The 'R.I.P.' singer says the 'Countdown' star gave her great feedback after covering a Destiny's Child song recently.

Rita Ora has revealed that Beyonce "really liked" her cover of 'Say My Name' during a recent concert performance and admits she was thrilled to get the approval of the 'Love On Top' star.

The 'R.I.P.' singer performed the popular Destiny's Child song at a showcase gig in New York City last month, which was attended by Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z - who signed Rita to his Roc Nation label back in 2009.

"She came behind stage and I sang 'Say My Name', and I didn't know she was there, so afterwards she came and praised me for doing [the song]," the star revealed exclusively to Capitalfm.com this week. "She really, really liked it and she was really happy with it."

Rita added: "I was really, really happy that I got her approval!"

On Monday evening (7th May) the 21 year-old singer-songwriter was pictured in a figure-hugging rubber dress while launching her new single in central London.

Rita Ora is currently at number one on the Vodafone Big Top 40 with her Tinie Tempah collaboration and debut UK single 'R.I.P.'.
