Rita Ora Doesn’t Mind Rihanna Comparison

Rita Ora‘s foreign accent, tomboy attitude and falsetto voice has critics already comparing her to fellow pop siren Rihanna. Granted, Jay-Z did guide Rihanna’s career when he was president at Def Jam and now he’s mentoring Ora at Roc Nation, so comparisons are going to be inevitable.

While most artists hate to be analogized to someone else, the Kosovo-born artist takes the Rihanna comparisons all in stride. “I take it as a compliment, the comparison is a great one,” she tells MTV News. “It’s not like it’s someone I’m not a fan of, so I’m happy to be compared to someone like that.”

Ora says she’s not looking to overthrow Rihanna’s pop reign, in fact, she would love to collaborate with the ‘Where Have You Been‘ singer. “Doing a feature with her would be so cool,” she says.

Ora is so enthusiastic about the idea of working with Rihanna that she already has a video treatment in mind. “The video would be kinda hot,” she explains. “I’d be, like, chasing Rihanna the whole time. I’d be like come on, man, give me a shot, man! Let me just take you out!’ After a couple of chuckles, she states, “No, I’m joking; I’m very, very much straight.”

A collaboration with Rihanna sounds like a plan to us. And who knows, maybe afterwards, Ri-Ri and Ora can go to a strip club together and make it rain. We are kidding, of course.

Still, it’s good to know that Ora sees Rihanna as her equal and not her competition. Let’s hope a duet between these two pop stars will happen sooner than later.
