Jay-Z Reveals Why He Signed Rita Ora
UK singer Rita Ora caught Jay-Z's attention a little over a year ago, and after experiencing her infectious personality and ambition, Jay had to have her on Roc Nation.
In an interview with VEVO LIFT, Jay-Z spoke highly of the "R.I.P." songstress.
"You can see the potential. When she enters a room it changes and that presence you can't duplicate that, especially at a young age. It was just infectious to me, like 'man she loves this' she's driven in that way. "
The "How We Do" singer has been compared to Rihanna for her bubbly personality and style choices, but no worries, Roc Nation Rita is happy to be compared to RiRi.
She's also been dating Kim Kardashian's little brother Rob Kardashian, and the two seem to be in a whirlwind romance. From matching Jordans to sweet Twitter messages, Rita and Rob may be Hollywood's next hot couple.
Rita Ora is expected to release her debut album later on this year or early 2013.
