2018 is an exciting new year, which means a new variety of inspiring music for eardrums to experience. This week make sure to keep an eye out for Dua Lipa, who is no stranger to the topic of love. In her boy troubles, she presents herself as any girl would; but by showing off glamorous and robust messages to her listeners, she is able to give advice that girls need to hear and tell boys what they should be wary of. With the release of her deluxe album, (available on the iTunes and Google Play store, featuring her hit songs “New Rules” and “IDGAF”) has set music on another level of upbeat with a strong background. If you’re a Katy Perry, P!nk, or even a Sia fan, then she might just be for you.
The album opens with “Genesis”, a song filled with cosmic tunes that match the singer’s voice. From there, it jumps right up to “Lost in Your Light,” featuring Miguel with a wonderful P!nk vibe.
Her latest song, “IDGAF,” gives off a tremendous beat as it should with at title like that. As if taking the gloves off in the ring, Lipa does not hold back her feelings. “New Rules” also makes note of how girls should be when dealing with an ex-man they know are bad for them.
Lipa started out her singing career doing covers of other artists on YouTube. She was mainly influenced by P!nk and Nelly Furtado. She worked to put her name in the music industry and did so with her first album “New Love” in 2015. Gaining popularity swiftly and with the release of her second single “Be the One,” Lipa became well known throughout Europe and some parts of the world. She gained worldwide attention with the release of her song “Hotter than Hell” in 2016. She continues to pursue her passion in music and does not seem to be stopping anytime soon.
