I’m done waiting on the U.S to catch up. Rita Ora‘s Phoenix is a great pop album full of radio pop gems, synth-heavy bangers and genuinely enjoyable bits of balladry.
It may not have broken any new ground, but it comes loaded with bops: “Anywhere,” “For You,” “Let You Love Me,” “Your Song,” “Lonely Together,” and honestly I could go on.
“Only Want You” is another one of the album’s best moments. And thankfully, she’s selected it as the next single from the campaign. The release comes with the addition of R&B musician 6LACK on the bridge.
Was it needed? Certainly not. Does it take away from the song? No. His addition gives the song instantaneous crossover appeal. It’s a smart move.
You will support. You will stan. Goodbye.
