Rita Ora claims her Twitter account was hacked after failed bid to gain 100,000 retweets

Original tweet promised to reveal a new single if target was met

Rita Ora has claimed that her Twitter account was hacked after what appeared to be an embarrassing social media disaster.

A tweet from the singer’s account was posted on Friday morning (October 31) stating that if the message received 100,000 retweets then fans would get to hear a new song from the pop star on Monday (November 3). However, the tweet was deleted after just 2,000 of Ora’s four million followers responded to the request.

By the way my Twitter got hacked somebody is threatening to release new music I’ve worked really hard on. Nothing comes out until I’m ready.

It has yet to be confirmed if a new single will be revealed next week.

Earlier this year Ora was named as the latest coach to join The Voice, replacing Kylie Minogue on the panel for the BBC talent search.

The series returns in January 2015 with Ora set to take her place on the show’s trademark spinning chairs alongside Tom Jones, will.i.am and Kaiser Chiefs’ frontman Ricky Wilson.
