Rita Ora wants to "round up the troops" and form a new all-girl super-group to record a track in the style of Christina Aguilera and co's 2001 smash hit 'Lady Marmalade'
Rita Ora wants to form an all-girl super-group with Miley Cyrus.
The 'Body On Me' hitmaker has always been a huge fan of the 2001 cover version of 'Lady Marmalade' recorded by Christina Aguilera, Lil' Kim, Mýa and Pink for the 'Moulin Rouge!' soundtrack.
Now she wants to create a modern-day version of the group featuring her, Miley, her 'Back Widow' collaborator Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX.
Rita told The Sun newspaper: "It's always been my goal to create another 'Lady Marmalade'. I'm trying to round up the troops - I think it would be me, Miley, Charli XCX - she'd be fun - and Iggy."
'Lady Marmalade' was first released by girl group Labelle in 1975 and was a massive hit.
Christina and co's cover also became a monster smash and its burlesque themed video won the MTV Video Music Award for Best Video of the Year and Best Video from a Film and scooped the Grammy Award for Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals in 2002.
