In 2004, she appeared in the British film Spivs. She auditioned for Eurovision: Your Country Needs You on BBC One to be the British contestant for the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest but later withdrew from the competition after a few episodes as she did not feel ready for the contest.

In 2009, Ora made a cameo on Jay-Z's video for "Young Forever" and "Over" by Drake. Ora caught the attention of Jay-Z and he signed her to Roc Nation, for which she was featured in a commercial for Roc Nation + Skullcandy Aviator Headphones.

She took two years to completely finish her first studio album., Ester Dean, Drake, The-Dream, Kanye West and Stargate all worked with Rita on her debut album.
When speaking about the sound of the album and its concept, Rita said it "definitely has pop in it, but  you can hear influences of jazz in there, you can hear influences of Monica and Aaliyah, and then you can hear Gwen Stefani.” She has also stated the album will be influenced by her father's record collection which, in addition to reggae, also includes such artists as Eric Clapton and B.B. King. Her first solo record, "R.I.P." featuring Tinie Tempah, was released as her first UK single on 6 May 2012.

Whilst touring with Coldplay, Rita later announced that the album would be named Ora. Ora was released on 27 August 2012 and debuted at the top the UK Albums Chart. Her video, "Shine Ya Light", sees the singer return to her birth place Kosovo(Disputed), riding with a flank of bikers and gigging for excited hometown crowds. Rita was nominated for Best UK/Ireland Act, Best New Artist, and Push Artist at the 2012 MTV Europe Music Awards.[2
