Rita Ora's New Album Is Blowing Up

Posted at November 27th, 2018 | by Shank | in Dance Music, Entertainment, Featured, Music, News, Videos

Born in Pristina, Kosovo but raised in London, pop 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.

The seven years between her debut album and this powerful follow-up were, by all accounts, tough, with record label legal entanglements, high-profile relationship drama, and unseemly rumours.

“My fans deserve to know exactly how I feel, exactly what I went through, and exactly why they had to wait so bloody long for a Rita Ora album”

Armed with renewed self-confidence and a good-vibes-only outlook, she started fresh. Phoenix, of course, is a nod to rebirth. The album is adventurous, triumphant, and unflinchingly honest.
