Rita Ora Covers One Direction’s ‘What Makes You Beautiful’

Rita Ora puts her R&B spin on One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful.”

Brits on Brits on Brits, guys! The very British Rita Ora covered the very British One Direction‘s ”What Makes You Beautiful,” which pretty much makes this cover song an anglophile’s wet dream. The “Roc The Life” chanteuse stopped by BBC Radio 1 “Live Lounge” to put her acoustic R&B spin on 1D’s original sugary-sweet pop song. We’d be remiss if we didn’t remind you that not only are One Direction up for TWO 2012 MTV VMA nominations, they’re also performing live to a crowd that will probably look a lot like THIS. Back to Rita: her harmonies are supertight, and yet again, we’re fully convinced that Rita can SAAAANG. Plus, how could we not be into something THIS BRITISH? Be on the lookout for Rita’s forthcoming ORA, when it drops internationally on Aug. 27.
