Rita Ora Talks Rihanna Comparisons

 Rita Ora TGJ1 Rita Ora Talks Rihanna Comparisons

When you’re as talented as Rita Ora, being compared to the likes of Rihanna must get a little tedious at times.

Owning a voice all the #1 singles in the world will never afford the Diamonds‘ singer, Ora recently weighed in the ongoing comparisons between the two during an interview with Australia’s ‘Mike & Emma‘.

Revealing, that she’d rather be compared to 16 time Grammy winner Beyonce than the Chris Brown groupie.

Rita’s wisdom below…

Kudos to Rita for handling the tired comparisons as well as she has.

For, much like the aforementioned Beyonce  back in ’03, Ora is fast becoming one of Pop’s more likable characters- seemingly unfazed by criticism thrown at her by Fenty’s ‘Navy’, whose efforts would have been better spent purchasing tickets for ‘Battleship‘ and tuning in to ‘Styled To Rock‘.

Projects, in paying homage to her live performance style, fail(ed) miserably despite the star power that will ensure ‘Diamonds‘ heads to #1 on the Hot 100, but has failed to secure a US #1 album…seven years into her controversy led career.

All this, the likeliest reason the ‘Navy’ have been all but welcoming to the ‘Love & War’ belle,  hell bent on downplaying her UK success and commercial potential on an international tip.

Then again, as the below will attest to, it’s no wonder Ms. Ora has Rihanna and Co. so hot and bothered:

    Why has Rihanna never been asked to perform the Barbados national anthem? Here are your choices.

    1. The President doesn’t not want to distress the innocent Islanders.

    2. She’s deepthroated all of their microphones already.

    Samantha and Davidina are mad today, is it because diamonds is #1 in 16 countries? Anyway Rita Ora wants to be compared whereas Rihanna doesn’t want to nor needs to be compared, she is in her own lane now and so she doesn’t need to be compared. The only reason people are talking about Rita Ora is because of Rihanna, without that, she would be easily forgotten. Even Samantha knows that Rihanna’s name pays his mortgage.

    *sigh* When will people give it up about the “no #1 album in the US” thing? I could see them bringing it up if Rihanna was just a local act, but she scores #1 albums WORLDWIDE, meaning that she is known and loved INTERNATIONALLY. She doesn’t NEED to EVER have a #1 album in the US because THE REST OF THE WORLD is checking for her. Furthermore, a #1 album in the US is NO GUARANTEE of that album’s longevity or success, as evidenced by the #1 albums whose sales dropped significantly the 2nd week, and struggled to go gold, let alone platinum, after a year.

    Rita should be thankful for those Rihanna comparisons, because otherwise, no one would care enough to Google her, let alone listen to her Rihanna-rejected tracks. She better hope that her US album doesn’t end up getting shelved due to lack of interest from the general public. It was supposed to come out this month, right? And it looks like it’s gotten pushed back. All the promotion she’s gotten and still, she can’t her album released on time in the US. THAT is more kii-worthy than Rihanna not having a #1 album in the US.

    Sam, seriously. Stfu. You love Ri, that’s so evident. Rita Ora f****** sucks, get over it. And the whole “she’s never had a #1 album” argument is gettung old. Your beloved Pink is just now getting her first #1 album, 12+ years into her career w/ the same amount if albums. Yet, Ri has sold more albums, more live tickets, and has more accolades overall. Sam, you’re pathetic. I wonder if a Rita post will ever grant you 1,000+ comments. This blog survives on Rihanna.

    sharon Replied:

    I think the reason why everybody is on about the #1 album thing is because people see rihanna as just a recording artist. pink is more developed as an artist more than rihanna is. She’s seen as a true artist so it doesnt matter. peope only see rihanna as a person who can have alot of hits but not as much success as others. thats why when people mention rihanna not having a number 1 album in the us its shocking to them because they think thats just what she wants and needs because she has so many hits.

    You’re NOT going to be a f****** Rihanna. EVER.

    You don’t have her talent, you don’t have her look, her beauty, and on this rate, you’ll never even outsell her lowest-selling era.

    LEAVE BEYONCE’S immaculate black p**** lips from your tongue, LEAVE the f*** outta her. She’s a LEGEND, and does NOT want to befriend no FLOP CUNTS like you.

    Look what you’ve done to our FANBASE!

    They’re blaming your FLOPPAGE on US!

    They think BEYONCE with all of her accompalishments and all of her success IS JEALOUS FROM RIHANNA. While that’s ENTIRELY WRONG and we could do NOTHING ABOUT IT!

    All because of you DISASTROUS WHITE ASS!

    If you already know you ain’t gonna stop FLOPPING, and serving as THE BIGGEST DISASTER IN THE HISTORY OF UNIVERSAL MUSIC, then QUIT!

    Q U I T ! ! !

    There are already MORE TALENTED artists WITH BIGGER POTENTIAL who can’t move on because of your b**** ass.

    Afraid you’ll go back on London streets? DON’T WORRY! Jay-Z will offer you to CHANGE BLUE’S DIAPERS!!!

