Rita Ora Nabs Jay Z Collaboration For New Album

Published: Thursday 31st Jul 2014 by David


‘Where’s Your Love?’ singer Rita Ora has named Jay Z as one of the many collaborators on her forthcoming US debut album today, months before its release.

Originally set for a September 2014 release internationally, the project was the topic of discussion during Ora’s recent interview with German magazine ‘Bravo’, where she revealed:

There are people on it who I would never even have dreamed of: Jay Z and Prince for example.

Her announcement comes seven years after the rapper first collaborated with Pop princess Rihanna on her #1 single ‘Umbrella’, and six years after he was introduced to Rita, whom he signed to his ‘Roc Nation’ management company/label, also home to Melanie Fiona and ‘Acceptable in the 80s’ producer Calvin Harris.

    Is he still trying with her?

    One does have to do their bit for charity, I guess…..

    • Jenn August 1, 2014

      He won’t be trying for much long just wait… Not after she is the real reason behind his marital issues….wait next year to hear that he dropped her…

  3. ItsCheryl2BH July 31, 2014

    This girl’s entire career is based on favors and it’s PISSING ME off. First of all she gets signed to Roc when there are much better singers than her in the UK, then she uses her connections to get ahead and it’s not fair. Everybody knows that the only reason she gets any attention is cos David promotes her like she’s Beyonce or something and that’s f****** b******* cos people come on here thinking she’s doing well when she’s not.

    • GyalLikeRita July 31, 2014

      OH SHUT THE F*** UP B****! SHUT UP! Rita is killing it because she can sing and people like her sense of style so what’s the problem? Instead of you to wonder why Cheryl has never even had a US release date you’re talking about Queen Rita.
      POOOOOOOOOOSSSEEEY. Eat it ok? I’ve had enough of your s***! And so what if David promotes her?

    • Jenn August 1, 2014

      Rita Ora does not have far to go befor she is dropped.. Sleeping with your boss and causing problems in his marriage will get u no where far. And there is a reason y beyonce don’t check for her anymore.. Rita is a home wrecker

  6. BanjeeRiri July 31, 2014

    Real talk, all of this fascinating to watch if you ask me. This blog is single handed responsible for making this wannabe model seem like she’s a super star when she’s just as local as Cheryl. Must be nice to have friends who work for the blogs.

  7. Fancy BISH July 31, 2014

    Jay helped Bey get her first super smash as a solo artist (CLASSIC), he helped Rihanna on the song that made her a superstar and household name (CLASSIC)….pressure boo boo 😉 Rita has her first Top 40 hit in the US with Iggy..it’s #29 this week on the Billboard Hot 100, up 16 spots 😉 Bye!

    • WhenItComesToBey July 31, 2014

      Jay helped Beyonce? No dear, Beyonce helped Jay get onto Pop radio. CIL would have slayed with or without Jay so please go back and reread your history books deary.

      • Fancy BISH July 31, 2014

        ummm…NO BOO BOO. The reason why I and many people got into Crazy In Love was because of Jay who gave ya girl SWAG…don’t forget, Sean Paul was on her follow up boo boo….she even said her record label didn’t think she had a hit on the album! It’s a collaboration for a reason 😉

      • WhenItComesToBey July 31, 2014

        See here b****, you won’t be the one to tell me about my fave’s career. Beyonce did not need collaborations to slay because it was Jay who NEEDED her. Get that in your stupid head ok?

    • Fancy BISH July 31, 2014

      HAHAHAHA…BISH, remember Drunk In Love?….gave ya girl her first top 10 in YEARS…yeah, JAY BISH 😉

      • Fancy BISH July 31, 2014

        AND while we at it, Jay collaborated with JT on his first top 10 in years…Kanye hasn’t been in the Top 10 since….N***** In Paris…Kanye just said he has a huge hit on his new album and some of the bars sounds like something JAY would say 😉 Nicki new album is called what? THE PINK PRINT…she’s inspired by who? Bye! 😉

  8. #Dismissed July 31, 2014

    Why in the hell did Jay sign this girl? Why couldn’t he sign other black girls. He’ll we need black girls in the music industry. Whora is a Rihanna wanna be. She copies Riri’s every move.

