Roc Nation is has hit back at Rita Ora, only that this time Jay Z’s label has filed a countersuit aimed at the singer.
According to TMZ, Roc Nation claims the label signed Ora in 2008 when she was unknown and invested millions in her career. She was supposed to deliver five albums, but the label says it only got one, 2012’s ‘Ora’.
The 25-year-old singer sued Roc Nation in December, claiming she was ‘orphaned’ by the imprint to the point where she no longer had a relationship with anyone at the company. She had recorded material for a second album, but the label did not release it and instead focused its efforts on its athletic division.
In the lawsuit, Roc Nation claims it already spent upwards of $2.3 million on marketing her second album, and the label is seeking to recoup the money.
Ora’s U.S. debut (2012’s Ora) was released internationally and it is yet to see the light of day.
