Rita Ora played New York City's Highline Ballroom last night (Dec. 17) after her original show was cancelled due to Hurricane Sandy -- and she delivered the goods with her cover of Kendrick Lamar's 'Swimming Pools (Drank).'

Rita adds her own trademark to the cover by singing the verses as opposed to rapping them. Ora looks to be having a blast, and we can imagine performing a cover here and there breaks up the monotony of performing your own songs night after night. We give this cover two thumbs up, Rita!
