We’re Praising Rita Ora’s ‘Praising You’ Feat. Fatboy Slim

The title of this article tells you that our bestie, Rita Ora, has just dropped a new banger of a single, ‘Praising You,’ with Fatboy Slim, but we didn’t mention that she is also releasing her third album, You & I, on July 14th! Surprise! Freaking out? Yeah, so are we!

Before we get into the super incredible surprise that you definitely weren’t expecting, let’s chat about the blazing hot single that is ‘Praising You’ (Feat. Fatboy Slim)!

The song is absolutely gorgeous! Rita’s unreal vocals take center stage as she effortlessly delivers the lyrical genius found in ‘Praising You,’ and Fatboy Slim’s production elevates it to a whole new level. Her smooth and soulful voice adds a layer of emotion to the track, and it brings us to our knees. Lyrically, Rita describes her undying love, appreciation, and admiration for her significant other—someone who has had a profound impact on her life—saying that all she can do is praise them! Her emotive delivery draws listeners in and immediately connects them to the song’s emotional core.

I have to praise you (Ooh-ooh-ooh, hey) / I have to praise you like I should

Wanna hear something cool? ‘Praising You’ is actually a fresh take on Fatboy Slim’s 1998 hit ‘Praise You!’ As a duo, the two have managed to revamp and modernize the track, using it as their baseline of inspiration for the new song! The two of them merged their sounds into a perfect masterpiece, showcasing their incredible, effortless talent!

To not only get Norman’s stamp of approval but to actually collaborate with him and pay homage to such a massive song from my childhood was truly a surreal experience. I think this record means something different for everyone, but from my perspective, it’s about praising your loved ones and really celebrating those relationships. I’m incredibly honoured that we get to breathe new life into the song and re-introduce it to a whole new generation.

It feels good to have something to write about. It just started off as a little diary and it’s turned into this love story for my fans and also for anyone that wants to feel a bit of that.
