Introducing: Dua Lipa
Dua Lipa is a girl you’re all about to hear a lot from. Her new single ‘Last Dance’ is gaining lots of traction online and she already made waves last year by signing with Warner Bros. Records. But before we get into all that good stuff, allow us to introduce you to your potential new obsession.
Dua is from London and began to show an interest in music at the age of 14. Naturally, she got her start by posting YouTube covers and original songs. However, it wasn’t until the last year that she started really making a name for herself.
Throughout the past twelve months, she’s created her debut album and released a string of singles that earned her a spot on on the BBC’s Sound of 2016 list. Obviously a very prestigious nomination that has helped launch the careers of many.
While she didn’t end up winning the title of BBC’s Sound of 2016, it doesn’t sound like she’ll need any help with anything if you take her new single ‘Last Dance’ into account. Describing her sound as “dark pop”, Dua channels a world music sound on this seductive banger that has all the makings of becoming a proper breakout song for this young songstress.
Dua Lipa’s debut album is scheduled for release during 2016.
