Rita Ora reveals how her husband, Taika Waititi, inspired her new album, which includes a “wedding song” based on their nuptials playlist.

Rita Ora has revealed that her husband Taika Waititi was the driving force behind her new album, You & I.

The 32-year-old British pop star said The Sydney Morning Herald this weekend that her New Zealand film director husband brought out her creativity and encouraged her to become more involved in the songwriting process.

“I wanted to tell a story about finding love, but it went deeper than that, because to find love, you have to find who you are, what makes you happy,” she said.

“You’re really focusing on your emotions instead of just sweeping them under the rug, which is what I usually do.”

Rita was so focused on the album that she went back to the studio the morning after her wedding.

“I had a session booked with a producer, Cirkut, and I didn’t want to cancel it,” he says.

‘I told him: ‘I’m a little slow because I got married yesterday.’ So we wrote a wedding song. The fact that my brain was a bit fuzzy worked in my favor. There was no trial. I was in the moment.

The resulting ‘wedding song’, the album’s title track You & I, is inspired by music played at the couple’s wedding, including Eternal Flame, I Wanna Dance with Somebody, Wonderful World, Everlasting Love, Sweet Caroline, Stand by Me and The Way. Look tonight.

“It’s basically our wedding playlist,” Rita told the publication.

The pop star included intimate clips of her secret wedding in the music video for the single You & I, which was released last week.

Rita and Taika were married at their Los Angeles home in August 2022, with the bride wearing a Tom Ford gown.

The couple tied the knot in an impromptu ceremony they planned in just two weeks with eight people in attendance, after Rita popped the question during a trip to Palm Springs.

Taika revealed, “She proposed to me and I said ‘yes’ instantly.”

Speaking about the ceremony, the director added: “There were about eight people there, just close friends and family, and parents on Zoom.”

In January, Rita finally confirmed that she and Taika had tied the knot after months of speculation, describing the wedding as “perfect” and a “special day.”

Rita said: ‘Yes (I’m married). I’m officially off the market folks. I chose to keep it more private and keep it more to myself, but with my new video I’m playing with what could have been.”

Rita and Taika began dating in March 2021, before going public with their romance in August and getting engaged in 2022.

Rita and Taika got married at their Los Angeles home in August 2022.
