Rita Ora has announced that her debut album will be called Ora and will be released on 27 August.

The record features a famous line-up of producers including Drake, Chase & Status and will.i.am.

Twenty-one-year-old Rita has already had two UK number one singles, R.I.P. and the DJ Fresh track she featured on, Hot Right Now.

She's also supported Coldplay and Drake on tour and appeared at events like Radio 1's Hackney Weekend.

The singer, who was born in the former Yugoslavia but grew up in west London, said making the album was lots of fun.

"I can't believe how lucky I've been to work with these amazing people," she said.

"We have all clicked and had such a good time."

The album release will be preceded by a new single called How We Do (Party), due out on 12 August.

She's also due to appear at London's Notting Hill Carnival on the same day her album comes out.
