Rita Ora has reportedly signed a new record deal with Warner Music, having reached an out of court settlement with Roc Nation over her previous recordings contract.

As previously reported, Ora sued Jay-Z’s music firm late last year, accusing the company of stalling her career by repeatedly delaying the release of her second album. Roc Nation retaliated with a countersuit saying that it had to date spent over $2 million on a new LP that she had failed to complete.

A newly filed document at the New York Supreme Court shows that an out of court settlement has now, as was always expected, been reached.

Meanwhile, Ora posted a Snapchat video on Sunday announcing that it was “contract time”, though she gave no further details. However, it is rumoured that she has done a deal with Warner Music. The major label did not respond to a request for comment.
