Thinking of putting out a new album this year, but your name isn’t Beyonce? Don’t.
The above, believe it or not, seems to be the gospel according to Pop Princess Rita Ora, when she reportedly dished on Pepsi-Bey‘s new LP with Capital FM this week, days before fans hope to catch its hotly anticipated lead single.
Reports indicate that when quizzed on the album, Ora declared:
“I heard some songs from the new album from Beyoncé and everyone else better sit down, she’s back..”
Perhaps the most honest endorsement of the Columbia backed release, Rita’s remarks comes days after she spoke to That Grape Juice.Net and opened up her own US album and months after her debut LP ‘ORA‘ spawned three UK #1 singles before debuting at #1 in the market.
As it stands, Miguel and Justin Timberlake have been cited as confirmed contributors to the album, which will receive a promo boost of epic proportions when the singer performs at the Superbowl 2013 Halftime show, on February 3rd.
So, will album #5 live up to Rita’s hype? Well, if the cuts are half as hot as the singer’s recent GQ spread, we’d say Ms.Ora’s on the money. However, until we know for sure, peep Rita’s last interview with TGJ shot last summer and look out for its follow up when it hits the net in the coming days.
