Rita Ora Explains Significance Behind Debut Album Title
The 'R.I.P.' star Rita Ora has revealed the reason she named her debut album 'ORA'. The west London songstress told GQ magazine that the title of her album is not only a reference to her surname, but it also reflects the period she took to finish her album after signing with Jay-Z's Roc Nation three years ago…
"It's my name, but also ‘ora’ in my language means ‘time’ and it took me so long to do this album; like three years," she confessed.
The Roc Nation singer also spoke of what a "great boss" Jay-Z is, acting as a significant factor in her decision to take her time with her debut record.
"Jay-Z taught me a lot about patience as an artist. I was itching. He's a great mentor, a great boss and so is his wife," she added.
"There's not a lot of people on Roc Nation so the few that are genuinely get time spent on their project. It's like a family, well especially now with Blue Ivy - although she just chills, eats, sleeps, wakes up, eats, sleeps."
