Jay-Z + Beyonce Talk Rita Ora Tracks on New Album
Rita Ora has just released her debut album ‘ORA’ in the U.K. Although her U.S. fans will have to wait a little while to hear it, the singer’s LP is getting rave reviews from two of her biggest supporters — Jay-Z and Beyonce.
In an interview with VEVO Lift, Ora’s boss, Jay-Z, gushes about her chart-topping hit ‘R.I.P.’ (featuring Tinie Tempah). “‘R.I.P.’ brought her roots and where she’s from into dubstep, but it was so modern,” he said. “It was a nice follow-up for her, it sounded like a nice introduction, ‘R.I.P.’ to the girl you used to see, her days are over‘ — it just sounds like a new relationship and she was having this new relationship with the world. She was being introduced to the world musically.”
Meanwhile, Beyonce went on her Tumblr blog to congratulate Ora on her new album and highlighted one of the songs on the LP called ‘Shine Ya Light.’ She wrote to her fans, “I’ve had ‘Shine Ya Light’ by Rita Ora on repeat — no doubt you will too. She’s also up for the ‘Women Who Rock’ issue of Rolling Stone! Congrats on your album Re-ah! Love, Beyonce.”
This is a good look for the British songbird whose first album ‘ORA’ is on the fast track to becoming the No. 1 album in the U.K., according to Official Charts Company. Unfortunately, there’s still no official word on when Ora will drop her album in the United States.
