OraArtist Biography

Born in Pristina, Kosovo but raised in London, R&B singer Rita Ora made her first official appearance in 2007 when she guested on Craig David’s single “Awkward.” A year later she joined Tinchy Stryder on his single “Where’s Your Love,” but her big break came in 2009 when an open-mike performance attended by one of Jay-Z’s A&R men landed her a deal with the rapper’s label, Roc Nation. In 2012, she provided the vocals for DJ Fresh’s drum’n’bass hit “Hot Right Now,” which topped the charts in the U.K. She returned to the number one spot that same year with her debut solo single, “R.I.P.” Ora also released her debut album, simply titled Ora, which went straight to the number one spot on the U.K. album charts.
