She’s got a sterling pedigree, and the chops to back it up. Rita Ora is the kind of pop princess that prefers to dive into the pool without making a splash. This hopefully ensures that she’s not a flash in the pan but something worth keeping around.
She rose to prominence in February 2012 when she featured on DJ Fresh's single "Hot Right Now", which reached number one in the UK. Her debut studio album, Ora, released in August 2012, debuted at number one in the United Kingdom. The album contained the UK number-one singles "R.I.P." and "How We Do (Party)". Ora was the artist with the most number-one singles on the UK Singles Chart in 2012, with three consecutive singles reaching the top position.
On 26 May 2017, Ora released her first solo single in almost two years, titled "Your Song", which peaked at number seven in the UK. The track is expected to be the lead single from Ora's upcoming second studio album, after previous attempts at her second record were lost in her lawsuit against her former label, Roc Nation. Ora performed at BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend on 28 May 2017. The second single, "Anywhere", became her eleventh top ten song in the UK, peaking at number two.
In January 2018, Liam Payne and Ora released the song "For You", from the soundtrack of the film Fifty Shades Freed, in which Ora co-stars. In February, "For You" reached number eight in the UK, marking Ora's 12th top-ten song and equalling a 30-year-old record, jointly held by Shirley Bassey and Petula Clark, for most top-ten songs by a British female solo artist.
So today, with vacation dreams in full effect, I choose Rita Ora’s “Anywhere” as my, a million miles away, forever in your eyes, eternity in your arms, song for a, fly with me, silver wings, one more adventure checked off the list.
