Music Monday – Dua Lipa!

Happy Music Monday! This weeks chosen track is a tune from Dua Lipa. Dua Lipa is quickly becoming one of the countries favourite artists as she’s now an award winning singer after recently winning both Best British Break Through Act and Best British Solo Act at The Brits this year. She’s sassy, funky, her voice is incredible and have you seen her music videos? This girl can dance!
The chosen track IDGAF is an abbreviation for ‘I don’t give a F**K’. I’m not usually a fan of swear words in songs but it kind of works for this break up song. The track was released in mid Jan 2018 and as the seventh release from her self titled album it’s been doing pretty well as it’s sat high in charts around the world. She takes the direct lyrics that she’s well known for and blends them with an awesome beat and military drums. It’s a cool mix of interesting sound and you’ll be humming along to the melody for days.
The video, a combination of mirror imagery and some what contemporary moves took 22 hours to film. It’s complex but fun and is worth a watch. Take a listen below and let me know what you thinks of the current Dua Lipa track in the comments below or over on Twitter.
Happy Monday!


Music Monday: Dua Lipa

Happy Monday! Hope you have had a lovely weekend. I’ve had a little bit of a break as I’ve been ill but Monday has brought a new week and a positive mental attitude so lets get going!
This weeks track is a cheeky one from the lovely UK singer-song writer Dua Lipa and her song New Rules. She’s an ex – part time student of the famous Sylvia Young Theatre School. She started popping song covers of her favourite singers on Youtube and in 2015 she was finally signed by Warner Music Group. Her first self titled album came out in June 2017 and New Rules is the sixth single from the album.
For me New Rules has a really cool Kiesha vibe to it, with a little bit of Nelly Furtado and Pink thrown in too. The song is a about a list of rules that she has for herself for a relationship that’s unhealthy that she doesn’t want to get back into. It’s a little risque but the song is so catchy and it’s real as it’s a situation that most people can connect with. The song was loved so much that when it was released this summer it quickly went to number one in UK, making her the first British lady to do that since Adele two years previous. Quite something!
