Rita Ora was born to Albanian parents Vera and Besnick. Her mother is a psychiatrist and father a pub owner who studied economics. They left Yugoslavia when Rita was just a baby in 1991 to settle in London, England.
Rita began to sing at an early age and she rose to prominence after being featured on DJ Fresh’s single “Hot Right Now” in 2012 which went to number 1 in the UK. She released her debut album Ora also in 2012 with the hit single “R.I.P.” and ” How We Do (Party)”. Rita had the most number-one singles in the UK in 2012 with 3 singles.
Rita released her second album in 2018 titled “Phoenix” and had 3 top ten singles from it named “Anywhere”, ” Your Song” and “Let you love me”. She is the first female solo in the UK to have 13 top 10 singles.
As far as listeners and followers she has around 4 million subscribers on YouTube and 20 million listeners on Spotify. With only 2 albums so far we hope to hear more from Rita in the coming year’s. I’m sure she’ll have a lot more number-one singles ahead of her.
