The 24-year-old British singer shared her love for the 26-year-old American recording artist in an interview with The Sun. Ora and Brown are currently collaborating on an as-of-yet untitled song.
"Chris Brown is strong, powerful and someone that is important to me personally and professionally," she declared. "The discrimination all what people think? If you have a great song then no one cares."
Brown is well known for his assault of ex-girlfriend Rihanna, multiple arrests and troubled relationship with recent girlfriend Karrueche Tran, but Ora insisted there is more to the star than the public eye sees.
"I love him on different levels," she shared. "I see how he treats his people and he's a good person with a good heart and a lovely family ... It's really nice that we finally got together because, regardless of what's happened, the song is just amazing."
Ora released her first studio album, Ora, in August 2012, and has a second record in the works. The singer debuted a music video for new single "Poison" earlier this month, and recently told Hunger TV the song is "basically about all [her] exes combined."
