Rita Ora Models A Bikini, Readies New Single (According To Her Sister)
It’s been a wild couple of weeks for Rita Ora. The British pop star inked a new deal with Atlantic Records, was hospitalized for exhaustion and reportedly signed on to replace Tyra Banks on the reboot of America’s Next Top Model. The 25-year-old also found the time to model a bikini for TEZENiS and is putting the finishing touches on her new single — at least according to her sister, Elena Ora. Apparently, the track will arrive “in a few weeks.”
After bursting on the scene in 2012 with a string of UK number 1 singles and a Jay Z co-sign, Rita was pegged by many as The Next Big Thing. A run of bad luck (label drama, online backlash and a vengeful Calvin Harris) has dampened the buzz somewhat, but it will be interesting to see what she can accomplish with a label that will actually release her album in the US and an even higher profile thanks to her upcoming TV gig.