  9. SlayritaLegendORA July 31, 2014

    B****** are mad that Rita is snatching and slaying without a SINGLE to f*** to give. NOT A SINGLE ONE. Rita came through and is more famous than most of yall faves put together so you can keep on with your excuses because she’s not going to stop being the bad b**** that she is.

    • 2ForTinashe July 31, 2014

      Not you acting like Rita is where she is today because of her talent honey. I mean let’s keep it 100, the streets know the truth tea and the truth tea is that Sam and David are the only reason she’s relevant and people’s problem with that is that they’ve given people the impression that she’s famous worldwide when the REFUCKINGALITY is that she can only chart in the UK and Australia.

      My fave would be just as famous too if she had one of her ninjas running a popular blog and dedicating two or three threads to her everyday.

      • SlayritaLegendORA July 31, 2014

        And what does it say about your flopulous fave that this so called popular blog isn’t giving her half as much attention as they give to Rita. Isn’t that why you’re really mad? Isn’t that why you’re more pressed than a penny in Precious’ back pocket honey? I think it is. Keep struggling though, it suits you.

  11. Rosie July 31, 2014

    Why do her stans make it out to be like everyone actually likes her? How much d*** did she have to suck for all these collabs? And she’s not a fashion icon at all, she was dragged by everyone at the Met Gala and 99% of the time when I look at her candids at least one person in the comments is comparing her to Rihanna.

    • BlackWidowBaby July 31, 2014

      Why is Iggy slaying Lana on the charts? Isn’t Lana supposed to be bigger than her?

      • Molly July 31, 2014

        Rosie stans for both so stop trying to start ish.

    • Molly July 31, 2014

      Lol you better go off sis… Rita still hasn’t proved herself as a solo artist. she needs Iggy, Jayz, Calvin Harris etc

        when is R#8 dropping?

    • former rihanna stan July 31, 2014

      Lana Del ray’s dude is a big deal in Fashion. You do know he is close friend of Rta ORA and he respects her.

      • CATFISH CAREY July 31, 2014


    • former rihanna stan July 31, 2014

      Rita is also friends with Georgina Chapman, who owns Marchesa. She gives Rita the best dressed from haute couture. Her husband is Harvey weinstein, one of the most POWERFUL MEN In hollywood. Rita Ora went to a Stage school and acted in show when she was 14. If she gets rave reviews fro her role in 50 shades…………..There goes Rihanna’s chance at Hollywood career.

      Dereke blasberbg is friend of her and Kyle. He is very important in fashion. One of Rita’s BFF works for addidas. She is also friends with Alexa Chung.

      • sashay July 31, 2014

        Friends with Alexa Chung???? Is that suppose to be an accolade. If it is then her alleged man (Chris Martin) is presently on a ‘I love Rihanna’ tour letting everyone know how much he thinks of her. So STFU with these two irrelevant b******.

      • former rihanna stan July 31, 2014

        Chris clearly likes skinny blondes. He is speaking well of Rihanan cos she is working on her new album. When it comes to his personal love life he is with Alexa and keeping it on the low. You shut the f*** up. Rih is washed up, used drugged w****.

      • sashay July 31, 2014

        Last time I looked Alexa was an anorexic brunette..as irrelevant as Rita Ora..tell them both to stop sucking married men d**** and maybe someone will respect them. As for Rhi you would love to see her fail but she will not. Too many people THAT MATTER love and respect her.

      • former rihanna stan July 31, 2014

        Rih is self destructing and nO ONE GIVES A S***. DO u think anyone cares that she does COKE, MOLLY AND various prescription medication? RIHANNNA sleeps around way more than those two. Chris still likes skinny white women and they ar both white. Alexa is not irrelevant. If Rita is so irrelevant why is she making millions ?

        WHAT people care? Jay don’t care about anyone but his wife and kid. He can sign any b**** and make money.

        WHO respects her? The men who f*** and dump her?

        Hollywood? Wyhen was the last time she was in a movie? Rita has been in 2 SPEAKING MOVIES

        FASHION? They used to respect LADY GAGA and look how that went

        FASHION industry ACTUALLY LIKE AND CARE about RITA. THEY hang out with her oN THEIR DAYS OFFF. THEY hangs with her FRIENDS FROM back in the day.

