Rita Ora's self-belief is the secret to her success.

The 'How We Do (Party)' singer feels her confidence helped her reach the top of the UK charts by the age of 22 and even when things were tough she never gave up on herself.

Speaking to SBTV.co.uk in a video made for the National Citizen Service (NCS) Self Belief series, Rita said: " It's all about self-belief in this industry especially because you never know what the next door to open will be, you never know what your next track is gonna do or what your album's going to sell

"It's very unpredictable. I got signed at the age of 14 and people told me these things that just fall through. Yeah, I was broken, upset and hurt. But I always believed in myself. I always believed that one day I was meant to do this, someone would hear me. Self-belief is kind of the main thing if you want to get on, especially in this industry full of sharks."

Rita is rumoured to have recruited Jay-Z, will.i.am, Drake and Kanye West to contribute to her second album, and it appears she has already started work on it, tweeting earlier today (09.04.13): "Strike a pose! #NYC #album2 #excited."
