Rita Ora had never fallen in love until she met Calvin Harris.

The 23-year-old singer has been dating the Scottish DJ for almost a year and says she had been left in the ''wilderness'' looking for the right person until he came along.

She said: ''There are so many things. The fact that he got something out of me that I never thought I had. Yes, like falling in love. I just didn't think I had it. I'd never experienced it before. And I was just like in the wilderness, thinking, 'Will it ever happen?' ''

And the 'I Will Never Let You Down' singer says her contentment in her relationship is reflected in the songs on her new album 'O'.

Speaking to the new edition of Britain's ELLE magazine, she explained: ''I didn't know what the f**k I was doing on my first album, let's be honest. I was a kid having the time of my life. And I made a party album - party and bulls**t.

''This time, I'm still having a great time, but I'm in a great, loving place. Now I want people to see you can have fun and be in love at the same time.''
