Major: Rita Ora Rockets To #1 / Breaks Own Record

Published: Sunday 13th May 2012 by David

Whether you like it or not, Rita Ora is here to stay.

Indeed, for one reason or the other, there are some who wrote the starlet off as a 1 hit wonder, following her success with the dubstep smash ‘Hot Right Now’.

Well, today will see many a word swallowed, now that she’s scored her second UK #1 single- breaking an enormous record in the process.

Details below…

With her single ‘RIP‘ now atop the UK singles chart, Ora has broken her own record for scoring the fastest selling song of the year, following ‘Hot’s speedy ascent to the same spot.

Snatching the position from X Factor Head girl Tulisa, ‘RIP‘ also kicks dust in the face of Rihanna‘s ‘We Found Love’ and ‘Where Have You Been’, despite the latter coming out six weeks ago.

So, now she’s proved her worth as a singles act, here’s hoping Team Rita is readying a campaign centered on her LP.

A campaign, strong enough to ensure the project is worthy of her growing hype and slick enough to convince the public Ora is worth their $10.

This, we think, can only happen if she ups her performance game (structured choreography>mindless jumping) and exaggerates  her ‘British‘ during US promo. Yep- glottal stops galore.

For, with model looks, quality vocals and a personable nature, Rita’s assets make her a global act just waiting to happen. Let’s just hope her team are well equipped to make the most of them.

Your thoughts?

  3. LOL May 13, 2012

    OH @THAT GRAPE JUICE

    >>>>>>> PLEASE, SHUT THE F*** UP!!!!!!!

    WE FOUND LOVE “WAS NOT” NUMBER ONE IN THE UK IN 2012. IT WAS NUMBER ONE IN 2011 AND TOPPED THE CHARTS FOR SIX WEEKS. WTF?

    “WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN” & “YOUNG”WAS RELEASED LAST WEEK.

    NOW, I AM NO FAN/STAN OF RIHANNA, BUT PLEASE – THE WEAK, FARCICAL & PRETENTIOUS JOURNALISM IS REALLY STARTING TO P*** ME OF!!!

  5. DTG May 13, 2012

    I think they should release “RIP” in the U.S., I like it better than “How We Do”.

  6. RocketsAway May 13, 2012

    Seriously. ‘R.I.P.’ needs to RIP quicktime – it’s truly awful. And the fact that this girl can break through with such awfulness is truly telling of great management, for her talent is barely there, yet Sam’s continuous efforts to please his connections over his dignity by praising her talentless self is a true sign of music losing it’s way. For despite the hype, she really is not Hot Right Now. However people have been brainwashed to believe she is. Good luck with that. Her strained pipes are coming to deafen you in an arena near you soon enough.

  7. Beyhive May 13, 2012

    rocketsaway why the anger, why the hate?
    Nobody put a gun to anyones head and said BUY THIS song. People buy what they like so they bought this, so build a bridge and get over it baby.
    If you don’t like Rita why are you so eager to comment on her, you’re clearly obsessed and your tone leads me to believe your anger towards her stems from something deeper. Placed a bet she would fail and lost it?

  8. ADELE: THE QUEEN OF POP May 13, 2012

    LMFAOOOO Jay-Z really pushing this girl with all his force and she playing along! She already has TWO number ones in her arsenal. She won’t be as successful and popular as Rihanna has gotten but she will replace SLUThanna no doubt. Rita Ora can actually sing, and has a beautiful voice. She is way more talented than CRACKHEADhanna. Sluthanna is struggling to sell mroe units of TALK THAT FLOP and has not even got platinum in the U.S. and the album has been out for

  9. ADELE: THE QUEEN OF POP May 13, 2012

    Continued….

    Talk That FLOP has been out for 6 months LOOL! She got all dat promo!! NOT to mention she is being the face of a FILM DIASTER, BattleFLOP? this aint her, she should take a break like her friend KATY PERRY! TALENTLESS H*** need to take notes and follow in the footsteps of GODDESS ADELE! THE QUEEN OF MUSIC AND THE RULER OF THE BILLBOARD 200 ALBUMS CHART!!!!!!

