Although she claims that Jay-Z gracefully vowed to release her, Rita Ora is being countersued by Roc Nation for breach of her five-album contract. Back in 2008, Ora, who was then 18, sealed the deal with the Roc, and according to her lawsuit in December against the label, they didn’t play their part. She accused the label of being negligent towards her career and focusing on other pursuits, such as Tidal and Roc Nation Sports.
Roc Nation, however, claims to have invested millions in promoting Ora. The organization considers Rita to be in her “second album cycle” and they’ve spent $2,353,500 so far on the promo for her sophomore LP, which has yet to be released. Rita argues to have been paying out of pocket to market her own project. The label, on the other hand, is totally not with the sh*ts and would like their money back. Since the 5 album contract, the British songstress has only produced one album.
WELP……. Let’s just hope for the best….
