Rita Ora Goes Acoustic to Cover Calvin Harris' 'Slide'

Rita Ora Goes Acoustic to Cover Calvin Harris' 'Slide':

The two dated from 2013-2014.

Rita Ora gave Calvin Harris' hit single "Slide" an acoustic twist on Monday (July 17), covering the hit track for the Elvis Duran and the Morning Show.

With an acoustic guitar accompaniment, the British singer handled both Frank Ocean and Quavo's parts on the Funk Wav Bounces Vol.1 song, really belting out the chorus at the end.

It's a particularly notable song choice for Ora, as she and Harris dated from 2013-2014.

Speaking with Marie Claire in 2015, Ora said that time after their collaboration "I Will Never Let You Down" came out "everything started to go a bit weird. I don't know if it was because business was mixed with personal or what."

Of course none of that means she can't enjoy his music.
