Chart Topper: Rita Ora Rocks Rivals With Fresh Certifications

Published: Thursday 13th Mar 2014 by David

Though its label system has done a pretty good job of masking this fact, the UK rarely ever spawns homegrown hits.

Sure, while the ‘Official Charts’ may welcome the occasional Brit-bred track to its #1 spot, it’s often releases birthed by international acts that move truly impressive numbers, boasting longer tenure on the charts than performers who may nab impressive peaks but slip, trip and fall once their initial hype has died.

Fortunately for Rita Ora, she joins the likes of Adele, Ed Sheeran, Emeli Sande and the now disbanded JLS to become one of a few acts to see their material sell well after their release weeks, earning certifications set to make her the envy of many a Brit based Pop belle.

After peaking at #1 on the ‘Official Singles Chart‘, Ora‘s ‘How We Do (Party)’ soars to Gold status this year, after shifting 400,000 units in the UK, while its ‘Radioactive’ followup reaches the same milestone in Australia after moving 35,000 copies!

Silencing those who’d billed the star’s winning streak as a fluke, her silent but deadly sales run continues on well as her debut album ‘ORA’ catwalks its way to the Platinum mark, standing no more than 50,000 copies away from the milestone.
