Following their apparent date night last week, Rita Ora and Justin Bieber are reportedly working on new music together.
According to Hollywood Life, just days after photographers snapped the twosome out and about in Los Angeles, Rita has already scooped herself a collaboration with the 22-year-old following the news she was finally let out of her recording contract with Roc Nation.
Sources allege that Bieber is mixing his “business with pleasure,” insinuating that Justin is definitely hooking up with Rita, which will be his first relationship since his split from Hailey Baldwin a couple of weeks ago.

Reports claimed that Justin and Hailey realized that they were both better off as friends. They’ve known each other for a long time, and to jeopardize their friendship with what could’ve been a nasty split just wouldn’t be worth it in the end.
Ora, who famously dated Rob Kardashian — and was infamously blamed for his weight gain — is taking things steady with Justin, but the fact that the duo has already been working on music together makes it seem as if this supposed relationship is off to a good start.
A source gushed, “Justin is mixing business with pleasure hanging with Rita. They have been working on a secret collaboration for a while and sparks have been flying.”
What’s more interesting about Justin Bieber’s reported hookup with Rita Ora is that the “Body on Me” singer isn’t hoping to get anything out of the romance. She’s just enjoying his company, and if it turns out that they were meant to be, then that’s how it’ll be.
“Justin is always down for a good time with Rita too. They enjoy spending time together. Making good music is just a bonus,” the insider added.

According to reports, Justin and Rita have known each other for quite some time, but their public outing last week seemed to have made it clear to fans that there’s definitely something going on between the two.
As for their collaboration, Rita Ora has already confirmed that she’s been in the studio working on her forthcoming album following endless delays.
Her sophomore record was supposed to have seen a release date back in 2014, but following her nasty split from Calvin Harris, who produced the majority of the songs, the 25-year-old had to return to the studio and work on new music material.
Ora then became frustrated with her former label, Roc Nation, blaming them for her struggle to make a name for herself in America. She would go on to file a lawsuit against the record company, owned by Jay-Z, who finally granted her wishes to be removed from their roster and let out of her contract earlier this week.

Rumor has it that Rita Ora has just signed a new deal with Warner, the same label that holds the likes of Ed Sheeran and her ex-boyfriend Bruno Mars.
With this in mind, perhaps the collaboration she’s working on with Justin Bieber is exactly what she needs in order to land herself a hit record in America, which will hopefully help her chances in staying relevant enough to enjoy the same kind of success Justin has had with his latest album, Purpose.
Justin Bieber’s fans are already asking themselves what Selena Gomez must make of her ex-boyfriend’s alleged new romance with Rita Ora, seeing that it was just days ago when the “I’ll Show You” singer began following the former Disney Channel star on Instagram again.
