That Rita rise just won’t let up…

For, in a further testament to Roc Nation‘s faith in their newest star Rita Ora, it has been confirmed that the US release of her ‘ORA’ album will be backed by a slot on MTV Unplugged.

Details on the 22 year old’s coveted coup after the jump…

According to All Access, the Londoner will perform on the renown show, which famously hosted the likes of Lauryn Hill and Nirvana, in September.

The news comes on the heels of confirmation that British chart-topper, ‘R.I.P’, will serve as the 2nd single from the American incarnation of the album – which arrives in the Fall.

Back home, prospects are looking equally luminous. For, as at writing, Ora is on course to score her third consecutive #1 on the Official UK Singles Chart next week with ‘How We Do (Party & Bullsh*t)’. The track presently sits atop of the iTunes Top 200 and is widely predicted to stay there over the next seven days. A feat, which if achieved, will serve as a huge boost to the UK version of the album which hits stores on August 27th.

Watch Ora belt out ‘R.I.P’ for Billboard:

    She has a great voice but I just find her songs boring. Will definitely watch the Unplugged show but I’m still on the fence as to whether I will buy her album.

    She can be a top UK star, like Girls Aloud , steps, S club 7 etc. She will never be a global superstar – only the UK seem to like Rita, i MEAN how we do flopped in America, yet is number 1 in the uk? She appeals to the UK

      They really are going in to overdrive to make her happen in the UK. I mean, Rob kardashian is back in londonto help get her press – And she put some picture of her beyonce and called her family – I mean……If your talent is so strong, why do u need all these gimmicks? I mean Rob Kardashian ?

      I think Rita could have a stable career in the UK, maybe she will not be as big as Cheryl Cole or Jessie J, but, like Duffy, she can at least have something out there. I do not know how long it will last as Duffy, Dido , Lilly Allen,Katie Melua and Joss Stone all fell off with the british public

      I just hope Roc Nation do not keep trying to force her on the much wiser American public – we are not easily fooled.

    Rita is not doing badly for herself there is noting wrong in her using every means available to get to the top.No body should come here and pretend that your fav didn’t do worse to get to the top,I mean a certain woman had s** with jay to get to the top and now she turns around to praise the point is that nobody is perfect so naysayers let Rita be!

    Benron (Frank SideHoeShit is whack) says:

    Instead of talking about Rihanna’s beautiful, nonhusky voice that posseses RANGE unlike Rita’s, here fans should probably go request “How we do (Promote & UnderPerform)” on Radio stations.

    FlopWife is still pissed her fave is a CONFESSED WOMAN BEATING, CHAIR THROWING BOTTLE DODGING PSYCHOPATH who will steal the very phone she uses to write such LIES about Rihanna to try and save Chris’ reputation.

      You are so uneducated and naive. Rihanna praised Beyonce, at tthe time Beyonce is releasing pictures of Rita Ora ( the week of her single release ) to play the laws of power back. Beyonce has never ever like Rihanna, nor has she been close to any other singer, in the way she has Rita Ora; It is all fake! She is only being ‘BFF’ with Rita because she thinks Rita can get rid of her black rival who is even more famous than her – and YOUNGER AND SEXIER!

      But Rih is more smarter than she looks! Slim s***, you do not know the laws of power! Beyonce is trying to shade her, Rih shows her ‘ love ‘ that is how you blow your haters away!.

      Don’t hate jealous people, they are jealous of you because they think you are better than them.

      Beyonce is clearly intimidated by the superstardom of Rihanna.
