This Sunday, Rita Ora is set to enjoy her first UK #1 album with her debut effort ‘ORA’, three years after signing to Jay Brown‘s ever growing company, Roc Nation.

Responsible for crafting many of the album’s cuts, this week saw the singer reveal how Coldplay front man Chris Martin played an vital role in its structure- crediting him for his part in crafting its track list.

Her explanation below…


She may be able to rake in the numbers when it comes to moving singles, but it seems Rihanna is struggling to succeed outside of music yet again.

For, after her debut movie ‘Battleship’ broke the record for being the lowest grossing movie with a budget of $200 million or more, her first television series ‘Styled To Rock’ has met a PR crisis this week- following embarrassingly low viewing figures.

While the latest headlines surrounding ‘Wide Awake’ wailer Katy Perry have unfavorably detailed her personal life, her professional dealings are continuously on the up-and-up.  With endorsements from GHD and Adidas (to name a few), the pop princess can now add PopChips to that growing resume.

The smartfood brand that is already growing in popularity may see a spike in interest with Perry as its postergirl.  See the behind the scenes action below:


As reported here, Young Money members Nicki Minaj & Tyga are taking their signature stylings to ‘Get Low’ – the latest offering of Waka Flocka Flame.

“Rihanna who?”.

The above, albeit a cruel reality, is the sentiment many are hoping is shared once Brit sensation Rita Ora finally touches down in the US, for the launch of her debut album there.

Sure to intensify the rivalry that already exists within their fan bases, this week saw Rita unveil plans both the pair’s ‘Roc Nation‘ has in store to push her brand in the impossibly difficult market.

Plans, which may inadvertently see Rita beat her rival in being the first starlet at the label to score a #1 debut album.
