Rita Ora Recruits Prince, Gwen Stefani, For New Album

Rita Ora has a pretty booked up schedule ahead of her. In addition to filming her part in the upcoming movie adaptation of 50 Shades of Grey, the singer is also working hard on her sophomore album, but on the plus side she has been getting help from some of the best in the business to bring her second album to life.

Rita has described both Prince and Stefani as her biggest influences

We're not exaggerating when we say 'the best' either, because Ora has been working with the one and only Prince! The 'Radioactive' singer revealed recently that she and the legendary Purple One have been in the studio together, but without getting specific she only went as far as saying the pair have "done some music together."

"I have met him and I have had the honour of being in the same studio as him," she told The Mirror. "We messed around with some music and you know, I can't believe he can play so many instruments. All I can say is that we've definitely done some music together."

If that wasn't enough, Ora has also been teaming up with No Doubt's leading lady Gwen Stefani for at least one track and has also recorded music with her current boyfriend Calvin Harris. The singer went on to tell the paper that the album will be heavily influenced by pop, but did admit that some of the songs she penned herself are "revealing" and offer some insight into her personal life.

"I love pop music and I'm a pop singer," she continued. "So it's just pop music with a lot more honesty in it. There are a lot of revealing lyrics in there."

The singer went on to promise those still eagerly awaiting the follow-up to her 2012 debut, Ora, that her sophomore effort will be in stores soon, although she failed to give an exact date as to when we can expect to hear her still-untitled album. She said, "It's so good, it's literally done. I've got a few things I want to tweak and then I'm done."
