LONDON (AP) - Jay-Z's protege Rita Ora says she's not dating Drake, they're just good friends.
She did, however, fall in love with a track he wrote, "R.I.P." It's Ora's debut single in the U.K., where it's No. 1 on iTunes.
The Kosovo-born singer had a party in London on Tuesday to celebrate.
Ora says she loved the track the moment she heard it, but she's only pals with Drake.
Ora says: "We're really good friends actually ... He has my back so it's really nice to know I have a guy that's a good friend like that."
The 21-year-old is signed to Jay-Z's Roc Nation and is now on the radar of the paparazzi, who hung around outside the party.
Ora says, "I'm like, oh my God, they care!"