  10. KAT DELUNA FAN May 13, 2012

    JAY IS WINNING
    He is pimping those 3 😆 😆

    congrats Rita !!!
    more hits in your future

  11. JAKE (KING BEY, QUEEN SLAY-DELE & LADY GREAT-GA = 21ST CENTURY LEGENDS. #DEAL) May 13, 2012

    @ADELE: THE QUEEN OF POP

    PREACH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL.

    THESE MINIATURE POP-TARTS HAVE NOTHING ON “QUEEN SLAY-DELE”.

  12. riri May 13, 2012

    Good for her….

    At least she can sing

  13. RITA ORA May 13, 2012

    Hahaha JAY Z don’t give a f*** about that crackhead, COCKSUCKER Rihanna. This B**** will be a nobody SOON enough. THAT FLOP b**** is OVER and R.I.P TO THE FAMOUS CRACKHEAD. I WANNA PARTY & B******* over my 2 Number Ones. HOLLA! *blows kisses*

  14. Girrrl May 13, 2012

    Ok Rita is doing big things in the UK. Can she crossover outside of her territory like Rihanna did in the US although she is from Barbados? I have yet to hear any of her songs on the radio here.

  15. MsThing485 May 13, 2012

    I have zero animosity towards Rita. Despite the arguable over-hype, I see the actual talent in her. Unlike a certain other one who is overhyped, but doesn’t have a shred of talent to back it up. And I also like the more urban/R&B-ish “RIP” more than the poppier “How We Do.”

  16. KAT DELUNA FAN May 13, 2012

    @ROCKET
    Please sit down,yall said te same about gaga,adele,perry….
    rita came to win #deal
    l hope she has a track with drake to break the us market quicker 😈

  17. Dhots fired May 13, 2012

    Two number 1s and the fastest selling song in 2012 and its only May LOL you have arrived princess Rita. Gotta love the haters still underestimating her; she’s here to RIP the girl on top Go Rita!!

  18. Uhh Okaii May 13, 2012

    Congrats to Rita…cause she got the haters mad..reaaallll mad..keep hating on her she’s just gonna prove even more that she deserves this

  19. Beyhive May 13, 2012

    GIRRRRL.
    Barbados is NOT Rihanna’s domestic territory because she was never signed to a Bajan label, she was an act signed to a US label who just happens to be from Barbados therefore she is not a CROSSOVER act.

    Neither is Rita, because although she is from the UK she is signed to a US label who are going to launch her debut, she and rihanna did not have careers in their homeland before being signed in the US.

    Beenie Man, Shakira, Adele are examples of crossover acts because they are signed to labels in their homeland and were THEN picked up by the US.

  20. KAT DELUNA FAN May 13, 2012

    @GIRRRL
    Of course,give rita a minute and she’ll big there.A feat with wayne,drake,perry or JAY-Z later ahahhh

    Stop talking about the non singing goat,I already told you Roc nation is doing everything for Rita to be biGGER.Deal

  21. Virtuoso Intellect May 13, 2012

    Well this ought to shut the rhitards up. Singles is their territory moreso in the UK. no use coming here to complain about the song now. You already had that chance when it was newly released now its no1 and the fastest seller of the year so far so obviously she/her people have zero regrets over it. A new pop artist needs to build up her stats and Rita is doing handsomely. Congratz

  22. winning May 13, 2012

    Rita… white girl check from the UK check singing black music check copying black style check have blacks behind her …how can she lose

    and who cares …Im still not checking for her nor Jessie J nor any of these pretenders

  23. Dustin May 13, 2012

    Uh… Sorry Sam but you’re just dumb on this one. Stop comparing her to Rih Rih. I don’t even like Rihanna but the comparisons beyond look are stupid and baseless. Rita should absolutely NOT be incorporating choreography to her stage act. She is a VOCALIST. You don’t see people insisting that Tamia or Mary J include dancing in their stage act, so why should Rita? It’s not a prerequisite. I’m not saying that she’s that caliber vocalist yet but she can certainly get there. Bottom line is that her instrument is her voice. Forcing her to learn how to dance will only detract from the surprising quality of her voice in a live setting. You can set a stage on fire with killer live vocals and stage presence. Just sayin

  24. Verve May 13, 2012

    You know you’re on your way when you have haters…even though, for the most part, the only people who seem to have something negative to say are Rihanna fans, who’re threatened by what her possible success could mean for Rihanna.

