Rita Ora Serenades Her Home Country of Kosovo in ‘Shine Ya Light’ Video
Rita Ora goes back to her roots in her video for ‘Shine Ya Light’ — and we don’t mean the ones that lie beneath her blond tresses.
Ora is a native Albanian, though she was raised in Britain, and she returned to her home country of Kosovo for the clip, an inspirational track encouraging listeners to shine as brightly as they can. She greets a crowd of locals in the native tongue and dances on a rooftop in a bikini top and scarf designed after the nation’s flag — she’s got abs as good as her pipes. We’re also treated to Ora enjoying the locals, walking her dog with kids, riding on a motorcycle and leading a police motorcade. Like the song’s message, Ora shows that where you’re from doesn’t dictate where you can go — and that you can always go home.