        Who in the fashion industry hang with melissa forde?

  12. Molly July 31, 2014

    Katy Perry just released her new music video which is amazing!

    Sam and other Rita fans:

    I want to say sorry for not giving Rita a chance. As you know, I was one of Rihnana’s ardent supported and I uses to diss rita. Well, I have had made a mistake. I think Rihanan is gheto sleazy trash who will burn out, no help needed and I will give Rita a chance. I do believe she is the best, most exciting dressed person in showing; she can sing ( we all knew that ) she has drive and she seems to rock the hell out life and has energy.

    I wish her good luck

    • QueenoftheNavy July 31, 2014

      I rebuke you! Oh b**** I rebuke you! You are a traitor!

        I rebuke you and that devil worship0 funk dug s*** you look up too. I could not stan for that demonic trash any longer.

    • Rihboy July 31, 2014

      Girl bye. Rita is a try hard. She cant sing or dance. Her albums or album idk how many she has, are deplorable. She is just a model that jayz is keeping around for damage control. Her endorsements are whack, and she parties in the shadows of a list celebs. Now ahe suck tommy hilfigers son off so she can have some funding for her next lp. Lord knows she cannot pay nobodies writer or stylist with funds from ora.

      • former rihanna stan July 31, 2014

        New clothing line with addidas

        New Fragrance with Donna Karan

        She is only 23

        she is good.

      • former rihanna stan July 31, 2014

        Rihanan does not even have any fashion deals for Fall / winter 2015. Her balmain deal only lasted for spring summer. Then olivier, who is fangirl, dropped her and put cara delevigne, the BFF TO……..RITA ORA.

        Rita is all over the fashion ads for fall / winter, the most important season in fashion. She now endorsing Roberto cavali, fashion, gym wear eyewear, underwear and it was shot by Lana Del ray’s boyfriend.

        She is also starring in ads for DKNY and she will star in new TV and print commercial for DKNY fragrance. Donna Karan said if Rita Ora cannot sell the products then she does not know who can. What a snub to Rihanna.

        She is already worth $ 3mill. THEY PREDICT her make $ 20 mill next year.

    • RICHIE_RICH July 31, 2014

      Is that you Sybil?

      • Rih Rox July 31, 2014

        Rihanna must have blocked you.

  15. LB July 31, 2014

    Doesn’t matter, the album will flop anyway. I mean consider Drunk in love, it was only “sort of” a hit because of VEVO views and not the song itself.

    Rita Ora will FLOP but will most likely sell more copies than whatever Cheryl Cole is calling her album in the UK.

    • Beysus July 31, 2014

      It’s called Only Human… And it’s Cheryl Fernandez-Versini-Tweedy-Cole now…

    • CherylSoldier July 31, 2014

      Did you hear that cheryl is co writing all of the songs on her new album, unlike your fav? Kii

  16. former rihanna stan July 31, 2014

    Rita ORA is clearly gonna blow up, but she will do it her own way. She has fashion on lock. She has the hollywood on lock. She gets paid to perform all over the world. She already get A list press and lives like superstar. She is popular and well liked and she has a lot of friends from david beckham to Donna Karan.

    SHE DATES RICH AND FAMOUS MEN, much better than Rihanna. ALL she needs now to tp lock down the music and SHE WILL WIPE RIHANNA out the game. Rihanna never had what she had on her its album ERA and RIH had hits. You are right, MOTS was sold more and PDR was smash. But…did rihanna have the paps chasing her at LAX? NOPE

    DID she have the fashion industry ? nope Was she dating rich and famous dudes? NOPE? Was she in movies? Nope.
    Was she smoking with at the vanity fair party? With Harvey Weinstein? as Stella Mccartney taking her dinner? Was she party8ing at kate moss private party in Ibiza? Did she have a famous supermodel BFF that gained press? No, she was basic on her 1st album, even though it was hit.


  17. former rihanna stan July 31, 2014

    Even though Rita ALBUM and ERA was ” flop ” she has managed to be worth $ 3. She already bought her parents a new home. She has treated herself to a new home worth over $ 5 mill, so I GUESS she is worth more than we think. Her sister is her co manager and she is already pushing new range rover. She has been flying around on private jets like nothing. Rihanna was not living lavish like this on her album 1.