    I predict by the end of 2012, Rita will have emerged in the U.S. as the one to watch.

  25. POP ROYALTY ( RéVolution) May 13, 2012

    I’m ready FOR YA.

  29. JohnVidal (RIPWhitney-true great) May 13, 2012

    Major??? This fake and generic #1´s are not major
    But I´ll tell you this, it is just what Rihanna has been doing the whole time, absolutely nothing else. So mission accomplished 🙂

  30. Jessicaaaaa May 13, 2012

    @Girllll Rihanna musically started in the US not Barbados. She did NOt “crossover” from Barbados to the US. She came on the scene in the US the same time she did in Barbados and I’ve heard How You Do on New.York City’s biggest Radio station Z100…it actually was #6 on their countdown

    Congrats Rita! Everyone will try to explain why you’re #1 even going as far as saying its because of this site Lmao. Like TGJ makes people go out and purchase a damn song. Oh and RIP was released last week Sunday 🙂

    BTW Mediabase: How We Do (Party) +0.606

    Let’s remember “We Are Young” by fun. was released in November of last year and is now slaying charts so laugh at How We Do now…summertime is coming 😉

  31. yeyay May 13, 2012

    Why isn’t this the First US single? WAY Better than How We Do…at least send this to Urban Radio in the US, this S*** is Mad Hot!!!!

  32. True blood May 13, 2012

    Yep when u get haters you’re on your way to superstardom. Once vogue, elle, and marie clare get there hands on her, a new “it” girl will be crowned. The navy knows this so they hating hard LOL
    @sam not everyone dances Rita can sing, she doesnt need too. She puts on a great show right now.

    @True Blood

    I AGREE!! this is her style. why should she be some commercial act that clearly wouldn’t be her. everybody doesn’t have to dance and pat their p**** That Grape Juice staff. and exaggerateher British? thank goodness Rita doesn’t look to you guys for any advice.

    Rita needs to continue being who she is and that’s it

  41. Gilberto May 13, 2012

    @TGJ
    You guys should post how badly Battleshit is flopping! According to Box Office Mojo, It merely grossed $13 million in the entire world this week. LMFAO! MAJOR FLOP. It only grossed $215 million to date. Avengers grossed 3 times more in less time (US not included). And Battlecheap has already left the top 10 charts almost everywhere (UK included).

  42. Cockiness May 13, 2012

    the funny thing about it is she wont be there for long cuz we all know WHB will slay her……………

  43. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) May 13, 2012

    Congrats to her. The more success she gets the more creative control she will be able to demand, which is a good thing for her, given how I believe she can do much better than the tracks she’s already released.

    P.S : I’ve said it many times already, to the point that I’m starting to sound like a broken record, but can you stop trying to big her up by using Rihanna’s name. This does Rita no favours, especially when the hype is based on lies and inaccuracy. Of course ‘RIP’ will be higher than ‘WFL’ which was released 9 months ago and ‘WHYB’ which hasn’t even been officially released in the UK. Congratulations to Rita, well deserved, and no comparisons needed.

  54. EnRanc May 13, 2012

    LOL! Rita is kicking RIhanna’s ass in the UK (which is a market that Rihanna fans like to brag about.) And she did it w/o having to change her hairstyle 50 times or phony up soap opera drama with some dude who beat her up.

    Roc Nation just got confirmation on who is the promotional money (Rita) and who ain’t (Rihanna).

  55. Ugh May 13, 2012

    B**** is bland and boring. White folks are not checkin’ for no UK chick unless she’s Adele, and the 106/EBT crowd are gonna eat this b**** alive. Keep suckin Jay’s d*** though and she might can keep a deal…………………………………..

    I AM WIPING AWAY REAL TEARSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I MEANNNNNNNNN the dust is being kicked in our face and we ain’t even released S*** and we in in the top 10 in the UK.

