Behind The Scenes: Rita Ora Shoots For ’17’ Magazine

Published: Friday 22nd Jun 2012 by David

It’s safe to say that Roc Nation are sparing no expense to ensure Rita Ora becomes the leading act on their star studded roster.

Generating enough pre-LP buzz to soar on US radio and land two UK #1 singles, this week saw Team Ora shoot for Hearst‘s ‘17 magazine’, in further support of her debut album ‘ORA’.


ORA, which reportedly features contributions from ‘Runnin’ maestra Azealia Banks.

Snaps from the shoot below…

        In 2005, Rihanna released her debut studio album, Music of the Sun, which peaked in the top ten of the Billboard 200 chart and features the Billboard Hot 100 top five hit single “Pon de Replay”. In less than a year, she released her second studio album, A Girl Like Me (2006), which peaked within the top-five in the United States, and produced her first Hot 100 number one single, “SOS”. Rihanna’s third studio album, Good Girl Gone Bad released in May 2007, spawned the international hit singles “Umbrella”, “Don’t Stop the Music”, “Take a Bow” and “Disturbia”, with an additional four singles being released. The album was nominated for nine Grammy Awards, winning Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for “Umbrella”. Her fourth studio album Rated R (2009), produced the top-ten singles “Russian Roulette”, “Hard” and “Rude Boy”, with the latter achieving the number-one spot on the Billboard Hot 100. Loud (2010), Rihanna’s fifth studio album, spawned the number-one hits “Only Girl (In the World)”, “What’s My Name?” and “S&M”. “We Found Love” served as the lead single from Rihanna’s sixth studio album, Talk That Talk (2011). The song was an international success, topping the charts in more than twenty countries.

    • virtuoso intellect June 22, 2012

      why are u posting all that? you are a salty b****

      does Rita’s increasing profile ruffle u so bad u have to seek solace in rihanna’s endeavors? the reference you’re trying to draw is stupid. rihanna wasnt covering vogue 4,5 years ago. she started from somewhere. Ur shade is baseless and dumbfounded

      • POP ROYALTY ( Révolution) June 22, 2012

        LOLZ 😀 , -4 only , i want -100 😆

        Thank U.

        Look in here Virtuoso , let’s just be real , Rita is Good , i’m gonna give her that , but she’s just not as what TGJ want us to believe she is , they want to put her in a specific LANE out of a sudden. they are using her just to attack Rihanna , that is not professional and just LOW and for real hurting Rita the most cuz anyway Rihanna has her fanbase who are always there for her . and u ask why i posted those : because of this damn lie : –> “leading act on their roster ?? really son , like really now ” , i know RN invest their money in her to be another Rihanna success wise , but the won’t force the people to like rita , they just can’t , even if rita was more talented or stuffs like that , everyone has a personal taste and just because someone is talented doesn’t mean they should be liked automatically because of that.
        and i’m sure this is what Rita gonna be suffering from on the long run if u asked me : the rihanna comparisons and people feeling that they are forced to like her just because she’s being supported by Jay-z/RN
        and u speak about rihanna wasn’t covering vogue or s*** like that ” she had endorsements in the past but whatever , do your homework , she’s hot since day one and U KNOW IT ” !!
        she was Bigger than what Rita is NOW when PDR got released , let’s not 😉 !! i don’t wanna go there and give u the basic navy s*** , huh ?

        i like Rita , but i just don’t like how TGJ use her for. using her to reach for someone who’s being in Time’s most influential persons in the world is just the plain BS. that’s all.
        increasing profile ?!! 😯
        No comment on that , god bless RN and their money money moeny.

      • Suicide Blonde June 22, 2012

        POP ROYALTY.
        Brilliant haha.

    • virtuoso intellect June 22, 2012

      oh stop with that nonsense. anytime tgj posts on rita u say they’re using her to attack rihanna. so they shdnt post on her at all then? blimey. if blogs werent carrying the rihanna “w**** of babylon” sexing jay-z rumours, would she be anywhere today?

