Rita Ora Becomes Most Queried Female Artist On ‘Shazam’ Following Oscar Performance


Not even the force that is Lady GaGa could rain on Rita Ora‘s Oscar parade last night, watching the Brit-based singer fly the flag for female artists on Shazam hours after they performed at the ceremony.

Details on Ora’s latest win below...

Shazam uses a device’s built-in microphone to collect a small sample of an audio played into it. Then, it scans the sample across its database until it finds a match, going on to send the cut’s details to the device’s user.

Today, the service has revealed that Rita’s performance of the ‘Beyond the Lights’ cut ‘Grateful’ was the second most queried performance of the night, beating each and every single female artist to make it to #2 as Maroon 5’s presentation of ‘Lost Stars’ stood tall at #1.

Yet to see Ora in action?

Press play here.

    Lol sam am screaming dead! Yet nobody is talking about it except you hahahaha you get more pathetic daily

    • Toohotfortv February 23, 2015

      I mean, it would occur to me that that’d be because no one knows her.

    • Bad Gyal Rita February 23, 2015

      In the same way your mom doesn’t know who your dad is?

      • Toohotfortv February 23, 2015

        Oh chile please. My parents have been married for 30 years. I’m going to need you to stop deflecting your struggles on others. That was weak. Now, run along before I actually get irritated.

    • Lana Del Fan *I Can Hear The Sirens* February 23, 2015

      Wouldn’t this more so be proof that nobody knows her?

  2. HUR February 23, 2015

    Please let us know when she has a number one song or album!!

    thank you

    • maurice February 23, 2015

    • HUR February 23, 2015

      Please let us know when she has a number one song or album!!
      IN THE US!
      thank you

    • Diora Couture February 24, 2015

      Ummm…i think only in the U.S.A. do people think that having a #1 song or album makes a person an artist. Britney Spears has tons of #1’s but she ain’t better to me than, let’s say Dido, Adele, Alanis Morissette, Christina Aguilera, Cher, Tina Turner, MAdonna…etc.

      Having a #1 doesn’t mean you’re better than others, it just means more people bought your crap.

  3. maurice February 23, 2015

    ENOUGH of this non-selling broad.
    She still ain’t gonna make it in America.

    • Al February 23, 2015

      Kiiiii the lies in the site lease f** off TGJ please no one was checking for her why lise?!!!!! No BB hit with this! #BYE

  4. Geri February 23, 2015

    I can hear David counting the money from here.

  5. RihHearsal February 23, 2015

    80% came from Davids computer.

  6. Anita February 23, 2015

    David must of tampered with their database cos I don’t believe it.

  7. jelly February 23, 2015

    Rihanna didn’t get an invite?

  8. Rosy February 23, 2015

    Da fu kk is shazam???? Sam drags rihanna yet praises these flops with basic stats.


    • Navi Kiss Kiss February 23, 2015

      Why do you think it’s pro-Rita? David wrote it.

      • Rosy February 23, 2015

        lol I didnt realize david wrote this because sam usually post these pointless articles about Rita.

  9. Rihyeezy February 23, 2015

    But when you click on The article gags is the headline.

    • Rita Geaux Hard February 23, 2015

      Is somebody mad that Rihanna has never been asked to perform? I think you is.

      • Rihyeezy February 23, 2015

        We preform in STADIUMS a honey. Rita’s performance was a bathroom break.
        Ring when the b**** performs at the Grammys or some important platform.

      • Rita Geaux Hard February 23, 2015

        Erm what kind of flawed response.. The same stadiums that didn’t sell out until the day of the shows? Sweetie, it’s an HONOR to be asked to perform at the Oscars and Rihanna has never been called. Wai is that? Is it because they don’t want to be accused of encouraging the cultural appropriation of goats?

    • Rita Geaux Hard February 23, 2015

      Oh but nothing b****. Use the fingers you used to type in that link to clean that dirty p**** of yours. #Crabby

        said the many industry diccks that have been inside of rita many of the industry men who fucccked her don’t even know her name lmaoooo

  11. NENE February 23, 2015

        Hun Vanilla Ice and S****** both have a Diamond album or two………….right who are they? STFU SMH 😀

  13. rita ora can win a oscar February 23, 2015

    HA HA hater boom. RITA ora oscar song jumped from 1000 to 44 on tines because of her performance. LOL LOL at jealous, envious rihanna.

