Rita Ora Shoots Video for ‘Shine Ya Light’ in Her Homeland of Kosovo
Rita Ora returned to her roots and filmed the music video for ‘Shine Ya Light’ in her homeland of Kosovo. The song, which is Beyonce‘s favorite tune at the moment, is from the pop newbie’s new album ‘ORA.’
The ‘R.I.P.’ singer was surrounded by hundreds of fans who watched as she shot her video on the streets of Pristina. During the shoot, Rita was wearing white booty shorts with thigh-high leather boots while riding on the back of a motorcycle down the streets of Pristina.
Later that night, the blond-haired songbird was overcome with emotion when they crowd cheered her name during the shoot. At one point, she was seen wiping away tears. Rita was born in the capital city of Kosovo (then known as Yugoslavia) and moved with her family to London when she was just a toddler.
“I was born in a little city called Pristina which no one really knows about, so I’m proud to kind of put it on the map out there a little bit because we are a very patriotic country. So we always try and mention us wherever we can because it’s such a great place,” she told the U.K.’s Daily Mail. “I think Kosovo as a nation — we’re very proud of where we’re from because it’s such a small place, so anyone that succeeds from there is just a big deal.”
The ‘Shine Ya Light’ video is expected to premiere on the Internet in October. There is still no word on when Rita will release her debut album ‘ORA’ in the United States.
