hmv's Next Big Thing... #50 Dua Lipa

Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you the hotly tipped sulty songstress Dua Lipa...

 

Who Is She?

Born in Kosovo, but raised in London, Dua Lipa (yes, that's her real name) is a fast-rising singer. She's managed by the same guy who look after Lana Del Rey and she has the same icy cool take on pop. Despite only putting out two proper tracks she's already snaked her way on to the BBC Sound of 2016 longlist...

 

Who Does She Sound Like?

Sultry vocals, mixing 90s R'N'B with more contemporary pop, think BANKS, Alessia Cara, Lion Babe, and, of course, Lana...

 

Why Should I Be Excited?

Icy cool tunes and an awesome voice, they usually go together pretty well. 

 

Can I Hear Something?

Certainly. Her new single 'Be The One' is below for you and you can check out her early singles here in our digital store.
