Ora: I'd love Jay-Z, Beyonce track

Rita Ora would like to work with Mr and Mrs Carter - aka Beyonce and Jay-Z

Rita Ora has revealed she would like to work with husband-and-wife duo, Beyonce and Jay-Z.

The 22-year-old singer, who is signed to Jay-Z's Roc Nation label, said she is waiting for the right opportunity to work with Mr and Mrs Carter.

"I would love to collaborate with Beyonce and Jay-Z," she said, adding: "I want to work with a lot of amazing producers that will bring out my voice and let me express some of the few influences that I grew up with like Sade. Her music is so simple and touching and powerful at the same time.

"I want people to hear my music and automatically know that it's me just by my voice and spirit."

Rita - who worked with Drake, Will.i.am, Tinie Tempah, J Cole and DJ Fresh for her debut album Ora - recently recorded Torn Apart with rapper Snoop Dogg for his new album, Reincarnated.

"I love Snoop! Snoop is a legend and it was such an honour. I'm so happy with the song - it's such a fun song for the summer and I can't wait to hear it at Notting Hill Carnival 2013," she said.

Rita is taking part in MasterCard's series of Priceless Gigs, allowing fans to see their favourite artists in intimate venues in London for free.

She added: "We shot the video in Thailand, which was so beautiful. It was the most relaxed video set I've ever been on! It was like doing a video with a friend as Snoop sets such an amazing mood with the whole team who were working on the video. I respect him a lot for that he made everyone want to do their best."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

It's time to take charge of your finances. You can't relax unless you have some money in the bank. Therefore, you should land a good job that brings a steady income. Don't be afraid to ask for more money than you are initially offered. A show of courage will pave the way for a good working relationship with your boss. You're tired of giving away your precious talent for a pittance. Stand in your own defence. If you don't, nobody else will.More