    So that BEGS the question what in all of the Ice’s Brown plump ass fuckery is being kicked into Fossil-yonces mug with her ALREADY releasing IN THE UK and being a cool #812714141091225931 on the LIST???? That bum must be getting the whole f****** SAHARA DESERT kicked into hers!!!!!

    LOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!!

  57. Hush May 13, 2012

    @UGH
    When you can actually sing, you don’t need to suck d***. Knee pads, chapstick and mouth wash are what non-talents like Rihanna have to keep on hand in order to sustain a career. (Although I get the feeling Rihplaced probably doesn’t use mouth wash after she’s done. Pee-yew! B****** mouth probably smells like the mens room at Grayhound.)

  58. LOL May 13, 2012

    @ BEYHIVE…your ignorance is hilarious. there is a difference between stating facts and hate. I agree she is not talented but et again due to a visual preference she is up there with all the talentless people. Majority of the comments are ‘she’s hot’ therefore indicating that she is only appreciated because of her image. Model but don’t come into the music industry with your s*** vocals and wack performances and expect to be appreciated by those who actually APPRECIATE GOOD MUSIC AND TALENT….RITA ORA IS WACK so stop sucking her crack

  59. Meh May 13, 2012

    Lol at Sahara desert. I cannot understand why Beyonce fans celebrating like Rita getting number 1 is supposed to make Rihanna fans mad? Rihanna song doing good and not release in UK yet & Beyonce didn’t get number 1 in very long time in any country. End of Time also dont look like it doing too good. Maybe instead of focusing on Rihanna all time, Beyonce fans should be trying to promote End of time.

    rocketsaway why the anger, why the hate?
    Nobody put a gun to anyones head and said BUY THIS song. People buy what they like so they bought this, so build a bridge and get over it baby.
    If you don’t like Rita why are you so eager to comment on her, you’re clearly obsessed and your tone leads me to believe your anger towards her stems from something deeper. Placed a bet she would fail and lost it?

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    You TRIFILING Ass Holes need to look no further then this comment
    and answere your own questions as to why then or you so pressed over rihanna and you already know that rita is a BEGINNER and no matter how much money is thrown behind and in front of her if people don’t support her she will not survive, period.
    At any rate this site along with the bee hive or doing a super job of burying this chicks career before she can even get a fair shake. And if RIHANNA IS SO TERRIBLE why in the hell would she or your dumb asses thing the world is remotely ready for another RIHANNA. Just like jay started trying to GROOM RIHANNA to be another beyonce, the world did not see that come full circle because RIHANNA jumped out there and ‘Look At Her Now” Rita has got to find her own niche because the world already has Rihanna and shes not going no place but up higher.

    Record companies have bought Number 1 record’s for years
    its not new. Its how they corner the market.
    Rita seems like a nice girl, all the more reason to get away from Jay z as quick as possible before she’s reduced to an overworked alcoholic drug taking mess,
    such is Roc nation’s policy of exploiting talent , with no due care for theyre talents health.

    PLATINUM IN THE UK IS DIFFERENT FROM PLATINUM IN THE US….AND YES TTT IS A FLOP CONSIDERING RIHANNA’S SALES. IF U WANT TO SAY IT’S NOT A FLOP THEN YOU HAVE NO RIGHT CALLING ‘4’ A FLOP …JUST SAYING.

  71. Lax May 13, 2012

    Forget rihanna’s movie, forget rihanna number one’s just know that RIHANNA
    has to have something going on good to make this all important list now try and say
    the NAVY is lying about this. And another thing just so you’d know the talk about RIHANNA’S movie is something that can be thrown up at us, but just know that no matter what we or strong and we or many and we will support RIHANNA until
    “Battleship” sinks or swims to dry land, loosers….

    LOL @ Rihanna Haters.

    Lemme tell you this: Y’all make no sense. Just because she is at #1 on the Uk Single Charts, you brag about how she’s kicking Rihanna’s b***. LOL.
    I love Rita Ora, but she will NEVER be the success that Rihanna has: 6 #1’s in the UK, 11 #1’s in the US within 7 years of career!

