Rita Ora co-wrote this song with Andrew Watt when she was based in LA in early 2017. Ora recalled: "I was in a routine, working every day, and found myself day dreaming about breaking out of the city and going on a road trip with my friends and never looking back."
Former California Breed guitarist Andrew Watt is the hitmaker behind DJ Snake featuring Justin Bieber's "Let Me Love You", Kygo featuring Selina Gomez's "It Ain't Me" and Camila Cabello's "Havana."
Rita Ora wrote the song in Los Angeles, while she was missing her hometown of London. "I felt really still and stuck," she told the BBC Radio 1 show. "I just felt really slow and I wanted to listen to a song I could drive into the distance with. I wrote this song because I wanted to hit the road."
The video was shot on the streets of New York. "I was literally grabbing people from the street and kissing them," Rita revealed. "They were looking at me like I was crazy. They were all really good and wanted to be involved."
"I Just Wanna Love U (Give It 2 Me) " borrows four bars from Notorious B.I.G's "The World Is Filled." Jay-Z and Biggie Smalls attended Westinghouse Career and Technical Education High School in Brooklyn, New York at the same time.