  14. Blue Ivy Rod (fourfivesecondsofSeethin) February 23, 2015

    But how many people bought her flop singles and albums? How come they Shazam her and not search on iTunes to BUY her music? They could at least stream her videos so she could out hart Pretty Hurts and I Bet ( I dan hide my Adams apple)

    • Blue Ivy Rod (fourfivesecondsofSeethin) February 23, 2015

      Chart* can*

    • rita ora can win a oscar February 23, 2015

      OK, she sold 6 million records.

      Her last song with iggy is platinum. IWNLD sold 1 million copies ww. THE oscar song is now 44 on iTunes, She has a debut album which sold 500k copies.

      People do buy her music.

    • rita ora can win a oscar February 23, 2015

      The song jumped from 1000 to 44 on iTunes. SO, now that American can HEAR her voice, she is selling. She is now in top 40 on iTunes.

    • Slay_Hive February 23, 2015

      Streaming doesn’t always help. That didn’t help What FLOP and Forgot to Remember You! 😉

      • Blue Ivy Rod (fourfivesecondsofSeethin) February 23, 2015

        It did help, remember Drunk in Love? Your fave last single to chart in the top 5? It got there by streams, not physical SALES. (I know you have a hard time telling the difference between “sales” and “sells”):-)

      • Slay_Hive February 23, 2015

        Streaming was one of the factors in DIL getting to #2 but it was also a combination of airplay, sales AND streaming. Came from a DOUBLE PLATINUM selling album and stayed in top ten for almost two months! It was one of the most popular songs of 2014. Let’s not go there!
        Just like a wack b**** to recycle a lame ass drag! What I don’t have a hard time doing is dragging you bum b******! CHOW!

      • Blue Ivy Rod (fourfivesecondsofSeethin) February 23, 2015

        But it came from a hype only album. It may have went double platinum but it still sold as much as UNA and drunk in love is the one and only single to crack the top 10. The rest struggle for the top spot on the hot bubbling under chartt. It’s not a drag it’s the truth. The only accomplishment BEYONCÉ had with this album is that her name alone cannot help sell her music. It was surprising even after all the hype she only managed to SELL a million more copies than her 4 flop disc.

      • Slay_Hive February 23, 2015

        Hype only? BEYONCE didn’t have a prior release date, no pre-singles, no interviews, 100 magazine covers, no twitter links, NOTHING! All she did was release her album, instead of a single. She decided to put focus on the entire body of work and not focus on chart positions. Everyone couldn’t have done what she did. Her name is BEYONCE. She is respected, talented and anything she’s a part of sells!
        DIL did good with minimal promo. The rest of her singles were not promoted AT ALL. She payed this album dust! The era pretty much carried itself. Something Rihanna could not afford to do!
        Her album is still DOUBLE PLATINUM. When was the last time Rihanna’s chart positions got her one of those?
        She won her 20th Grammy this era? When will Rihanna? Rihanna fans need to sit with the “hype” talk as much as ya’ll hype her #1 singles, she should have a few diamond albums, but she barely makes platinum. 4 did that EASILY! kii BYE!

  15. rita ora can win a oscar February 23, 2015

    27 year old over exposed rihanna better plan her post fame career, cos she is on her way to peaking. 45S is not even slaying the way we thought it would after 2 year absence.

    RITA IS ON THE RISE; I predicted that Rita will rise as rihanna begins to peak and so it begins…. WHEN AMERICAN WATCHES RITA SING LIKE m*********** on Empire it will be game set and match. It helps that Rita is more beautiful, stylish and sexier than rihanna and other singers

    THIS summer southpaw comes out and she plays a junkie with kids. IT IS ON………………

    • BeyRihLiyah February 23, 2015

      yawn were still waiting for rita whora to slay the u.s charts how many flop singles has she released? and what producer will she fuccck now so can complete that album that the general public will not buy 🙂

  16. rita ora can win a oscar February 23, 2015


    RITYA ORA is worth £ 30 mill due to her investments. SMARTEST SINGER IN THE WORLD.

