Rita Ora was recently spotted heading to DSTRKT nightclub in London looking sexy and sassy.
The Roc Nation beauty looked gorgeous in a hot red dress, which brought out her beautiful blonde locks.
Rita has been everywhere lately getting ready for the release of her debut album coming out later this year, and the anticipation increases more each day.
Rita recently sat down with CBS to talk about her album and the process she went through to write it.
Apparently Jay-Z told her to take some time off to do things that would help inspire her to get to writing.
I got signed to Roc Nation when 18. I’m 21 now so it took me, yeah, two years to literally write, scrap things, write again, scrap things. I just didn’t know what I wanted to talk about.
I didn’t know what I wanted to speak about. I didn’t have anything I felt was important enough for people to hear. You can imagine, I was frustrated. I’d go in and out of the studio. But I was lucky to have even two years to do an album.
She talks about what happened as soon as she found some inspiration:
I would just write, write, write, write, write and sometimes take a week break. I would never force it. Almost an epiphany. It was literally simple things. Going out with your friends, speaking with your family. Being inspired by things you wouldn’t usually expect to happen you know? Dramas going on in your family, boy drama, anything. Art, other music. I would just listen to a lot of music.
She also talked about how Jay-Z opened up her eyes to new music in history:
…I never knew anything about the ’60s, ’50s, I never even knew about it. I did my research and I kind of got lost in the world. It’s so interesting to see how music evolved. He [Jay-Z] just opened my eyes. Even to hip hop artists that I never…you know, like old school hip hop artists.
Apparently Roc Nation has also changed her view on music:
Anything people want to say to me about music I’m open to listen to because you just never know what’s going to hit you.
It looks like this album is coming straight from Rita’s heart!
We can’t wait for the blonde bombshell to debut album and to see where that inspiration came from.
