Her new single just broke a record in the United Kingdom.

But Rita Ora was across the pond in West Hollywood this Friday, stepping out to the Sunset Marquis Bar in a sizzling ensemble.

The Pristina-born 27-year-old slipped into a pair of thigh-high black leather boots and threw on a gleaming black leather jacket to match.


Tucking her luxurious platinum blonde hairdo behind her ears, she modeled a black dress with a slant hem and some swirling rust-colored patterning.

Rita accessorized with a glistening necklace, playing up her fabulous features with an elegant makeup job that included scarlet lipstick.

Her sophomore studio album is slated for release next month, and her latest single Let Me Love You is a cut off that record.

When Let Me Love You hit number 6 in Britain, Rita became the UK female artist with the most top 10 songs ever in the country, per the Official Charts Company.

It was her 13th single to rise to the top 10, enabling her to sail past Petula Clark and Shirley Bassey, both of whom are more than 50 years older than Rita.

Her first album Ora bowed in 2012, and in between the two albums coming out, Rita had a turbulent few years, including a breakup with Calvin Harris and the legally fraught process of splitting from the recording company Roc Nation.

She went nude recently for Clash and dished: 'I know some people in the industry who I won’t name but who have messaged me to say: "You’re a badass for doing what you did."

Said Rita: 'I earned a new found respect. Now, though, it’s time to put that stuff away and get this chapter going.'

She told the media outlet: 'I feel like I’ve just started, in the weirdest way.'
