The bestselling artist has faced an uphill battle while trying to release this album. She and Jay-Z’s record label, Roc Nation, parted ways, and then there were plenty of other delays. Ora had also mentioned that her split from the record label put her on an emotional rollercoaster.
Many artists don’t give their crew any recognition, but Ora gave those who worked with on the album their dues. She said that she appreciated their love and support. In fact, that is what allowed her to create this album that she is so proud of. It has been six years, and her fans are sure that it will be worth the wait.
