Rita Ora album playback ‘nerve-racking’
Rita Ora was reportedly extremely nervous about playing her debut album to Jay-Z and his wife Beyoncé Knowles.
The up-and-coming British artist is signed to the high-profile rapper’s label Roc Nation. Rita is currently opening for rock band Coldplay on their concert tour.
Rita recently played her debut album to Jay-Z and Beyoncé backstage at a Coldplay gig in Manchester, England.
The singer was said to be really worried about their opinions on her work, but was delighted to hear their input.
“Jay manages Rita with his Roc Nation team so they used the chance to have a listen,” a source told British newspaper The Sun. “The feedback was good but it was nerve-racking having Beyoncé there as well.”
Rita has spoken previously about how much she reveres the iconic musicians.
“I’m really happy and honoured to be around people like Jay and Beyoncé – they’re like my idols,” she gushed to British magazine more!
“I don’t think it gets any higher than that in my eyes.”
