Rita Ora has been dealing with Rihanna comparisons for over a year now, even worse one of Rita’s biggest singles thus far “R.I.P“ which was written by Drake was originally meant for Rihanna. In addition the song was released amongst rumors that Jay-Z was mad at Rihanna for releasing the ‘Birthday Cake’ remix with Chris Brown.
So there’s already a little drama there.
It now appears the Roc Nation up-and-coming star wants no parts of being likened to Roc Nation’s established superstar.
Ora had previously stated that she feel honored to be compared Rihanna, but recently Rita seems to want to distance herself from the Barbadian singer.
“Rihanna is cool and fun but we couldn’t be more different,” Ora told the Daily Mail.
“She is from Barbados and I am from Kosovo,” she added. “And that should say it all really.”
Apart from the being on the same label and having a Drizzy written song in common, the comparison is very much unfounded. Musically and aesthetically, they’re nothing alike.
Lets see if this leads to some sort of rivalry.
