Ora has struggled to reach international stardom so whether this move would help is yet to be known. Her latest single, “Your Song” was released last month with a video but the aesthetically satisfying video has only done so much to make the single viral. Her latest project however, sees her delve into the Afropop territories through a remix for “Your Song” featuring Nigerian dancehall star, Burna Boy.Team Salut remakes the beat for “Your Song” by placing more emphasizes on the drums and forces the Electronic Dance Music riffs to play second fiddle to the pacey Afro drums. This elevates Rita Ora’s already bright and peppy original to uplifting floor-filler. Burna Boy features on the second verse continuing the feel-good affair with endearing lyrics. See visual audio of the single below.
