Rita Ora may not be hosting America’s Next Top Model anymore but she’s still dedicated to her first job title, International Pop Singer. Over the years, I’ve never connected with her music. Something was always off about her music and it never quite reached its potential. Her being dubbed a ‘Rihanna-clone’ early on might have contributed to it but I think the last couple of years she’s found her own identity. Her latest single Anywhere is a lush, chill, downtempo dance track with soft synths, steel guitar riffs and a stuttering bass line groove. The melody and finger snaps create a wonderful soundscape of traveling vast and expansive lands. It’s my favorite song she’s recorded to date.
