Dua Lipa is an English singer and songwriter. After working as a model, she signed with Warner Bros. Records in 2014 and released her eponymous debut album in 2017.
My first encounter with her was MTV Push on her and her “Be The One” song in 2015 (if I remember it correctly). My reaction was “Oh okay is she the long lost sibling of Haim?” since the song’s vibe and her appearance looks like Haim’s.
Then, as I only watched MTV and music channels in television, I heard her “Blow Your Mind (Mwah)”. I felt the song is nice and electrifying, but I still thought that she is in the same compartment of the new British (alternative) Invasion, similar with Clean Bandit and Jess Glynne. I had not yet pictured her to be in the line of mainstream pop.
Then came “New Rules” in 2017. I knew it right there from the first hearing that this would be one of the summer songs of 2017, which it was. Everything in the song just hit the ingredients of mainstream pop. Yet I still held some reserves as some summer hits singer became one-hit wonder (Gotye, everyone?).
But with “IDGAF” and “One Kiss” released in 2018, she just sealed the deal of becoming the next legendary mainstream pop artist. This opinion was reinforced even more when I attended her concert in Singapore in May 2018. I was coming with only knowing half of her songs, yet I found her entire setlist to be entertainingly intriguing. In fact, it triggered me to look after her other songs, which apparently quite a lot with more than 20 songs.
Now when people asked what my favorite songs of hers are, I even skipped “New Rules”. My Top 3 are “Lost in Your Light”, “Dreams”, and “Begging”. Geez, these songs are so underrated they need more exposures. Even more surprisingly, her ballads like “Thinking ’Bout You” and “Homesick” are great as well.
Confidently, I can say that a new star has born. Just like I felt toward Adele and Sam Smith. I just hope she won’t experience the bad second album syndrome that plagued Duffy.
I think Dua Lipa is a wonderful artist. She is the most beautiful person in the world. She's the most awesome person I've ever seen. In such a little , time she'd gained so much popularity and love . From being an ordinary girl covering songs , she turned into a perfect singer. Her self-titled album is amazing and now she is determined to win hearts all around the world. All of her songs hits you with a new vibe , mixing up your feelings . Her voice is so sweet and charming. She looks so cute and lovely. As an artist and as a person, she is best in both her forms. If this continues on (which I hope will certainly hapen) , she's gonna rule the music world in no time. I just hope she just stays this way... (and wish I could meet her, just for once, 'cause she's myyyy loveeee :p)
