British singer, songwriter and actress Rita Ora is certainly becoming a household name, what with her serving as the host of the 2017 MTV Europe Music Awards. Since I am pretty sure that they don’t just hand out that position on the street, it can be safe to say that Ora has sure come a long way in the music industry.
Rita Ora’s Net Worth as of 2018: estimated $19 million
According to The Squander, it is estimated that Ora is worth $19 million, making that guess from looking at her assets, salary and estimates. Let’s take a look at how Ora made her fortune in today’s market.
The Early Years
Although born in Kosovo to Albanian parents, her family moved to London when she had been a year old, the country where she grew up. Ora began a career in music with open mic sessions around London, even at a pub her father owned.
It was in 2007 when Ora had her big break in the music industry with an appearance on Craig David’s track, “Awkward.” Proving ambitious, she auditioned for the Eurovision Song Contest in 2009 through a BBC One program and qualified, although she later withdrew. At the start of a new decade, she joined forces with an American label, Roc Nation, making cameos in various music videos.
Originally releasing her music through YouTube, she eventually caught the attention of DJ Fresh, who hired her for the song, “Hot Right Now.” After serving as an opening act for Drake, she released a debut album, Ora. Eventually, she had hits with singles like “R.I.P” and “How We Do (Party).”
In 2014, she had popularity with the song “I Will Never Let You Down” and appeared in the Iggy Azalea song, “Black Widow.” In 2016, she later signed on to Atlantic Records, eventually releasing the single “Your Song.” She also performed in a concert at the Basilica of St. Paul Outside the Walls, in Rome, at the vigil for Mother Teresa, among other Albanian artists. In addition, she gained notice as the host of the 2017 MTV Europe Music Awards.
In Hong Kong before hitting the stage for a performance, Rita Ora stripped down to her sparkly underwear and danced in a hotel room.