      Rita is a new artist and there’s nothing wrong with RN pushing their artist. rih is not gonna bring home the bacon forever esp if she doesnt have the talent to hold water when her looks n sexuality fade out.

      • Lax June 22, 2012

        @POP ROYALTY ….Preach….

      • POP ROYALTY ( Révolution) June 22, 2012

        no , they need to ONLY post about her with No Rihanna name attached to it directly or indirectly. This Hurts Rita the most and is very annoying to Rihanna fans , but not Hurtful as it is to Rita , who , still crawls her way to be like Jessie J.
        i am not mad at Rita herself , i’m mad at the way some of Beyonce stans/rita haters/TGJ use her , u guys hurting her without realizing !! u do realize what you actually doing ? do u ?

        and Rihanna made it because of her looks and sexuality ONLY ? Da actual FUCkkkkkkkk ?? 😯 , ohKAAAAY.
        so where is Cassie then ? Where ? just where ? and P.diddy was the one behind her , where is she ?
        where ?

        exactly , looks doesn’t guarantee U a long career. :mrgreen:

        Exactly , so don’t be bitter Vir 😉 , and Rihanna is not there because of rumors , let’s she’s there because of HER personality and her style and her catchy songs . she’s appealing to lots of ppl. call it whatever ! i know you are not a fan of rih , but BOY , let’s not.

      • YouDoRealize… June 22, 2012

        lmao he must

  6. A June 22, 2012

    I like Rita…..

    but cant help but being shocked with all the money her label/team is spending on her already, when she isnt a star yet and doesnt have her first hit on US.

    I mean, she has potential to be big, but this is just the beggining of her era, and the label are treating her like she’s been on the industry for 5 years or something.

    Its kind of unfair how they give one artist all that money when they probably have many more talented artists on their roster.

    This industry works this way, as we already know.

    In the meantime, waiting for a new single from her, specially her second US one, hope its urban and has a hot beat and probably a featture

  7. slimsexy June 22, 2012

    Looking good rita.I c u.

  8. southern sway June 22, 2012

    Wonder when rihanna’s new album comes out amd she changes her hair color and style will rita do the same? Cause u can’t help but notice, this rita chick looks like a mini rihanna.
    Its clear to say it won’t help this chick be successful that way.

  11. slimsexy June 22, 2012

    if you think Rita’ profile is not increasing,then you must be on another planet.Damn even rolling stone magazine has taken note of her talent.having problem posting the link else would have shown you.

    • POP ROYALTY ( Révolution) June 22, 2012

      god bless RN and their money.

  12. YouDoRealize… June 22, 2012

    Rita could do something like red hair or short black hair. BUT then people would claim she’s copying Rih’s career.

    Yessssss and that is the reason the likes of yo bum b**** ass
    is always on a rihanna thread trying to talk her success down.

    And because of this insecurities of the Rihatards that is why many from the
    hive comes in droves to try and beat Rih’s wheel off even if she does good
    or bad now that let you know that Rihanna is cooking with gas and rita can be
    great if she works hard like rihanna has done and iks doing right now.

    Do you weak minded people think that rih is going to throw the towel in because of rita ora? You have got to be kidding me, if rih don’t back down from the likes of beyonce, alicia, mariah, maryj and others who is old enough to be her mammas then i know dam well rita isn’t a threat to no one other then herself, betta ask somebody!

  14. JJFan1814 June 22, 2012

    Call me when Rita Ora becomes a household name like the marvelous Rihanna is today.

    Rihanna, the name haters love to say and the word the Navy loves to stan for.

  15. Rita ora is the future June 22, 2012

    Smh Rihanna navy and their insecurities lol
    Rita got her haters going nuts. Going up on radio daily, increasing on itunes, magazine shoots with seventeen, vogue, and elle. All in three days. Go Rita.
