Good news for Rita Ora fans. The singer has reportedly filmed a secret music video with the “Material Girl” herself, Madonna.
The “Vogue” songstress and the 24-year-old Ora were said to have developed a friendship after meeting at different showbiz events. An insider even commented there was a “real connection” there that went beyond the normal business-related relationships.
Ora was one of the few people who came to 56-year-old music superstar’s defense after the incident with Drake and the two became closer after that.
During a performance at Coachella, Madonna pulled Drake into a passionate French kiss that was typical of the “Like a Virgin” star. But Drake appeared to be disgusted by the kiss, and was seen making a face and wiping his mouth afterwards.

The singer received a not so small amount of ridicule after the incident.
But Ora came to Madonna’s defense, posting a steamy 90’s photo of the pop legend on Instagram that showed off her athletic body in pasties and a sheer leotard.
“Thank you for fighting all these ageist battles, and paving a way, that just maybe one day, all of us ‘Younger’ Artists won't have too in the future,” Ora’s message said.
And it seemed that Madonna was appreciative of the gesture as well.
A music video with an icon like Madonna might just be the extra push the “I Will Never Let You Down” hit maker needs to make it big in the US.
“It’s an incredible coup for Rita to do a vid with Madonna and shows how big she is becoming in the States,” a source close to the singer said.
And Ora was so excited that she even “changed her schedule to be able to do the filming in an instant.”
This isn’t the first time that the two have worked together. The British singer has also been tapped to be the face of Material Girl, Madonna and daughter Lourdes’ clothing line.
