Recent interviews with Rita Ora make mention of the British pop star’s “American Takeover” in the lead-up to the release of her second album. The drive is clearly there and when allied with Rita’s millions of followers, the takeover seems not so much American as it does global. Rita’s North American front is in rude health judging by her August 2014 cover of Flare. “I cannot wait to go on tour and dress up in costumes and have everybody singing along,” explained Rita speaking to Flare. “This song, this album…is about being in love and having the time of your life.” Rita is clearly having the time of her life, what with the forthcoming album release and tour as well as collaborations with adidas and Rimmel. The world is Rita’s and America is but her latest front.
