Rita Ora & The Cast Of ‘Empire’ Top iTunes Chart With Soundtrack Album

Published: Thursday 12th Mar 2015 by David

‘The Voice’ isn’t the only TV series benefitting from Rita Ora‘s bourgeoning star power.

For, as its ratings continue to cast a Hip-Hop tinted shadow over rival shows, ‘Empire’s soundtrack has shot to #1 on iTunes USA with a little help from a cut recorded by Ora for the release.

Good news below..

The album features original songs written for the dramatic TV series  and touched down on the tally on March 1oth.

Now, with help from the fan favourite ‘Drip Drop‘ and Rita‘s ‘NY Raining’, the set sits atop iTunes USA, claiming the #1 spot as the Pop singer finishes work on her US debut LP.


Eagle-eyed fans would have noticed that this isn’t the only Rita-related project in the Top Ten.

For, should one pan down to #6 they’d find the ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ soundtrack, released to support the movie of the same name in which the ‘Black Widow‘ singer portrays Mia Grey.

    Why did you have to bring Rita up, as if she had anything to do with the shows success or it’s music success?

    • Jenna March 12, 2015

      She’s slaying me!

      • Skyfall March 12, 2015

        me too.

    • Edna March 12, 2015

      I’m sorry… I don’t know if that Rita comment is sarcasm or not. If not, yall need to stop playing because don’t know nobody even know her.

    • Bey Bey Slay March 12, 2015

      Is Rita on the soundtrack or not. If she is then she helped to sell it. Simples.

    • AnnaMaeKeatingsNewWig March 12, 2015

      SCREAMS! No time was wasted and you got right to it!

  2. Rita Geaux Hard March 12, 2015

  3. Bad Gyal Rita March 12, 2015

    Somebody hold me.

  4. Bad Gyal Rita March 12, 2015

    Mutha!!!!!!! You better report dem facts King David.

  5. blue March 12, 2015

    this site truly hates rita

    • Bad Gyal Rita March 12, 2015

      Or nah.

  6. Molly March 12, 2015

    Im so mad that Rita is now apart of the show smh….

    • Janelle Monslae March 12, 2015

      Maybe Ciara should join The Real Babymamas of Atlanta. She can be the queen of the show.

  7. Blue Ivy Rod (fourfivesecondsofSeethin) March 12, 2015

    No one knew her basic ass was on the soundtrack and the had great music on there so it was a big stretch that the soundtrack will sell slit

    • Janelle Monslae March 12, 2015

      Nobody knows who she is? Lee Daniels is nobody?

      • 2 For Tinashe March 12, 2015

        exactly!! king David is never wrong about these things.

  8. Rihyeezy March 12, 2015

    She been in the game for like 3-4 years and has YET to release ha debut album in the US.

    • Blue Ivy Rod (fourfivesecondsofSeethin) March 12, 2015

      She just hasn’t sucked the right d*** yet

  9. Molly March 12, 2015

    The struggle for whora to make it big in America is real. Where’s Ritas American album? This b**** Rita always has to cling to someone else to seem relevant.

  10. Blue Ivy Rod (fourfivesecondsofSeethin) March 12, 2015

    The spam bots are here to spread their delusion. Rita is a flop

  11. @rihicon March 12, 2015

    let’s not act like Rita is a major reason for the sales…

    • gina March 12, 2015

      Let’s not act like people know who she is.

  12. gina March 12, 2015

    The reach is not a game. This rita whatever the hell her name is has NOTHING to do with the soundtrack hitting #1. Nobody even knows who she is.

  13. whut March 12, 2015

    Never heard of this girl. So how exactly is she responsible for a soundtrack that was already selling well?

  14. SMH March 12, 2015

    Lol Jay Z must have thrown a few coins at this site. The Empire soundtrack is #1 because of last night’s episode, not because of some bargain basement version of rihanna whom nobody even knows is on the soundtrack.

  15. LOL March 12, 2015


  16. blue March 12, 2015


  17. Jamie March 12, 2015

    Oral ain’t do shyt but get her on the show so stop trying. I bet her song will be the least purchased.

