Britsh pop sensation Dua Lipa exploded into our lives in 2017 with her incredibly successful, self-titled debut album. She has since teased us about releasing her second album more than once, but only recently did it become official.
“I was writing so much on the road for the first one,” Lipa explained to The Face when asked it took her so long to finalize work on her next album. “I got thrown into this crazy promo schedule, and then I ended up touring for three years.”
The success of her first album is made doubly impressive when you remember how much harder it is for new artists to break out nowadays. “I remember when Katy Perry’s ‘I Kissed a Girl’ came out,” Lipa contrasted her own rise to fame with that of the veteran pop-queen. “It was like, where did this person even come from? All of a sudden, it was just a massive smash all over the world and everybody knew who Katy Perry was.”
She went on to add: “Things were so different back then, you just had to have one big song, and people would play it on the radio, and that’s it. Whereas now, you really have to nurture every little part of it.”
We still don’t have a definite release date or the album’s title, but since it’s Lipa, we are willing to hang on for a while longer!
