Rita Ora knocks chart queen Tulisa to second place on charts with “R.I.P”LONDON - Rising star Rita Ora smashed through to the top of the singles charts this week, while rockers Keane landed their fifth consecutive album chart No. 1, a record run beaten only by the Beatles, the Official Charts Company said on Sunday.
Briton Ora, 21, took the top spot with “R.I.P” featuring Tinie Tempah. No stranger to the charts’ upper reaches, Ora had previously featured on No. 1 single “Hot Right Now” by DJ Fresh, the fastest selling single of 2012 so far.
Knocking last week’s chart queen Tulisa back to second place, Ora’s “R.I.P” is taken from her upcoming, not-yet-titled debut album, which will be released later this year.
Heartthrob Justin Bieber supplied guest vocals to the singles charts’ only other new entry, “Live My Life” by Far East Movement at No. 7, the group’s third top 20 single.
