Rita Ora definitely knows how to make the French say “ooh la la.”
Ora took to the stage on French television program Le Before du Grand Journal over the weekend and proved that her pipes can compete with those of Queen Bey, performing a cover of Beyoncé’s smash hit “Drunk in Love.”
Though no one will ever replace the woman otherwise known as Sasha Fierce, Ora’s smooth voice gives the track a sexy feel, and boy, can the girl sing. If you listen closely, you can even catch a peek of the 23-year-old star’s British accent, which is adorable as well.
While the “I Will Never Let You Down” songstress’ voice was definitely at the forefront of the performance, her appearance was not to hard on the eyes, either. Rocking an oh-so-Parisian red lip and a flowing yet edgy beetle-printed frock, Ora looked gorgeous.
“Drunk in Love” seems to be 2014’s song to cover so far this year, and celebrities just can’t get enough of it. Several industry heavyweights, including Lily Allen and Ed Sheeran, have publicly covered the ditty. Sheeran’s rendition of the song in New York on Z100 was especially interesting since it gave a male perspective to the song. We also got a bit of a giggle back in January when Vin Diesel posted a video of himself on Facebook busting a move to the track. Don’t quit your day job, Mr. Diesel!
Who could Ora be drunk in love with? She has been dating DJ Calvin Harris for about a year. The two called it quits back in January, but the couple are reportedly back on now.
