There is no stopping for Dua Lipa!
Currently on a sold-out tour around the UK, the singer’s first number one single ‘New Rules‘ has just been certified platinum in the UK. The no scrub anthem joins her debut single ‘Be the One‘ and the Martin Garrix collaboration ‘Scared to Be Lonely‘ as her third platinum-selling single.
Those three trusty rules seemed to save just about everyone in the UK this summer so it’s no surprise that it’s gone platinum in less than three months. With (the seriously underrated) ‘Blow Your Mind (Mwah)‘ certified silver and ‘Hotter Than Hell‘ gone gold, Dua must be getting plaques by the minute.
That’s not all, either. ‘New Rules‘ just hit number one in Belgium (her second chart-topper there!) and has gone platinum in Canada. Come on, Dua!
The ultra-cool singer is also nominated for three awards at the 2017 MTV EMAs, including Best UK & Ireland Act alongside Little Mix, Ed Sheeran and Stormzy.
Dua Lipa has recorded new music with Naughty Boy.
The 22-year-old singer has revealed she’s been busily collaborating with the British DJ, and she’s confirmed that their effort could even appear on Naughty Boy’s new album.
She shared: “We went to write a song for my album. I was in the studio with him and this songwriter called Emily Warren, who actually wrote ‘No Lie’.
“We wrote a song together and he really liked it so it might be on his album.”
The London-born star also revealed the unreleased track is very “personal”, although she remained tight-lipped about the subject matter.
She told The Sun newspaper: “I really don’t know what the future holds for that song but it’s a personal song. I feel really close to it.”
Dua released her self-titled debut album earlier this year, and the singer subsequently confessed that the experience of recording the album taught her a lot about herself.
Reflecting on the process, Dua said: “I learned a lot about myself. I learned about the way I like to work, I learned to try to be as much of an open book as possible. That was really important to me to learn to be more honest with myself.”
Dua also said that the process of recording the album and later, performing her songs on stage was “magical”.
The singer explained: “Being able to work with so many incredible songwriters, to get to experience how their brains work and what it takes to write a song. I think that’s really magical. Being able to perform songs live, and every night when I go out on stage that’s the closest I’ve ever been to magic. It’s really real.”
