It’s official, Dua Lipa is the biggest pop artist now. Her success caught critics by surprise because most artists aren’t given a second chance after a first successful album. They are usually written off as a one-hit-wonder, more than ever in the digital streaming era.
The smart artist quickly realize they need a catalogue of unforgettable songs once they catch the publics attention. Dua Lipa took this approach. She used the same songwriting/production team that crafted her worldwide smash New Rules and followed it up with Don’t Start Now.
Whereas many artists like Lady Gaga chose to postpone their albums, the Brit singer moved up her release. Fortunately for her, critics love her album, giving it the best album of 2020 so far.
No doubt the up-beat 80’s inspired album Future Nostalgia has an untimely release. But maybe this is what people need now during pandemic. I don’t know. Her songs are dance-floor ready but the clubs are closed.
Here is the thing. I like Dua Lipa. Where many artists are live streaming social distancing and clean-your-hand skits – Dua Lupa still is a mystery and unknowable.
According to reports, the singer now currently self-isolating in an Air B&B in London.
