Rita Ora has deleted all posts from her Instagram feed.
The songstress, 30, is currently in quarantine in Australia after flying Down Under to film The Voice and since locking down in her hotel, Rita took to the photosharing site to erase every single image from the page.
Soon after the erasure, eagle-eyed fans took to Twitter to speculate over the reasoning, with many claiming the move was a teaser for new music.
Sure enough, a few hours later and Rita had uploaded one new post for her 16m followers, announcing a new music project with GRAMMY-nominated DJ and record producer Imanbek.

After repeatedly coming under fire for flouting coronavirus rules in recent months, insiders told MailOnline that she was hoping for ‘a fresh start’, just days after it was revealed she had lost 200k followers due to her rule breaking.
Rita has just landed in Australia ahead of filming for her judging role on The Voice and is currently in quarantine in the five star Meriton Suites Pitt Street hotel, where the penthouse suite costs $500 (£279) per night.
Much to the shock of her fans, her Instagram account was wiped clean early on Thursday leading to speculation over the reasons and claims she was set to release music.
Twitter users penned: ‘just seen this and new music must be coming! I thought I was gonna have a heart attack.9 posts on your insta!!!? New tunes must be coming x.’

Hours later and Rita announced a new collaborative project with producer Imanbek – a joint EP named Bang to be released on February 12.
The EP was written and produced over Zoom and features artists from all over the world, including David Guetta.
‘When we started this project, we were really looking to develop creative connections with other artists,’ explained Rita.
‘Collaborating with Imanbek was a really unique experience, we had meetings through Zoom to discuss the music and we had to use translators as well as, so we really had to adapt to a new way of recording.’

Rita was pictured jetting into Sydney International Airport on Monday after being permitted to leave the UK during lockdown for work commitments, and will become a coach on the Australian version of the hit singing competition.
The work trip comes after Rita was branded ‘selfish’ by British police for holding a rule-flouting 30th birthday bash at west London restaurant Casa Cruz in November.
The party came amid another rule break, as she has previously flown by private jet to Cairo on November 21 to perform at the five-star W Hotel.

She returned the next day and under Government quarantine rules should have self-isolated for 14 days. Instead, she threw a birthday party on November 28.
The infamous birthday party at Casa Cruz saw Rita branded ‘selfish’, the manager of the restaurant sacked and the venue facing losing its licence.
As well as her 30th birthday bash and Cairo trip, Rita sparked fury in April last year when it was revealed she’d travelled to The Cotswolds just days before London’s first lockdown.
The star arrived at the farmhouse on March 21 before Prime Minister Boris Johnson put the UK on lockdown to tackle the coronavirus crisis, reports The Sun.
Rita’s following has been on a steady decline, and as of Friday, January 29 she has around 16 million fans keeping track of her online updates.
