Rita Ora has said that she sees Beyonce as her big sister, mainly because she supports her very much and gives her strong advice on how to deal with the pressure of being in the music industry, staying away from the media and what it takes to be a successful musician.Well, it seems that Rita has already achieved the ‘successful’ task as she just received her no.1 in the UK with ‘How We Do’, selling 100,000 copies in its first week of sales.
Ora who is signed to Jay-Z’s label RocNation explained her relationship with the superstar: “Jay-Z made me feel really relaxed but at the same time, he made me realize I had loads of work to do,” Ora told Grazia. “He’s been doing this for years and I’ve just started. I just hope my career can be as successful as his. He’s my musical idol. Beyoncé told me, ‘Be yourself because we like being around you’. I guess I’m like the little sister.”
Beyonce likes being around Rita? Aww, how cute! Note, Ora is dropping her debut album in the UK on Sunday and it is expected to sell up to 180,000 copies in its first week, making it one of the biggest sales in the albums chart for a female newcomer. It’s fair to say that Jay knows talent as soon as he sees them.