    Talk That Talk was barely promoted, you stupid asses. She has only done FIVE performances (WFL on Grammy n Brits; TTT on Jonathan Ross and SNL; WHYB on SNL) of songs from TTT to promote it. She doesn’t care about TTT, but still it managed to sell 3 million copies WORLDWIDE! Do you think Rita will be able to even reach the 1 million mark? LOL Sitcho ass down, haters.

    Battleship’s box office is at $200,100,000, and it didnt even was released in the USA. C’mon haters, don’t hate just because your faves can’t do what Rihanna does. She dominates in every avenue.

    I ain’t here to argue about imaginary things, I WRITE FACTS.

  77. Meh May 13, 2012

    @Onyx from what I see alot of Rita “fans” are just very obsessed with Rihanna Beyonce fans hoping that she do better than Rihanna. Lol it sad but funny how people spend so much time obsessing over somebody they don’t like. They know all stats and latest gossip and Rihanna more than her fans lol. The only thing they seem know is how to request Beyonce songs so they do good.

  78. Meh May 13, 2012

    *they don’t seem* lol

  79. PYTFROMAL May 13, 2012

    Its not difficult to get a #1 in the UK. I don’t think she will be big in the US definitely not as big as Rihanna. The only people clinging on to this is people who dislike Rihanna. They wouldn;t be checking for Rita otherwise. BTW If she does blow up in the US, I’ll eat my words. She will join the likes of Alexandra Burke etc. Even Nicole Scherzinger has had a #1 in the UK but in the US she has been pretty irrelevant as a solo artist.

  80. Onyx May 13, 2012

    @Meh
    I agree with you 100%.

  81. Songscribe May 13, 2012

    LOL .. And this is why rihanna will continue to be a SUCCESS because you guys want her to FAIL so badly .. SMDH.

  83. DANIELT May 13, 2012

    LIES LIES AND MORE LIES!! SHE HASN’T BROKEN HER OWN RECORD, TULISA STILL THE FASTEST SELLING DEBUT OF THE YEAR BUT FAIR PLAY, HOT RIGHT NOW IS STILL THE FASTEST SELLING SONG OF THE YEAR. HOWEVER, GIVE WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN TIME TO CLIMB, IT PROBABLY WON’T REACH NUMBER 1 BUT IT IS OFF A NO.1 DOUBLE-PLATINUM ALBUM IN THE U.K THAT CAME OUT 6 MONTHS AGO PLUS THE FACT THE VIDEO ONLY PREMIERED A FOTNIGHT AGO. AN IN REGARDS TO WE FOUND LOVE, LET’S C R.I.P SPEND 6 WEEKS AT NUMBER 1 AND SELL A MILLION – NAH DIDN;T THINK SO. CONGRATS TO RITA, I LOVE THE SONG BUT TGJ JUST GIVE IT A REST!!

    LMFAOOOO Jay-Z really pushing this girl with all his force and she playing along! She already has TWO number ones in her arsenal. She won’t be as successful and popular as Rihanna has gotten but she will replace SLUThanna no doubt.

    No one wants that howling goat to fail just to fall into a well! LOL 🙂

    Okay, at the very least to visit a SINGING COACH and a DANCE INSTRUCTOR! I don’t think that’s too much to ask of a so called “music superstar” is it?

    Anyho, good luck to Rita Ora, the girl has actual singing ability. I hate Beyonce’s pet camel so I hope he doesn’t mis-manage her by trying to turn her into “baby Beyonce”!

  86. [email protected] May 13, 2012

    Mean while Rihanna lands her 21 top ten hit in the UK on the same day. Nah

    Don’t compare this chick to RiRi she can another Cheryl Cole,a few hit then flop.

    Just let her breath and stop comparing to someone who is way out of league.

    Good Day!!!

  87. CzarM May 13, 2012

    [email protected]’s silly ass fans. In every Rita Ora post, it’s predictable now…you clowns bitterly creep in trying to downplay Rita’s potential for success–even when Sam doesn’t bait you by bringing up Rihanna’s name in the synopsis. Then when you get frustrated and/or outargued, you pull Beyonce’s name out of your ass to divert attention away from the whole thing. You’re not being slick. You’re as transparent as Rihanna’s “talent.” This has s*** to do with Beyonce; mentioning her name is just your failed attempt to save face and change the subject because everyone can see that there is a shift happening in Rihanna’s camp; one that isn’t in her favor. Pathetic. You’re scared. Good. You probably should be.

