Rita Ora Performs Acoustic Version of “Bang Bang” on The Ellen DeGeneres Show
- British singer-songwriter Rita Ora released the acoustic version of her latest EP “Bang” on March 12, 2021.
She performed “Bang Bang” from the EP on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon earlier this month.
Following The Tonight Show, she appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to perform full acoustic version of “Bang Bang”.
The original version of the EP “Bang” was released back in February, featuring David Guetta, Gunna and Khea.
Then, she re-recorded the EP as acoustic version. Rita Ora shared on social media, “I went back into the studio and re sang them all and re constructed the dance ep so you also get a acoustic emotional approach to everything! I really enjoyed singing these dance songs this way and playing around with production and strings and stuff! I did every single song this way!”
“Bang Bang” was written by Rita Ora, Imanbek Zeikenov, Gia Koka and Harold Faltermeyer. The track sampled “Axel F” by Harold Faltermeyer.
She told Apple Music about the song, “I was in such two minds about using the sample ['Axel F' by Harold Faltermeyer from Beverly Hills Cop]. I had a wariness around using something so iconic, that was such a moment in people's youths. But I couldn't resist—I thought it was genius, and so much fun. It reminds me of being a kid. Because I was alone in the recording process, I just had to trust my instinct. There's the melody and a chord progression there which makes it much more than just that sample. You're going to hear it, know it, and feel good.”
