Rita Ora is turning things up for the packaging of her Roc Nation debut (via Rap-Up). The spunky siren took cameras behind the scenes for her sexy street photoshoot in downtown Los Angeles, where she gave them the nitty-gritty on what the shoot was about.

“Everything was inspired basically by being bossy, by being independent, and by taking your own,” Ora said. “We made sure that everything had character. Everything about my pictures, I wanted them to be moments and to be something that you caught.”

Photographers Gomillion & Leupold (Jennifer Lopez, Ciara, Keri Hilson) explained further.

“The inspiration for the shoot is called ’70s boss bitch and it’s a little bit inspired by old photographs of Bianca Jagger,” Leupold said. “It’s like old black and white photos and it’s gonna be kind of laid out like a photo book.”