    Rihanna’s fans keep on excusing TTT’s stalled sales by saying that she’s barely promoted it. Um?! You do know that that’s not a good thing, right? It’s Roc Nation’s job as her management to send her out to publicly promote her s*** in order to maximize its performance potential. If she’s not doing that, then something’s not right and it probably has something to do with them. Hell, she can’t book herself.

    In the meantime, while Rihanna twiddles her thumbs, changing her hairstyle every week in boredom and posting pictures of it on Twitter (in between having childish episodes with Chris Brown), Rita is popping up everywhere — getting the kind of exposure that most new artists don’t, and also arguably getting more than Rihanna is at the moment.

    What’s wrong with THIS picture?
    I know Rihanna’s fans aren’t that smart, but this isn’t a hard one to solve.

    Hell, they’re even giving Rita songs that were originally pitched to Rihanna, and having her perform snippets of Rihanna’s songs on stage in front of industry people, while she herself is nowhere in the crowd and probably isn’t aware of it happening. Man, that s*** ain’t cute. That’s like a cheating husband letting his mistress rummage through his wife’s closet while she’s away. At this point, I wouldn’t be surprised if behind Rihanna’s back, Roc Nation is arranging for Rita to take offers that originally came in for her.

    The bottom line is that Roc Nation is clearly throwing lots of time, effort and money behind getting Rita established, so much so that it’s beginning to look questionable how much of a priority the company sees Rihanna at this point. We’ve seen this happen before. Tommy Motolla replaced Mariah Carey with Jennifer Lopez….Puff replaced Mary J. Blige with Faith Evans…Lou Pearlman replaced Backstreet Boys with Nsync.

    Jay-Z is no fool. He knows how the game is played. It doesn’t matter how much success Rihanna’s had thus far, the industry is always looking for the next big thing to get behind…and I’m starting to see more and more Rita, and less and less Rihanna.

  88. Benron May 13, 2012

    Meanwhile In the U.s which is also known as the country RIHANNA IS BASED IN… And Where have you been isn’t even out Rih’s fans bought it on Itunes and requested it, so It made it to 8 on the chart over all! Yah, Maybe u guys shud try that for beyonce instead of DRAGGING people.

  89. skintightjeans May 13, 2012

    Never heard of this girl but I like her style and this song is hot!

  90. Benron May 13, 2012

    My comments are blocked so Im outie, And look at Rita, NO ONE WILL POINT OUT THAT IS RIHANNA’S SHIRT?

  91. Meh May 13, 2012

    @Czarm I only hear of Rita when I come to blogs. I am Rihanna fan and I am not threatened by Rita, she has alot to put in if she want to reach Rihanna status. Rihanna in her own lane and is doing very good still.

    The reason Rihanna fans bring up Beyonce in Rita post is because Beyonce fans try to troll pretending to be Rita fans because they angry Beyonce had really bad era and all singles didnt do good. You say Sam no mention Rihanna in write up but he did. He say Rita kicking dust in Rihanna face and that Rihanna song been out for 6 months in UK, when it is Beyonce who is his fave, who song been out for more than 6 months in UK and like someone say, not even on top 100 list. You mad that Rihanna fans bring that up when Beyonce fans in this post trying use Rita to ease pain of Beyonce not doing good? That is what transparent.

  92. Meh May 13, 2012

    You are silly,silly rita wore the shirt before the copycat.The h** stole the entire rita identity and image just in time for Jay-z to launch her career.
    Shut up idiot

  94. Auntie_Jackie May 13, 2012

    She’s doing wonderfully. If she wants to be successful in the U.S. she’s going to have to come harder–it’s very competitive here. By harder, I mean her singles need to be innovative and make her stand out. ‘How We Do’ is a great intro, but it’s not groundbreaking.

  95. CzarM May 13, 2012

    @MEH.

    I’m not mad at Rihanna fans bringing up Beyonce’s name. I just think it’s petty, spiteful and a sad attempt to divert attention away from the real issue — which is Rita’s becoming an in-house priority over Rihanna. Beyonce has nothing to do with THAT argument…so Rihanna fans bringing her name up in these Rita posts, IMO, is a p**** move to get out of having to address the real issue.

