Keep your friends close and your competition closer.
At least that’s the mind-set Rihanna must have employed last night in London when she ran into “chart rival” Rita Ora. The pair crossed paths en route to Jay-Z and Kanye West‘s ‘Watch The Throne Tour’ at the O2 Arena, and as per the shot above ol’ RiRi couldn’t keep her hands off the ‘How We Do’ singer. They’d then go on to follow each other on Twitter.
Again, keep your friends close and your competition closer…
Since Ora burst onto the charts earlier this year, the Londoner has been touted (on mass) as Rih’s ”replacement”. With good reason, too.
Aged just 22, she’s packing everything her Roc Nation sister is, plus actual vocal talent. What’s more, despite their Nation affiliation, the ladies are in reality signed to rival labels. Hence regardless of any media stirring or their own personal takes on it, they’re entirely each other’s competition – especially with Rita clearly being positioned in Fenty’s “lane” and ironically working it better than her.
Needless to say, it’ll be interesting to see how this plays out.
