Rita Ora's brand new single Poison made us wonder who she's singing about. Who's that special guy that she's got it bad for? Whoever it is, one thing's for sure, we love the song.

The track first aired on Capital FM in the UK yesterday and the British singer dished on her new song on air. "It was really important for me to come back with the right song," said Rita. "It's been awhile and I wanted to come back with a bang."

She also described the song as "about my bad luck with love." Is she hinting at Calvin Harris? Maybe she's upset about his new relationship? Not at all because she sounds like she's completely in awe of the Scottish DJ's new girlfriend, Taylor Swift. "I think she's one of the most incredible songwriters of our generation," Rita said in an interview with Vice. "I'm not even just saying it. I absolutely adore her music and love what she stands for."