    Furthermore, who’s to say that everyone in favor of Rita is even a Beyonce fan…or that every Rihanna hater is a Beyonce fan? You do realize that there are people out there who aren’t Beyonce fans, and can’t stand Rihanna? To assume that every Rita supporter is an undercover Beyonce fan is a blanket assumption that’s being used to gloss over the topic of Rita and Rihanna having the same handler, with the former becoming more of a priority than the latter.

    Furthermore, I know that Sam mentioned Rihanna’s name in the post. I wasn’t talking about this post, in particular. Truth be told, though, that even when something is posted about Rita that doesn’t mention Rihanna’s name, RIhanna fans still charge into the posts on a defensive mission to assert her, because they know that Rita is generally being touted as a threat to her.

  96. Virtuoso Intellect May 13, 2012

    L ol in the age of itunes official release date have no value. Once the video is out, song is on radio and available on itunes …. It is released. Noone waits for official release dates when they can get it right now. Its just nice to see a talented young girl win. Enough of the rhitalentless and remix perrys. As for the queen Bey, smh dont be stupid, she can do whatever she wants, no need to dumb down her artistry for a few forgettable dance hits. Dont get too comfortable, If Bey targets chart hits next era, trust me chart hits is what she’ll get. In case u havent noticd there’s a formula for these cheap no1

  97. Meh May 13, 2012

    @Czarm She is in house priority because u see her overly hyped on blog that hates Rihanna??? lol Outside of blogs like this I’m not hear much of Rita and that is not a diss to Rita or means I as Rihanna fan threatened by her cause I’m not.

    You say Rihanna not priority but I think Roc Nation don’t have to do as much because she is established brand with good track record. Even so ‘Where have U been’ single getting quite good promotion from RocNation. She had alot of behind scenes stuff before video release and even break Vevo Record cause they build good hype for video. The video was well funded too. She so far do SNL and will do American Idol finale. That iss pretty good promo for ‘dissed” artist.

    I not saying every Rita supporter Beyonce fan but most of them from what I see on internet are. I read this blog alot before and I know names of Beyonce fans on here who using Rita to try to troll Rihanna fans. Even so you not even realize something you say that back up my point. You say

    “You do realize that there are people out there who aren’t Beyonce fans, and can’t stand Rihanna”

    Which is same thing I said. People trying to troll using Rita cause they cant stand Rihanna. Whether that be the obvious ones in Beyonce stans or others stans of artist the point the majority aren’t genuinely supporting Rita. There is agenda.

  98. the real xoxo May 13, 2012

    wow 2 #1 singles and no album out! thats impressive. she is so f****** hot!

  99. Deji May 14, 2012

    Listen to Afrodisiac by Teni! She’s the new Sade! Hot!!

  100. Va Va Voom May 14, 2012

    Once again, your information is incorrect. Tulisa sold 120K first week, Rita sold 105K, so she does not have the fastest selling #1 in the UK this year…

    So unprofessional.

  101. aynon May 14, 2012

    how did a post about rita ora become a beyonce vs rihanna war…people on this site are pathetic. does beyonce care? no, does rihanna care? the funny thing is beyonce and rihanna are friends.

    congratulations rita on all your success.

  102. LOLLLLLLLLLLLLL May 14, 2012

    FUNNY HOW EASILY PEOPLE ARE MANIPULATED TO FIGHT AGAINST EACH OTHER FOR NO REASON EXCEPT THEIR OWN STUPIDITY!!!!! LOLLLL!!!! WAKE THE F*** UP!!!

    ANYONE WHO FAILS SEE THAT RITA ORA IS UNIQUE AND VERY TALENTED IS AN IDIOT! AND ANYONE WHO ONLY WANTS TO ANGER RIHANNA STANS, BY USING RITA’S NAME / AT RITA’S EXPENSE, IS AN IDIOT AS WELL!

  103. ohreally May 14, 2012

    Oh the Navi is mad today!!! Battleship is flopping harder than RR. I think she needs a groupon special for this movie, it did wonders for her tour.
