Rita Ora is the latest born from Jay-Z's Roc Nation's scouting and she believed that she would be the next great star under their wings. Rita Sahatciu Ora was originally born in Pristina, SFR Yugoslavia (now Kosovo) in November 1990 and moved to London with her parents and sister in the same year. She grew up in West London and graduated from Sylvia Young Theatre School and then St Charles Catholic Sixth Form College.

Ora began singing at the age of 14 and kicked off her career by appearing in a British film called "Spivs". Later in 2007, the 16-year-old was featured Craig David's track "Awkward", a gig that she repeated the next year in David's "Where's Your Love".