  17. Paulo February 23, 2015

    OMG all the stretching and reaching on this “””article””” will rip my computer apart help

  18. #JACKIE (Cici da baddest) February 23, 2015

    Nobody gives a damn kii she’s irrelevant

    • BeyRihLiyah February 23, 2015

      but rita just graced a stage that ci-babymama will never ever grace 🙂

  19. Blue Ivy Rod (fourfivesecondsofSeethin) February 23, 2015

    It’s okay though! This is the last time she’ll “book” the Oscars. Her next stage performance is a duet with Super Head in their upcoming video!

    • Slay_Hive February 23, 2015

      When will be the “first” time Rihanna books the Oscars? SLUTanna would have a better chance at dueting with Super Head ( due to her reputation), before she graces the Oscar’s stage. #FactsOnly #TalentOnly

      • Blue Ivy Rod (fourfivesecondsofSeethin) February 23, 2015

        I think your fave has the d*** sucking talent hands down. Remember she likes to get nutted on in limos before gracing the stage of the grammies. That’s probably why she looked like a homeless prostitute from Houston begging for 5 dollars and a fix. Be gone with your multiple personality having ass and go buy 7/11 so she could at least op the top 15

      • Slay_Hive February 23, 2015

        B**** where is the shade in that? She likes to get nutted on by her HUSBAND, that she has been married to for 7 years! She is not f****** the entire industry like that lonely coco addicted thot you love! No one will marry the d*** breath b**** anytime soon!!
        I’m apart of the Hive. We buy albums and tour tickets. Not $1.29 singles, but carry on with your struggle “multiple personaltiy” shades WHILE trolling SLayriah #TheIrony! 😀

    • Blue Ivy Rod (fourfivesecondsofSeethin) February 23, 2015

      Remember when your fave was snubbed of her Oscar? Was she even nominated?

      • Slay_Hive February 23, 2015

        B**** has Rihanna even been a part of an Oscar nominated movie before? Bey has been nominated for Golden Globes TWICE. What has Rihanna won besides a razzie for her first acting cameo. kii #JOKE

      • Blue Ivy Rod (fourfivesecondsofSeethin) February 23, 2015

        It’s funny the last time she was nominated or even considered for movie roles was when daddy Knowles was in charge. #ThingsThatMakeYouGoHmm

      • Slay_Hive February 23, 2015

        Lol She was just considered for A Star is Born by Clint Eastwood but turned it down in 2011. Her dad was not her manager then. I fail to see the connection, just like ya’ll failed to provided receipts of him buying her grammys. That got shut down! Sit TF down if you can’t bring a receipt boo! 🙂

      • Blue Ivy Rod (fourfivesecondsofSeethin) February 23, 2015

        But wen she left her dads management that’s when she started to flop. She had no good deals, she has no nominations or movie roles, her music sales has declined and she cannot get a hit even when she strips and shakes her ass… Isn’t that enough proof?

      • Naomi February 24, 2015

        So whats H&M, Topshop (to name a few) and her music sales rose after 4. The only one on the decline is Rihanna.

  20. Honesty February 23, 2015

    Lol, really? We are celebrating Shazam now? The smoke and mirrors….the struggle……..

  21. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) February 23, 2015

    Spell sale. The “a” is not silent honey.

    • Slay_Hive February 23, 2015

      B**** shut the f*** up!! Refrigerator built b****!

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) February 23, 2015

        Look at you in your feelings…
        Did you get into that ESL course yet? It’s disturbing to know that an adult cannot pronounce a 4 letter word.

      • Slay_Hive February 23, 2015

        In my feelings? ROTFL!!!!! B**** are you serious. You are the one in here still talking about some s*** that happened two days ago though! It’s really not that serious. Cell/Sail/Sell/Sale are all pronounced closely alike! It’s not that far of a stretch sweetheart, but continue with your obsessive struggle!

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) February 23, 2015

        Yes babydoll! You’re always the first to @ me but when I clap back you’re weak ass wants to call me obsessive. Lmao ho sit your pick up truck built ass down somewhere. You’re not relevant enough for me to obsess over. I just find your struggles funny. That’s all <3

      • Slay_Hive February 23, 2015

        B**** when have I ever “@” you. I think you’re confusing a simple reply to “@ing” you. All I saw was a dumb comment about Bey bieng “Diamondless”. So I showed you what I thought about a diamond album via Vanilla Ice. The difference is I can reply DIRECTLY! Death @ you bringing up some s*** from two days ago and calling it a “clap back” LMAOO B**** that is what you would call a STRUGGLE. You are so weak! The only thing funny is how your ugly box shaped BeyHive obsessed ass constantly gets clocked. Ain’t that why ya mad?

