Rita Ora said getting discovered by Jay‑Z was so quick she scarcely had time for a quick squirt of deodorant.
When the singer got the call from Roc Nation she said she "flew straight from London" and "didn't even have time to wash".
She also told Paper magazine that when she met her new boss she didn't have much time to hang around being starstruck either.
"When I shook Jay's hand I was like, 'Oh. My. God.'," she remarked. "We went to the studio, and that was it."
