Earlier today, A$AP Rocky clarified his lyrics about Rita Ora on his song "Better Things" during an interview with Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1. On the song, which appears on Rocky's new album, At.Long.Last.A$AP, Rocky raps about Rita having a big mouth and hints that the two had some sort of relationship that wasn't known to the public until now.

Without going into too much detail, Rocky said that he mentioned Rita on the song because when he was in a relationship with another girl, Rita got him into a fair amount of trouble because of the things they did together. "I just want to clarify, this isn't me saying, people don't go listen to Rita Ora, or she's an ugly person or nothing, I'm not saying she's a terrible person, I'm just saying that when I was in a relationship and I did things with her that I wasn't supposed to do, she had a big mouth," Rocky said. Rocky also pointed out that the song is actually pretty old, but he decided to include it on the album because it was such a good song and he didn't want to cut any of it out, despite the diss towards Rita.
