rita ora how we do video 550x331 Rita Ora: I Didnt Expect My Success

1.3 million UK units sold.

3 #1 singles.

1 #1 album.

The above, all achieved within the space of a year. Only right then, that ROC belle Rita Ora is hailed as the UK’s fastest rising and most celebrated Pop debutante.

Of course, while herimage would be better served if it centred around her stunning voice and not her friendship with Cara Delivingne, the last few months have seen score wins some of her closest rivals didn’t score until years after their debut.

Now watch as she discusses her ascent with Rio Ferdinand’s #5 below. An interview, which sees her admit that her success came as a surprise to her.

Check it out after the jump…

As work continues on her second album, here’s hoping more effort is placed in endorsing Rita the musician and not Rita the celebrity. For, despite the critical acclaim she nabbed with ‘ORA‘, recent months have seen her develop a brand of celebrity that she- in keeping it really real- is far too talented to indulge in.

Fact of the matter is…. Rita has the talent and aesthetic to nab Rihanna’s notoriety while enjoying Gwen’s credibility -if armed with the right material and promo that puts emphasis on the talent showcased below…

Your thoughts?

      You don’t have to look like a movie star
      Ooh I think you’re good just the way you are
      Tell me if you could would you up and run away with me?

      You don’t have to roll like a millionaire
      Baby I would go with you anywhere
      We don’t need no gold, we’ll be shining anyway, we’ll see

      You know can nobody get down like us
      We don’t … ’till we get enough
      C’mon, turn it up ’till the speakers pop
      Break it down, show me what you’ve got

      Ooh my my baby don’t be shy
      I see that spark flashing in your eye
      My heart beats fast ’cause I want it all
      So baby come with me and be my ooh la la

      Take my hand, we can go all night
      And spin me round just the way I like
      It feels so good, I don’t wanna stop
      So baby come with me and be my ooh la la

      You don’t have to wear no designer clothes
      Just as long as we’re dancing on the floor
      Fingers in my hair and I’m letting go tonight, so free

      These are the lyrics of Britney’s upcoming song Oh La La for The Smurfs 2.

        Tbh I do have to agree with RL today because I see it too. This Cara girl spends more time in the clubs than on the cat walk and it looks so trashy. Rita’s music is s*** but her voice isn’t and she needs to drop the dead weight because so many people want to her flop already.

        At the end of the day if Rita is too blind to see half of the people in her camp are using her she is a fool. There’s one new leech she’s been hanging around with, I don’t know his name but he’s black and begs it with any celebrity he can get his hands on. When I saw pictures of him and her in Las vegas I literally wanted to scream. She needs to wise up and focus on her music really.
