After a bumper year of winning Grammy and Brit Awards, Dua Lipa has been revealed as the UK’s most played artist of 2020. For the previous three years that accolade had been accorded to Ed Sheeran.

After Lipa’s multi-award winning album Future Nostalgia shot up the charts during lockdown it has now been revealed that her songs were played more than anyone else’s last year.

The 25-year-old rocketed to fame in 2017 with her track New Rules and her career has been gathering pace ever since.

Responding to this latest acclaim she said, “Thank you to everyone that listened to and loved my music during 2020. I’m incredibly proud that I was the most-played artist on radio, TV and all across the UK. I so wanted Future Nostalgia to bring some happiness during such a difficult time.”