    • Bey Bey Slay March 12, 2015

      But she’s on the album so she does.

  18. La Perra March 12, 2015

    This is funny… Here we go with this sh*t again.
    Rita has absolutely nothing to do with this charting.

    • Bad Gyal Rita March 12, 2015

      Like your dad has absolutely nothing to do with your life.

  19. FutureCIARA March 12, 2015

    This Rita Oral Toothepaste child is a non-factor….. Im astonished at the fact that she keeps popping up in everything without a US album or anything….

    Somebody really must enjoy her head, Because she is literally getting these gigs handed to her.

    • Bey Bey Slay March 12, 2015

      Why haven’t they called Ciara?

      • 2 For Tinashe March 12, 2015

        That’s what I wanna know.

      • Brian310 March 12, 2015

        I’m sure they will call Ciara for the next season but when is Rita gonna get a solo top 20 hit on itunes?

  20. I’m Booked March 12, 2015

    TGJ Your Arms Have Too Be Tired & Sore After All This Reaching Yall Be Doing!! The Album Would Still Be Number One Without Rita!!

    • Bad Gyal Rita March 12, 2015

      Sorer than your lips on a Friday night?

      • I’m Booked March 12, 2015

        You Are Not Hired Hun… Kiiiiii

      • I’m Booked March 12, 2015

      • TheElusiveLamb March 12, 2015

        She performed the other day and it’s so amazing.

  22. Mark111 March 12, 2015

    Rita jacking Rihanna’s style again, smh. This girl is so sad. How her team got her doing everything with no album to promote? lol

  23. AnnaMaeKeatingsNewWig March 12, 2015

    LOL nah the lie detector tests determine that is a LIE! I’m from London and I can tell you right now nobody is checking for her so it makes no difference over here. Next thing TGJ will run an article on Fifty Shade of Grey claiming Whora helped to sell the movie and its soundtrack, even tho she had like 5 lines LOL!

    • rihanna used up w**** March 12, 2015

      I will never let you down which came out last April is Rita’s biggest selling single with over half a million sold. The voice is still getting great ratings and Rita get praise. She is currently on the cover of UK instyle and her Rimmel and Addias line are selling well in the UK.

      You are a liar and not from London.

      • AnnaMaeKeatingsNewWig March 13, 2015

        SCREAMING how the fuq can you tell me where I’m from. ‘rita ora can win a oscar’ I recognise your psychotic ass, don’t change your username and expect me not to drag you like I have on so many occasions.
        1)The Voice is the only thing Rita is doing on TV right now in the UK, and all she does is wear crazy outfits and act retarded to get attention from the audience
        2) Why is rita involved in so many things besides music? She is just as annoying as Myleene Klass who is famous for nothing and still get’s called a musician – If you’re really from the UK you’ll know who that is
        3) Her adidas line is only worn prepubescent yobs and chavs, and she is not helping DKNY in sales as much as Cara Delevigne is
        4)She isn’t releasing any relevant music right now and that’s all that matters.

  24. #NoStan March 12, 2015

    Is she even a singer anymore? She’s been absolutely everywhere for the past year yet she’s released nothing since that random single a year ago. Is she waiting for Rihanna to finish R8 so she can have whatever is left or something?

    This girl is gonna be overexposed before she even releases another song. She must think being everywhere will give her some sort of US profile but I don’t think anybody is even checking for her…

    • rihanna used up w**** March 12, 2015

      She is a singer. She has sold 7.1 million records without a WW album. She has good looks and connections so she gets deals more than other girls. She is now the face Of Cola.

  25. rihanna used up w**** March 12, 2015


    Rita has just filmed the video for this song. She is now the face of Cola

  26. rihanna used up w**** March 12, 2015

    Rihanna new comeback single flopped. It look more time to sell a million than Appaluse. The grammy’s; the radio deal having paul mccartney; the Super Bowl concert……SHE IS DONE! EVEN in the UK, the song did not smash. She has been using LEO for press and constantly been in the public eye.
