"How We Do (Party)" is a song recorded by British recording artist Rita Ora, as the lead single from her debut studio album Ora (2012). The song borrows lyrics from The Notorious B.I.G.'s 1993 single "Party and Bullshit". Upon its release, "How We Do (Party)" peaked inside the top-ten in Australia and New Zealand. It was released as the album's second single in Ireland on 10 August 2012 and in the United Kingdom on 12 August 2012 and reached number-one in both regions.

Critical receptionEdit

The song received mixed to positive reviews from music critics. Djbooth.net wrote "The Runners juxtaposing a pop-rock guitar with bass-booming reverb-drenched percussion as the singer/songwriter encourages listeners to let go of their cares and paint the town red. An eminently catchy ode to revelry and young love". MTV Buzzworthy described the song as "a power-pop punch of guitar strumming goodness". dolator gave the song a mixed review, writing that it is "much less Rihanna-esque [than 'R.I.P.'], so there's hope. (…) [but] she sounds a mix of Jessie J and Karmin here".

Music videoEdit

The music video was filmed in Coney Island, New York and directed by Marc Klasfeld. A teaser was released on 11 April 2012, with the actual video being released on 17 April 2012. Rita said the concept of the video is, "It's basically a big party with no judgement, so there's a whole bunch of people in there, from a guy who's got knickers on and who's colored in paint on his chest to an old man kind of shaking his hips around. ... It's definitely [about embracing] anyone who wants to come to a party."

Lyrics (Explicit)Edit

And party and bullshit
And party and bullshit
And party and bullshit...
And party, and party

I stumbled up to the window
Opened the curtains to blinding lights
Make-up all over the pillow
What went on? What went on?
What went on last night?
You used to fuck while you're screaming (yeah)
Holding your bottle of Tanqueray (yeah)
It isn't even the weekend
Baby, that's how I know you're the one for me

I wanna party and bullshit
And party and bullshit
And party and bullshit
And party and bullshit
And party, and party

'Cause when the sun sets baby
On the avenue
I get that drunk sex feeling
Yeah, when I'm with you
So put your arms around me, baby
We're tearing up the town
'Cause that's just how we do

We got that sweet, hot loving
Dancing in the dark
Out in the streets we're running
Shut down every bar
So put your arms around me, baby
We're tearing up the town
'Cause that's just how we do
How we do, that's just how we do
How we do, that's just how we do

Hangover, I think I'm broken
You said the fix is a shot of Jack
I said, "Man, what are you smoking?"
But alright, pour a glass, and we'll throw 'em back

I wanna party and bullshit
And party and bullshit
And party and bullshit
And party, and party

'Cause when the sun sets baby
On the avenue
I get that drunk sex feeling
Yeah when I'm with you
So put your arms around me baby
We're tearing up the town
'Cause that's just how we do

We got that sweet, hot loving
Dancing in the dark
Out in the streets we're running
Shut down every bar
So put your arms around me, baby
We're tearing up the town
'Cause that's just how we do

How we do, that's just how we do
How we do, that's just how we do
How we do, that's just how we do
How we do, that's just how we do
How we do, that's just how we do

I wanna party and bullshit
And party and bullshit
And party and bullshit
And party and bullshit...
And party, and party

I wanna party and bullshit
And party and bullshit
And party and bullshit
And party and bullshit...
And party, and party

'Cause when the sun sets baby
On the avenue
I get that drunk sex feeling
Yeah when I'm with you
So put your arms around me baby
We're tearing up the town
'Cause that's just how we do

We got that sweet hot loving
Dancing in the dark
Out in the streets we're running
Shut down every bar
So put your arms around me baby
We're tearing up the town
'Cause that's just how we do

And party and bullshit
And party and bullshit
And party and bullshit
And party and party
How we do, that's just how we do
How we do, that's just how we do
How we do, that's just how we do
How we do, that's just how we do
