Singer Rita Ora said she was grateful to have had the support of Ed Sheeran during her time out of the music industry because of the legal battles over her record contract. The 26-year-old singer hasn’t released an album for five years because of a lengthy dispute with her old record label, Roc Nation, and she has praised Sheeran for supporting, co- writing and lending backing vocals to her comeback single, “Your Song”, reported Contactmusic.
“Ed is one of my really good friends, I’ve known him for about five years now and that song actually happened towards the end (of recording),” Ora said. “I think people were excited when they heard I was working on stuff again and I just needed to find a team of people who I could be myself with and open up to, people I could tell my stories… I am really grateful for the support. It’s such a different time for me now.”
