Rita Ora was "honoured" by the long list of super producers - including The-Dream, Diplo, Stargate and will.i.am - who worked with her on debut album, 'Ora'

Rita Ora was "honoured" to work with so many big name producers on her debut album, 'Ora'.

The 'How We Do (Party)' singer worked with over 20 people to create her album, including huge names such as The-Dream, Diplo, Chase and Status, Stargate, will.i.am and Greg Kurstin, which was great as it meant she could incorporate all the different genres she grew up hearing.

She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "When you're young you have so many different choices, it's an honour to have all those different people to help you express all those different influences.

"Especially being from London you have hip-hop influences, soul influences, pop, dance, everything - and you need a writer and producer to get those across."

While she worked with a host of different people on her debut - which has produced three number one singles - Rita, 21, is eventually hoping to establish a relationship with one writing partner and producer to work with on a whole album.

She added: "I would love to have, over time, to find one writer and one producer that we could do a whole album together. But as a beginner in the music industry, when you get the chance to write with all these people, you don't want to say, 'No, I'm not gonna take your song.'

"As long as I connect to the songs, that's the most important thing for me, because I want people to believe what I'm singing and in order to do that, I have to believe what I'm singing in the first place."

'ORA' is released today (27.08.12).
