DUA LIPA! DUA LIPA! DUA LIPA!

Words cannot begin to describe my love for the new up and coming dark pop artist, Dua Lipa. This morning Lipa announced the dates for her U.S headlining tour, and you KNOW you’ll catch me at her Chicago show on February 24th at Lincoln Hall.

Dua Lipa is a 22-year-old musician from London, who is musically influenced by artist such as Kendrick Lamar and Nelly Furtado. She began her career by uploading covers to YouTube, and then started to write original music, her first song being, “Hotter Than Hell,” which is a total bop.

Lipa has a nineties vibe to her style, with a unique and poised personality, which makes it impossible not to adore her.

In the past year, Lipa has released new music, played shows in Europe, and was an opening act for Troye Sivan during his Suburbia Tour. On January 6th, Lipa released a new single, “Thinking ‘Bout You,” which serves as a soulful ballad. Later this year Lipa will also be releasing a new album, that I so look forward to hearing.

Lipa’s most popular song, “Blow Your Mind (Mwah),” has been catching the airwaves, and has been a major jam for the clubs. In case you need any more persuasion to love Dua Lipa as much as I do, here are some of her best live performances:

  1. “Blow Your Mind (Mhaw)” – from BBC

2. Cover of Mark Ronson’s “Somebody To Love Me” with Troye Sivan

3. “Hotter Than Hell” – at Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball
