Embarrassing u-turn for Rita Ora as the singer deletes tweet to promote new song

It may have seemed like a good idea at the time. But Rita Ora is probably wishing she hadn't bothered promoting her new single on Twitter.

The singer said she would release her new single on Monday - but only if she got 100,000 retweets.

That should be pretty easy for a woman with close to 4 million followers.

But no. The singer from West London only managed around 2,000 retweets. So she deleted it.
