So Ora deleted the tweet and, when asked by her fans what was going on, she blamed the whole thing on hackers. “By the way my Twitter got hacked somebody is threatening to release new music I’ve worked really hard on,” she wrote. “Nothing comes out until I’m ready.”
Seems legit. Rita Ora pop songs are the new WikiLeaks.
However, Us Magazine claims that Ora actually re-tweeted a fan’s plea on Friday that read: “where her 3.9m followers at when you need them smh.” That re-tweet has been un-RT’d, as well.
So we probably won’t be getting a new Rita Ora song tomorrow, which keeps “Black Widow,” her “Dark Horse”-jacking collaboration with Iggy Azalea, fresh in our minds just a little bit longer. But if this post gets 100,000 shares, we’ll cover one of her songs and release it ourselves on YouTube.

And Ora’s explanation… which has been re-tweeted nearly 1,400 times.
By the way my Twitter got hacked somebody is threatening to release new music I've worked really hard on. Nothing comes out until I'm ready.
