Born in Kosovo but raised in London, Rita Ora began singing at age six, singing poems as a way to express herself. Breaking into the industry after Jay-Z signed her to his Roc Nation label, Ora -- who cites Gwen Stefani and Beyonce as musical influences -- released her debut album, Ora, in 2012. The album featured three No. 1 singles: "Hot Right Now," "How We Do (Party)" and "R.I.P."
Ora collaborated with will.i.am, Drake, The-Dream and Kanye West on her debut album, which took two years to complete.
Also a model, the blonde beauty was tapped to become the new face of Madonna's clothing line, Material Girl, in July 2013.
Though it was long rumored Ora dated Rob Kardashian, Ora told Glamor U.K. that the duo were "close for a while," but decided it best to just remain friendly due to their hectic schedules. At the time, Kardashian went on a Twitter rant about an un-named ex -- rumored to be Ora -- he claimed had been unfaithful to him and cheated on him with "nearly 20 dudes."
