Gorgeous 26-year-old Dua Lipa (believe it or not, that is her real name!) is hitting the road in support of her second studio album, ‘Future Nostalgia’ (2020), which was released to fan and critical acclaim. It earned six Grammy nominations—including Album of the Year, Record of the Year and Song of the Year—and became her first UK number-one album. The album helped Lipa win British Female Solo Artist and British Album of the Year at the 2021 Brit Awards. She has received many accolades, including recognition on the Time 100 Next list (2021).
‘Future Nostalgia is the follow-up to her self-titled 2017 release. Described by Lipa as dark pop, progressive pop and “dance-crying”, Dua Lipa is a dance-pop, electropop and R&B record with elements of disco, hip hop and tropical house. This sound features hip hop-influenced verses with heavy flow and truthful lyrics, alongside a pop chorus. The album is very diverse and balances between stripped-back ballads and upbeat tracks. It features electronic instrumentation and rock vocals. The album’s lyrics are inspired by sadness and include themes of female empowerment, relationships and heartbreak and has several biblical references. Lipa was inspired by several artists on the album, originally intending to create a sound merging that of J. Cole and Nelly Furtado. The album includes guest appearances from Miguel and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin.
Her 2018 single “One Kiss” with Calvin Harris peaked at number one in the UK and became the year’s longest-running number-one single by a female artist, winning the 2019 Brit Award for Song of the Year. In 2019, she won the Grammy Award for Best New Artist, as well as the Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording for her Silk City-collaboration “Electricity.” Later that year, Lipa released “Don’t Start Now” as the lead single from her second studio album. Reaching number two in the UK and US, and number four on the US year-end chart, it was the most commercially successful song by a female artist in the US in 2020. Its follow-up singles “Levitating”, “Physical” and “Break My Heart” also charted in the top ten.
