Rita Ora and Chris Brown are hot a heavy in the music video for "Body on Me," the lead single from Ora's forthcoming U.S. album. In the Colin Tilley-directed clip, the Albanian beauty and the R&B bad boy fantasize over each other after meeting in the elevator of their building. Ora's imagination is on a 100 as she pictures them making love in her apartment before taking the party to the roof to show off their dance moves.
"Body on Me" is an ear candy for the airwaves as Ora and Brown sing a resounding chant in the chorus for the sake of getting closer. "Aaye aye aye oh aye oh / I just wanna feel your body on me / If you want it then you got it, hold me," they sing on the track produced by The Monsters & The Strangerz.
"This song is definitely kind of like the most intimate that I’ve ever done, so I tried to balance the video out in a classy way," Ora told NY's Hot 97.
Chris also spoke out about the collaboration recently, telling CapitalFM: "I?ve known Rita for about almost 5 years now so we?ve never quite had the opportunity to do a record. We always talked about it in passing, and we saw each other, you know we'?re friends and we've got all the same friends.
"I was in the studio and she was in the studio and she was like 'Hey I got this idea, let me know if you like it' and I was like that?s dope, let?s do it. The track is musical, sexual, intense and intimate, its' something to give you chills but also shake the crowd up a little bit."
Rita's album, which will see the light of day stateside, is reportedly due in October. She will embark on a U.S. tour, starting Aug. 25 in San Francisco. The nine-date trek will make stops in L.A., Las Vegas, Atlanta, Boston, New York, and D.C., wrapping Sept. 17 in Chicago.