    Rihana said she bought her 1st house in 2008 – album 3. Rita ORA already owns an expensive house in London on album 1, plus she bought her parents a home. Her sister has an apartment.

    • All im gonna say is August 1, 2014

      Rihanna was worth 11 million dollars back in 2008 before she went bankrupt in 2009 this was three years after her first album and from 2009 to now her net worth is an estimated 120 million dollars

  18. former rihanna stan July 31, 2014

    Rita ORA has such good energy . That is why the industry LOVE HER. Her BFF and stylist, Kyle Devolle is now has his own clothing line that has been featured in vogue.

    Her sister is her co manger and helped negotiate that mull million dollar addidas deal

    What has Rihanna’s brother achieved? What has Melissa Forde achieved in 7 years? Apart from attacking Kae and developing a drug habit?

  19. former rihanna stan July 31, 2014

    Rihanna is jealous of rita Ora’s life.

    Rita comes from loving educated 2 parent middle class home. Her parents are maried. Rihanna dad is drug addict with kids all over.

    Rita has lots and lots of friends, but she keeps her west london crew from back in the day. Who are rihanna friends? Rihanan was very jealous of the fun Cara delevigne and Riat were having, that is why she had to PAY cara to hang with her. Hw sad.

    She is jealous of Rita love life. Rita will never get beaten or cheated by her BF, in fact, she does the cheating. When Rita was dating Rob, Rihanna went go carting with him cos she was jealous.

    If u look on Rita’s IG, she has fun. There is no negativity. She has all these friends and her sister and they are enjoying life. Rihanan was all about dissing people ( kae ) and smoking weave or flaunting her flat b***.

    Rihanna is jealous that Rita is naturally prettier without makeup and has long blond hair, big boobs and round b***.

  20. Dev July 31, 2014

    I’m unsure to why she couldn’t imagine the man who signed her to be on her record. The song with Prince better slay. Melanie Fiona is no longer with Roc Nation and hasn’t been for a while from my understanding, I thought she went indie

    • Bullseye July 31, 2014

      Melanie fiona is managed by roc nation. She was dropped from her label last year, not her management. I heard that she wants to leave though.

  21. XXX July 31, 2014

    Dead at Sybil now dragging Rihanna for filth.

  22. XXX July 31, 2014

    And Jays feature do help a lot. So I won’t be surprised if she manages to somewhat chart because he is on it. Just ask Kanye, Justin, Beyonce and Rihanna.

  23. Lolz July 31, 2014

    Her career is built up around everything/everyone else but her own name. If its not a brand, its a link to another celeb. She is the EPITOME of smoke and mirrors. I don’t know why Jay an Beyonce like her so much. She must be nice person.

  24. eh July 31, 2014

    She wants to be Rihanna and Beyoncé so bad.

  25. former rihanna stan July 31, 2014

    The only reason why Rita started to ‘ copy ‘ Rihanna was because rihanna pulled stunt of Rita 1st, so Rita done it for payback.

    When Rita Ora first came out…..Rihanna all of a sudden started to copy her red lips, blonde hair , trap style and jordans. Rihanna was never dressing like that till Rita came out. So, of douse Rita Ora had to troll her back and mess with her head.

    Now, ever since Rita Ora has been hailed as fashion icon, Rihanna has fallen off. Rihanna now wears jordans, jeans and cap flipped to the back. She has run out ideas.

    • Bullseye July 31, 2014

      Are you that crazy stan that used to bash the hell out of Rita on here and write numerous paragraphs about her copying rihanna? LMAO..

  26. me July 31, 2014

    This former rihanna Stan is fake as hell, she thinks saying that will make her more credible and that’s laughable

  27. ENOUGH ONIKA (NEW & IMPROVED) July 31, 2014

    Whack a*s unoriginal c*nt dy*ke h***** outbreak looking b*tch. Yah I said it d*ke-bots, what the f*ck are the three of y’all gonna do about it??? It’ll flop Oral, Rihanna been there and done that (literally). You’re getting sloppy sloppy thirds…

  28. All im gonna say is August 1, 2014

    Rihanna was worth 11 million dollars back in 2008 before she went bankrupt in 2009 this was three years after her first album and from 2009 to now her net worth is an estimated 120 million dollars
