Best known as an international critically acclaimed singer-songwriter with over 10 billion streams, Rita Ora currently holds four #1 UK singles and has held the record for the most Top 10 singles for a British female artist in UK history with a total of 13.
Her most recent album, You & I, was the highest new entry from a female act in the UK Official Albums Chart, debuting at #6, and landed the coveted #1 spot on the UK Official Independent Albums Chart. It features the #1 US Dance Radio hit “Praising You,” a rework of Fatboy Slim's ‘90s chart-topping Grammy-nominated track and “You Only Love Me,” lauded by Billboard as “a finely crafted ode to complicated romance”.
As a multi-talented industry leader across TV and culture, Rita is taking her brand partnerships to new sectors. Since 2013, she has been a proud UNICEF UK ambassador with a passion to drive a positive change for children and refugees around the world.
Her film and television credits include the Fifty Shades of Grey franchise, Wonderwell, POKÉMON Detective Pikachu, Twist, The Masked Singer UK, The Voice Australia, The X-Factor UK, and the Netflix series Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight. Rita will soon star opposite Jamie Foxx and Robert De Niro in the upcoming film Tin Soldier and will join Brandy in the Descendants sequel The Rise of Red on Disney+. Now Rita is taking her own brand to new heights in the fashion industry, by launching a new multi-season partnership with Primark.
Growing up in Ladbroke Grove in London, Rita would always find herself in the Hammersmith Primark store after school or on the weekends shopping the latest fashion and trends. Primark was where Rita first fell in love with fashion which has grown throughout her career, evolving into a mix of high street and designer, pre-loved and new.
Rita has always admired Primark’s brand promise of making fashion affordable for everyone and felt passionately about bringing her vision for a fashion range to life in our stores. To find out more of her involvement in her collection, this can be read in our behind the scenes web article.
