Presumably assuming we don't understand that most chart pop hits are now made like Per Una trousersuits, sitched together to a basic design and then offered up to someone in the hope they'll fit, Rita Ora turns up to insist that she was given the chance to do the new Cheryl Cole song first:
She decided the house track — which is written and produced by Calvin Harris — was too dance orientated. She said: “I heard Call My Name quite a while ago because I was offered it.That would be the "doing your own thing" which, er, involves auditioning songs written for whoever fancies doing them.
“I turned it down. I do like the song but I didn’t want to sing it ’cos it’s not really me.
“I don’t want to go down the dance route that a lot of other pop stars are doing.
“I prefer to have my own sound and do my own thing.”
