Discussing the album's impressive cast list, Ora said: "I can't believe how lucky I've been to work with these amazing people – we've all clicked and had such a good time in making my album."

Ora, 21, broke through when she provided vocals on DJ Fresh's drum'n'bass hit 'Hot Right Now', which reached Number One in February. Her debut single 'RIP' came out in May and also made Number One. She will release her next single, 'How We Do (Party)', on August 12 – scroll down to watch the video.
