The Secret Struggle Rita Ora Endured Making Her New Album 'Phoenix'

Rita Ora graces the upcoming cover of UK fashion mag Clash and inside she talks about the six year gap between her debut album Ora and her upcoming release Phoenix.

She revealed there was a struggle behind the scenes over legal issues and creative control, which she eventually seized. While it was incredibly challenging at times, it was all worth it.

"I feel like I’ve just started, in the weirdest way," she says. "I earned a new found respect [from my peers in the industry]. Now, though, it’s time to put that stuff away and get this chapter going."

That chapter gets going full swing when Phoenix arrives November 23rd.