    Although not a fan of either, i still have to give Rihanna props. Although not the best singer she has worked her way up to the person she is today without having to mention Beyonce or Jay – Z in every interview (Rita’s becoming as bad as Kelly Rowland, as if its in her contract to mention their names)
    Although Rita is an okay singer, she would’ve avoided the comparisons by coming out with a different image and not one that was so similar to your current label mate at that period, she should’ve waited till Rihanna either ditched the blonde or prior. TGJ really needs to stop boosting up Rita’s vocals, she maybe be a better singer than Rihanna but she’s not as good as her real vocal comparisons like Jessie J, Pixie Lott, Alexandra Burke …. to name a few. (see TGJ posted video)
    I also await the us album or a new one because no matter the comparisons the album is rubbish

    Rita’s success is determined on her being pitted against Rihanna, the moment Rita starts to get compared to the people you mentioned above her career goes down the drain as it will become apparent that her vocals are really not all that. Rita’s reviews for her album were so,so and fell down the charts as quickly as Christina’s Bionic (no shade) and her stage presence slated (after 3 number 1′s she should be headlining her own U.K tour by now) but i think that the label know it wont go well. I suggest Rita distance from Rhi, Bey & Jay and start on a new album pronto

    Here’s the bottom line – Rita Ora will not be a success in the United States. She does not have the “It” factor. Rita can sing and howl all she wants but it doesn’t make a difference because she ain’t got it. I’m no big fan of Rihanna, but she’s GOT IT. She’s beautiful, exotic, s***, and although not a great singer she can carry a note. Rita can sing but that’s it. She’s not attractive and for Rita to even compare herself to Beyonce is a FAIL.

    So HOORAY for Rita having 3 number one songs in the UK and having a brief number one album in the UK. However, she is NOT a hit in the all too important USA market and I doubt she’ll ever be. She’s just not that hot.

    You can over-hype her all you want, Sam, but Rita will never rise above being a local act in the UK. She’ll be lucky to not get dropped by next year.

    I don’t Like Rihanna but JoJo said something in a interview that would make me change my opinion of rihanna.

    JoJo: “But at the end of the day everybody brings something to the table, and even if we feel like certain artists aren’t deserving because they don’t have, quote/unquote, raw talent or whatever, they obviously have something that’s appealing and I can’t be mad at that. I think there’s something for everyone. Honestly, I respect that.”

    Got to diss Rihanna to even bring attention to Rita, when every Rita page (with a Rih diss) gets about 70 comments, Rita by her self gets less then 10. And look at the home page and who have the most comments? Rihanna, meaning Rih and the navy makes this site.

    navy threatened? hold on one minute

    did we all forget that poll tgj had asking something like will you be buying oras album and it had so many nos that sam took it down. It was not just the navy several bey stans said they would not support rita. so have several seats.

    plus rita has sold less than 100k copies world wide, she has been promoting all year that is an actual flop, her three uk number 1s did not help her sell albums in the uk. rihanna might not have a us number 1 but that didnt stop every single album except for her first from going platinum, and actually selling 1 million despite how long it took ttt.

    @FAF,

    with all of your comments you still have never addressed why it is that pfrr is platium yet has not even sold over 600k.
    it is certified platinum but has not even sold 1 million. while her album has yet to sell over 2 million world wide.

    hell rihanna’s music of the sun has sold around the exact same numbers, oh wait it sold more world wide and that is her lowest selling album.

    There was no way Rihanna was singing rejected beyonce tracks and shading Bey; rih was no trying dress like Beyonce; talk in her accent and copy beyonce whole swag. There was no way Rihanna at 17 was a clone of Beyonce.

    Rita looks like a crackhead with nappy black roots, dried out blonde hair and prostitute red lips. She aint cute and does not have that it factor. I don’t care how good she sings. She’s wack and will be dropped. Mark my words. (P.S. Alexandra Burke and Leona Lewis also had #1′s in the UK and where are they now?)

    The reason Rita is not successful is becoZ she is in your face, so people don’t find her interesting. The name dropping has actually hurt her chances of ever being taken serious. This blog is hurting her more by keeping this Rihanna comparism alive. Rihanna is one of a kind, continuing to pit this girl against her will be a dissaster. This new angle she is trying to take now of putting her name next to Beyonce is gonna hurt her even more becoz beyonce’s fans are crazy and they are only tolerating her to please Beyonce. She needs to scrap this whole album and start over.

    Rita Ora sounds like a british Nicki Minaj trapped in a washing machine (but on-key). She is mediocre, her pitch is always off, she avoids her choruses, and has a low voice with no range. She is no great singer.

    i don’t know what’s your problem with riri , but i think the problem is that you are pressed. speaking of quality , rihanna is better. what’s the point of having a great voice but can’t use it in a beneficial way to your career ?!!!!!!

    and the queen of pop is “MADONNA” , and she wasn’t the greatest voice of them all other divas , but she had that “star quality” ! the same thing rihanna will always have.

    rihanna is more appealing , but not the most talented , and this business is not about talent since britney spears’s ” baby one more time” , so let it go pressed queens ……………….

    and isn’t this the same “ORA” who said she take being compared to rihanna as a ‘compliment ‘ ?!!
