After a recent split with Roc Nation, Rita Ora has found a new home at Atlantic Records.
The singer took to social media to announce the news on Monday (June 29), saying she’s thankful for her new team… and plans to release new material later this year.
“Music is my first love and I am looking forward to getting my new songs released,” said Ora in a statement. “I’m thankful to my new Atlantic Records family for all their support and encouragement. The next chapter is going to be incredible.”
Ben Cook, president of Atlantic Records UK, praised Ora, saying: “Rita is a rare talent and a true global star. First and foremost she’s a great singer who’s hugely passionate about music and I’m delighted to welcome her to Atlantic Records. We look forward to getting in the studio with her and making an incredible album.”
The singer, 25, sued for release from Roc Nation last year, claiming she was “orphaned” by Jay Z’s label. Roc Nation filed a countersuit earlier this year, but both parties eventually came to an agreement.
Billboard recently reported that Ora has signed a deal with Atlantic’s parent company, Warner Music.
