23 3.01 Lay Down Your Weapons (K Koke feat. Rita Ora)

Hot right now: Frenchie, Cody Burnett, Riser, Jordan Lee (6)
R.I.P. to the bullshit: Dobbo, Cqmerqn, Rhoda Camel, danG (0)

To the surprise of nobody, Lay Down Your Weapons is the first track to drop. A top 20 hit in 2013, when Rita had just brought her hugely successful ORA era to a close, she provided the chorus to K Koke's sole UK hit to date. It didn't stick around for long, spending only two weeks top 40, and hasn't made any sort of lasting impression. It's not shocking, considering K Koke's a pretty terrible rapper and Rita's chorus is the only decent part - I'd have preferred a Pt. 2 version!

'Lay Down Your Weapons' was a bit uneventful at the time and definitely feels dated now. Not a surprising last placer at all!

Not surprised, a very forgettable track that coasted off Rita's massive success. Think 'Girls', 'New York Raining' or 'R.I.P.' (2018 version) will be the next ones out.

Lay Down Your Weapons definitely the low point of her career, glad we're mostly on the same page with that x

22 4.35 New York Raining (Charles Hamilton feat. Rita Ora)

Hot right now: George.keh (9)
R.I.P. to the bullshit: Dobbo, Cqmerqn, Rhoda Camel (0)

Rita's collaboration with American rapper Charles Hamilton is the next song out! New York Raining reached #29 in the UK charts in June 2015, which remained Rita's lowest peaking single until 2019. The track appears on the deluxe edition of the season one soundtrack for Fox's TV series Empire.

I like New York Raining! I don't love it though and that's definitely the right point for it to drop out.

Same as Joseph, really. It's better than people would probably remember it being, but it's definitely not an essential and is in the right place for it's fall out of the rate.

Not surprised at that bottom two.

For me Girls and How We Do are her weakest two efforts but these aren’t far behind so I’m not too gutted to see them drop out at this point.

Feeling like we could be in for a Anywhere, I Will Never Let You Down, Let You Love Me top 3 perhaps.

Phoenix era to do better than ORA.

And Body On Me to be her highest collaboration.

21 5.10 Shine Ya Light

Hot right now: Calum (8.5)
R.I.P. to the bullshit: Bré, Cqmerqn, Tawdry Hepburn, Rhoda Camel (0)

'Shine Ya Light' was Rita's first ever post-album single and is remembered for being the song she made her X-Factor performance debut with. It's not the mostly fondly remembered track among fans though, as can be seen by that 5.10 average. Luckily, the followup single was a bit stronger.

'Shine Ya Light' is honestly my least favourite song of this decade.

No surprises just yet but there is likely to be one or 2 further in the countdown.

20 5.19 Girls (feat. Cardi B, Bebe Rexha & Charli XCX)

Hot right now: NickF1, Doug, JosephStyles (10)
R.I.P. to the bullshit: Bré, SamJudd, Liam, Cqmerqn, Jack, Mack (0)

At #20 and as I predicted, ridiculously low here, is 'Girls'. I remember when I, and most others, first heard it during BBC Radio 1's big weekend back in 2017, there was a massive buzz surrounding it. Everyone begged for it to be a single as it seemed to be "an anthem for the gays/bisexuals", it got a release almost a year later and suddenly everyone hated it? Lmao. Like, they HATE it. I understand the criticisms that the chorus feels weaker than when she performed it (it's why I couldn't rate it too high despite liking it a lot) but I feel it's really harshly scored :'( - Let's blame Cardi B.

Forever underrated </3
