In a short space of time Dua Lipa has managed to morph into a worldwide sensation with hit records coming out of her ears. The British singer released her debut self-titled album in 2017 and has gone on to work with some of music’s biggest icons. For her 2020 Club Future Nostalgia LP, the Hotter Than Hell chart-topper scored herself some major collaborations. For the remix of Levitating Lipa managed to partner with rap legend Missy Elliott and pop culture phenomenon Madonna on the same track. But that was not all, for Mark Ronson’s remix of Physical she had No Doubt frontwoman Gwen Stefani jump on the song.
Overall, 2020 was a great year for Lipa. Her album Future Nostalgia became her first chart-topping project in the UK, which featured some of last year’s most successful songs, Don’t Start Now, Break My Heart and Levitating. After it was announced she had earned herself five Grammy Award nominations, she took home the trophy for Best Pop Vocal Album the following year.
Dua performed a digital concert titled Studio 2054 during the coronavirus pandemic and invited Kylie Minogue to join her. The duo sang Kylie’s song Last Groove and ended up releasing their own version together for fans to enjoy. Since working with the former Neighbours actor, Lipa has revealed how much of a fan she is.
“Since before I was in year three I’ve loved Kylie. I’ve loved all her songs, her music videos, she’s such an icon, she’s the queen,” Lipa said, adding, “I think stylistically what we’re both doing has come at the perfect time and I think we’re both killing it.”
