Rita Ora kicked off her release week with an early morning appearance on “BBC Breakfast.” Running on little sleep after a busy weekend, the 21-year-old Roc Nation signee spoke about her debut album ORA, growing up in Kosovo, her parents’ sacrifices, and having Jay-Z as her mentor.
“He’s incredible at what he does,” said Rita. “I’m just really happy to be under the belt of such a legend in our generation. Not only that, we’ve got something in common. We both love music. It’s cool to have a boss that loves the same thing you love. I know that creatively he’ll always understand me.”
She also performed an acoustic version of her latest U.K. chart-topper “How We Do (Party).”
