At the age of 21 singer Rita Ora has done more in her life than most, including getting major support from major recording artists including Jay-Z, Steven Tyler, and Drake. What’s truly amazing about Ora though is her voice, it sounds young at points, yet it is incredibly strong. Both of these are things most of her contemporaries would be able to fathom, yet she keeps a steady head, and keeps on putting out great music.
Ora was born in Kosovo, but was raised in West London after her parents immigrated the same year she was born. Growing up, Ora was very interested in the arts including theater and music. She actually had a couple of roles in small movies during her teens. Eventually she got onto a TV talent show, but dropped out. Ora then started singing in clubs around London where she got recognized by A&R scouts from Jay-Z’s record company.
Today she released her debut album, Ora. The album consists of twelve tracks including three tracks that were written, or co-written by Ora. The album also features the single, “R.I.P.” a track written by Drake. It also features collaborations with J. Cole, Tinie Tempah, and will.i.am. Overall it is a solid release, but I can’t wait to hear the music she will make with another couple years under her belt.
Check out Rita Ora. I guarantee you will not be disappointed by her amazing voice and slightly punk influenced attitude. If talent is what you’re looking for in a pop star, forget the rest of the crowd and check her out.
