Jay-Z believes that Rita Ora will be able to match the success of her Roc Nation labelmate Rihanna.

The blonde-haired Londoner is currently becoming a well-known name in both the UK and US, and with Jay-Z behind her, is hotly tipped to become one of the hottest UK exports this year.

While most see a resemblence between Rita and Rihanna, she believes she will become an artist in her own right. "I don't think there will be a next Rihanna," Rita told The Guardian.

"But I think [Jay-Z] definitely sees me as someone who could be as big as Rihanna. She's a superstar now but they first knew her as a small-island girl - and they want to repeat that success."

Last week, Rita was surprised to find that Beyonce was in the audience when she performed a classic Destiny's Child hit.

Do you think Rita will be able to replicate Rihanna's success?
