Rita Ora net worth is surely something that we all want to know. The singer became famous when she was pretty young, and since that moment she has been building her career as a strong and independent woman.

Fans and followers always tend to ask themselves about their favourite stars’ net worth. For example, how many times have you wondered how much is Danny Dyer’s worth? We have investigated into Rita’s financial situation…

Who Is Rita?

Before we learn more about Rita Ora net worth, we should review the pop star’s life and latest success.

Her real name is Rita Sahatçiu Ora, due to her Albanian origins. She was born on 26th November 1990, in Kosovo, meaning she is now 29 years old. She moved to England in 1991 with her dad, and she grew up in West London, in Notting Hill. She revealed that she changed her name when she became famous because “Ora” was easier to pronounce for her fans.

She attended Sylvia Young Theatre School, among with many other major and minor stars, such as Amy Winehouse and Gemma Collins. The school is one of the most expensive in the UK but, considering Rita Ora’s net worth, we can say that it has been a good investment!

Rita’s Career Beginnings

She is an eclectic artist. In fact, she works as a songwriter, singer, actress and she is also a television personality. She began her career as a performer with open mic sessions in her father’s pub. She also eventually auditioned for “Eurovision: Your Country Needs You” on BBC One in 2008, but she withdrew her participation since she didn’t feel ready.

Thanks to her manager, Sarah Stennet, she signed a recording deal and a publishing deal with Roc Nation in 2008. After this, she made a cameo appearance in Jay Z’s video for the single “Young Forever” (2009) and Drake’s video for “Over” (2010)

Rita rose to prominence a few years ago, in 2012, when she featured on DJ Fresh’s famous single “Hot Right Now”. DJ Fresh fell in love with Rita’s talent after watching one of her videos on YouTube.

Since then, she has had a huge commercial success, winning a total for 18 industry awards and being nominated for a further 72. Rita Ora net worth may be high, but it is also true that she is unstoppable and she is focusing on her career.

What Do We Know About Rita Ora Net Worth and Career?

Ora’s first UK single from her debut album was “R.I.P.”, featuring Tinie Tempah. After the release in May 2012, the song debuted at the top of the UK Singles Chart, becoming her first solo UK number one. A few months later, in August, she released the single “How We Do (Party)”, which again reached number one in the UK and in Ireland.

Rita received a nomination for Best New Artist, Push Artist and Best UK/Ireland Act at the 2012 MTV Europe Music Awards. Since the beginning of her music career, she has supported many other artists, such as Coldplay and Usher.

So far, she has been nominated for three awards at the 2013 Brit Awards.

Fifty Shades of Rita

Rita Ora net worth surely went up when Fifty Shades Freed’s director casted her as Mia Grey, the young sister of the protagonist. The drama was part of the fortunate series Fifty Shades of Grey. The role was particularly important for her personal growth, since she had to speak to different languages (French and American accent).

On the other hand, Rita only had four lines, which were no more than 90 seconds on screen time. Although her fans were disappointed, the star kept working with the cast and she also wrote a song for the Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack.

Rita’s Career On Television

Afterwards, Rita featured in other movies and even made a brief appearance in Fast & Furious 6.  She also sat as a judge on The Voice UK and the talent show X Factor. We must not forget that even the smallest appearance on television contributes to Rita Ora’s net worth.

Where Does Rita Ora Net Worth Come From?

Recently, Ora launched her own fashion line in collaboration with popular clothing brand Adidas. She hasn’t announced any new career as a fashion designer yet, but this would undoubtedly increase her net worth.

She has signed advertising contracts with Coca-Cola and Rimmel, and she is now a global ambassador for the jewellery brand Thomas Sabo. She has featured in a commercial for Skullcandy headphones and she appeared in one of the latest Calvin Klein campaigns.

She has also been the face for several international brands, such as the Italian sneaker brand Superga, and for “Material Girl”, the world-famous clothing line designed by Madonna. In 2019, she was the face of several German luxury brands, as well as the footwear retailer Deichmann.

A Quick Overview Of Her Personal Life

Rita’s maternal grandfather was Osman Bjraktari, the Albanian consul to Russia. Her mother studied medicine in Moscow, where her grandparents met.

Since July 2015, Rita is an Honorary Ambassador of Kosovo. Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair and his wife also joined the ceremony. The pop star said:

“I grew up in Britain, a country that has given me so much for which I am grateful, but I will always have a special place in my heart for my home town and Kosovo.”

Ora has also performed at many charity concerts to raise funds and awareness for girls’ and women’s issues around the world, as well as to help children affected by the Syrian conflict. In 2014, she took part in the third annual “Gabrielle’s Gala” to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

She is also actively sharing with her fans how to donate to fight the recent Australian fires.

What Is Rita Up To Now?

Rita is often featured in several publications because of her appearance on the red carpet, her flash outfits or one of her new flames.

She has been dated big names, such as DJ Calvin Harris and reality TV star Rob Kardashian. Nevertheless, last year she admitted she usually falls in love “really hard”. Allegedly, dating is not one of her priorities, as she mentioned:

‘People love to know about my personal life, and I’ve sort of accepted that, but what I’ve learned about love is that it’s not my main priority right now.’

Allegedly, her net worth has literally doubled in a few years since she became famous as a mainstream artist in 2016.
