Rita Ora is pretty much a ‘big deal‘ in the UK and after being on top there for a while she bumps gums on her upcoming United States release.
The last twelve months have seen the Londoner’s “brand” established on a global scale, thanks to a slew of promotional appearances, radio runs, and the widespread reach of the “net.”
Ora who is signed to Jay Z’s Roc Nation is looking to use that status to leap into worldwide success by breaking the notoriously tough American market.
Originally slated to release her ‘ORA’ album with bonus tracks last year, that idea has since been scrapped in favor of an entirely new LP.
In a recent interview with MTV Rita said:
“2013 is really important for me because it’s gonna to be the first time the U.S. hears my official album and I wanted to put a few extra tracks on there and make it really special. So I’m basically giving you guys a whole new album of new material. So to the world it’ll be like a second album, but to you guys it’ll be like a first album.
(Regarding collaborations) Yes, there is. There’s a few surprises. I don’t want to give them away, but it’s definitely in the Roc family
(Overall) 2013′s got a lot of things I want to achieve. There’s a lot of kind of plans and ideas that are gonna come out in 2013.”
