With her platinum blonde dyed locks, risqué fashion sense and name firmly imprinted on Jay-Z’s record label – the music world can’t help but compare newbie Rita Ora to Rihanna.

And while RiRi continues to dominate the pop charts, make her transition into movies and sex up her already racy image – could she have some competition on her hands from the 21-year-old rising star?

Well, the ‘How We Do (Party)’ singer, who’s worked with the likes of Tinie Tempah, Kanye West and will.i.am on her debut album, certainly seems to think so!

“I think Jay Z definitely sees me as someone who could be as big as Rihanna,” she told The Guardian.

“She’s a superstar now but they first knew her as a small-island girl – and they want to repeat that success.”

And one way of doing just that could be sharing the studio with the ‘We Found Love’ star…

"Doing a feature with her would be so cool," Rita told MTV News of a possible collaboration.

"The video would be kinda hot."
