Rita Ora’s Debut ‘ORA’ Due in September

Rita Ora

Rita Ora has been waiting three years to release her album, but she’s finally settled on a date. While she was originally eyeing a summer release, the 21-year-old singer is now looking to drop her debut ORA in September.

“This album is finally ready to come out around September time,” the Roc Nation signee said during her appearance on VH1’s “Big Morning Buzz.”

The title represents more than just her last name. “Ora is my surname, but it also means time in my country, Kosovo, and it definitely took me a long time to get this album—three years to be exact,” she told Wild 94.9.

She’ll have more time to focus on the project now that she has finished touring with Coldplay through Europe. “To be there, I was really nervous ’cause I haven’t even done intimate gigs. I went straight to doing stadiums,” she said. “I can either melt into a blob on stage or I can just own it. So we did and I actually got the best response ever.”

The album will include the Drake-penned single “R.I.P.,” “How We Do (Party),” “Roc the Life,” “Shine Ya Light,” and a “slow, sensitive” track titled “Unfair.”

You can leave a response, or trackback from your own site.

    The jealousy on this site is unreal. Seems to me people were saying the same things about Rihanna that they’re saying about Rita now. Same bunch of hypocrites who said J. Cole wouldn’t sell 50K the first week and he sold 250K! So, we’ll see how well her debut album does. I, for one, like her and her music is very unique. A lot of people will be surprised.

    @1-800-SlapThatDELUSION, That is so mean, my cousin is an albino and I think she is beautiful, not only does she have 2 beautiful children, but she is very successful! Give Rita a chance before you start hating on her.

    She’s gonna flop soo hard. She is nothing special and she didn’t land a hit like Riri did back in 2005. Just a copy.

    @mumi, She’s number one on the charts in the UK, how did she flop again?

    [Reply]

    Antonio Reply:

    @mumi, Her song How We Do is climbing the Hot 100 so its a hit in the making and R.I.P. was #1 in UK and she already had a #1 with Hot Right Now in the UK. Not a flop at all.

    I definitely believe she will do well in the UK and overseas… i just dont know about in the US… she is gaining a pretty big buzz over here but we’ll just have to wait n see.. cuz no one can really predict that. These months leading up to her album is crucial to her success in the US, her team has to be on it!!

    She needs a hot urban single for USA definetly.

    How we do is a feel good single, but her team should release something hotter for the next single

    She will be fine on Uk, without doubt. But lets hope the label choose the right next single

    [Reply]

    Ice Reply:

    @Warren, Yes, I love her, but an Urban single would be nice. Pop tracks are so generic lately.

    Been waiting for this album forever. I believe she’s gonna release Rock the life after Party and BS. P & B is gonna be a top 20 song, and she has crazy buzz.

  10. Yeah

    nothing special, she wont be around in a couple years

    When people say shes gonna flop they obviously mean everywhere other than the UK. Sure, she’s had a few hits there but she’s basically no one in the US. That crappy How We Do song is flopping in the US and even if that becomes a moderate hit its not the type of song that would push an album.

    i still dont get what her sound is though

    [Reply]

  13. maya

    She needs a specific sound so when people hear it they can say “that sounds like a Rita track” but this is a DEBUT so she still has a lot of time to come up.

    Looking forward to Shine Your Light :)

    SHOTS FIRED Reply:

    @rihanna, They are nothing but pressed bandwagon Navi fans. Those are the worst Navi fans; they was riding hard against Riri, but she started dropping hits, so now they overcompensate. True Navi would never hate on a new artist and say they would do bad because it happened to us. Same sh*t people saying about Rita, they said about Rihanna. Remember what God has planned for you, no man can stop.

    Rita is that chick. Period!!!! She already blowing up in the US haters. And that Nicki/Rihanna fan is that female from twitter who always throwing shade at other female artists. She’s pathetic and needs to ignore what she says she doesnt like.
    Love how the haters are trying to raise the bar for Rita. All they favs took years to blow, but they trying to say Rita gotta blow in the US in the six months she been doing music. Suprise haters, she’s doing it. :-D

    People need to stop with the Rihanna comparisons. Rita has talent whereas Rihanna does not.