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) February 23, 2015

        Oh lord, not these essays. It’s clear that you’re bothered. It was never my intention to hurt your feelings. However, facts will remain facts; you didn’t know the difference between the two words, you clearly aren’t 100% certain on what a homonym is, and you clearly don’t know how to pronounce a simple 4 letter word. Nonetheless, it seems as if your writing had improved slightly since I called you out. I’m always delighted to help a lesser. You’re welcome.

      • Slay_Hive February 23, 2015

        Hurt my feelings????!!!!!!!! LMAOOOOOOO B**** you are D E L U S I O N A L! That whole response was just delusional AF! Clinging to some mess that happened days ago just to have something to “drag” about. You even bought that s*** up yesterday too! KIIII Dumb retarded weak ass b**** and on that note BYE!!

  22. LB February 23, 2015

    I thought it was for her 90 second cameo in Fifty shades of grey. I am sorry but I thought with all the hyping the Rita bots or whatever were doing over that movie, she would have had a larger role, not 90 seconds LOL.

    A-n-y-way good for her I guess, her music is stale but she is a good singer, as are many artists out there. Let’s see if she is more than a socialite with a good voice.

    • Blue Ivy Rod (fourfivesecondsofSeethin) February 23, 2015

      She’s coming out with a role later down the year with Super head, apparently it will be her best performance yet!

      • DEL BEY February 23, 2015

        no, rita ora will never happen

  23. Blue Ivy Rod (fourfivesecondsofSeethin) February 23, 2015

    Dead at Prismatic replying to me about Beyonfe when she is a Katy Perry stan

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) February 23, 2015

      Prismatic is thirsty hun. She’s still upset at me clocking her uneducated ass

      • Blue Ivy Rod (fourfivesecondsofSeethin) February 23, 2015

        Instead of worrying about music SALES he should focus on getting his coins up so he could buy a dictionary

  24. Rosie February 23, 2015

    Do they not realize the self-drag in that headline. Shazam is an app that listens to a song and tells you what it is. They Shazamed it because they have no idea who she is, basically.

  25. Skyfall February 23, 2015

    Wow Slay_Hive has to be the most illiterate, dumbest troll on this site. Rita can have her little Oscar performance success as if that will give her more credibility. She is literally everywear but unknown for what truly matters… Her music. Rihanna is the best selling artist of the digital era 170 million records sold, 8 Grammies 13 #1s, 1m selling singles in the UK (Rita’s hometown) fashion icon while Rita is a fashion disaster… Literally a walking nightmare.
    Rihanna >> Rita

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) February 23, 2015

      Screams @ the first sentence! It must be hard to be educated when you’re an ashy bottom from one of the most ghetto cities in your country. Poor it

      • Skyfall February 23, 2015

        Lol dead

      • Diora Couture February 25, 2015

        what does “screaming at the first sentence” refer to?

    • DEL BEY February 23, 2015

      you told no lies.

    • Blue Ivy Rod (fourfivesecondsofSeethin) February 23, 2015

      He should go to the same place as Beyonce got hers

  26. Mark111 February 23, 2015

    Because no one knows her, lol. That’s sad.

  27. Skyfall February 23, 2015

    It doesn’t matter if they’re pronouced alike, you should know how to spell them accordingly.

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) February 23, 2015

      She went from saying they are pronounced “exactly alike” to “closely alike”. It’s a Beyonce fan anyway…. She told them that they don’t need a degree if they’re schoolin’ life. I’m sure she has the closeted gays schoolin’ her used hole on some corner.

  28. Slay_Hive February 23, 2015

    Lmao. I am obviously FAR from illiterate, but if that’s what you “think” than so be it. I just find it pathetic that you would waste your time arguing with someone so “dumb” and “illiterate” AND let them constantly put you in your place. kii Says a lot about your “education”! I always get the last laugh while you h*** are seething! 😀

    Lesson 1


    Do you know the difference between “there”, “their” and “they’re”?

    Lesson 2 will be harder if you solve lesson 1 right then we will discuss the difference between “fare” and “fair”
