The singer will release her first studio album ORA on September 10 and has cited a wide range of influences on the collection, from The Vaccines to No Doubt.
Speaking to Digital Spy at BBC Radio 1's Hackney Weekend, she explained: "ORA is definitely going to be a big surprise for people.
"It's going to be a shock, but in a good way. It brings together a few different aspects of music I've loved and listened to growing up. Literally, I haven't listened to just one style of music since I was little."
She continued: "I love Little Dragon and The Vaccines, but then I love B.I.G. and TLC and Destiny's Child, so you can expect variety. No Doubt was also a big influence on me while making this record, so you're going to hear all the ins and outs of those kind of genres."
Asked if there's a certain track she's excited about, Ora replied: "Yes, it's called 'Unfair'. It's one of the only sensitive tracks I have.
"It's not a ballad, but it's more of an honest mid-tempo. It's not about me going through heartbreak, it's more me giving my all to something and he didn't appreciate it! I hate him right now!"
The star agreed that it was her 'Adele moment' on the record, adding: "I think that's why me and the whole world related to Adele - she's really honest and it's good to be honest."
BBC Radio 1's Hackney Weekend continues today with a headline set from Rihanna and performances from Professor Green, Azealia Banks, David Guetta and Jessie J.
