"R.I.P." is a song recorded by British recording artist Rita Ora from her studio album, Ora, featuring British rapper Tinie Tempah. The song was released as the lead single from the album in the United Kingdom on 6 May 2012. "R.I.P" is an R&B and dubstep influenced song while sampling the Chase & Status remix of the Nneka song "Heartbeat".

"R.I.P." was the UK lead single from Ora's album, as well as her second solo single since being signed to Roc Nation. The song was written by Canadian artist Drake, and originally intended for Rihanna. "'R.I.P.' is a song that I originally wrote for Rihanna. Rihanna actually didn’t take the song. I think it was for Loud and Rita expressed interest in it and anything I can do for Rita, I will do", said Drake. 

The song was also co-written by Farhad Samadzada, Mikkel S. Eriksen, Tor Erik Hermansen, Nneka Egbuna, Renee Wisdom, Saul Milton, William Kennard. Ora spoke on why she wanted the song, saying "I heard the demo when Drake sung it and it touched me (...) I thought it was a great woman empowering song. So I was like 'Drake, I need this song'". She also felt releasing it as her first UK solo single would be a good career move: "As a new artist wanting to make a statement, I definitely felt a confidence-boost would be the way forward. Which is why, as soon as I heard 'R.I.P.', I loved the message behind it."

The song was co-produced by English duo Chase & Status and Stargate.

It was later revealed that the rapper Tinie Tempah would feature on the track titled "R.I.P." In an interview Ora spoke on why she choose to have Tinie Tempah on the album: "Having Tinie on there and working with Tinie is so great because I'm from the UK, I listen to UK music and I really wanted him to be a part of it. His flow just killed it on the beat".

The song samples Chase & Status' remix of Nigerian singer Nneka's 2008 hit "Heartbeat".

The song was released through digital download to Ireland on 4 May 2012 and to the United Kingdom on 6 May 2012, and was also sent to mainstream radio's in the United States on 25, April 2012. Ora described the single as "a synthy, dubstep-flavoured banger."

The video for the single was shot in Hackney, East London and was directed by Emil Nava.
