Rita Ora Had ‘Six Failed Attempts’ At Being A Star
Rita Ora has admitted that there were many times in her past where she thought she was about to become famous, but it didn’t work out. So when the Roc Nation singer got her big break on DJ Fresh’s track ‘Hot Right Now’, she ‘didn’t expect it’ at all. Rita explained ahead of her gig for Sony Xperia Access: "There were a lot of times where I thought this was going to be it and then it doesn't happen…
"It happened to me about six times, so when this actually finally happened, I really didn't expect it to at all."
She went on to say of the follow up to her debut LP: "I can't believe I'm doing my second album already. To me it's like, 'Finally, thank you for just giving me the chance'. I'm actually going to sing about things that are happening to me now. When I was 18, I was performing at 21, so to me it was two-year-old music.
"What's exciting about this record is that I've just felt like I've found the confidence to be honest."
