Dua Lipa — an English singer, songwriter, and model — may just be 2017’s breakout artist. Her debut album titled her own name “Dua Lipa” was released this past June and has become a hit sensation amongst teens and young adults. Lipa’s brings on synthetic, hard pop to her audience in the 12 tracks included in her album.

Lipa has previously released two singles in 2015, four remix albums and two single in 2016, and “The Only (EP)” in March of 2017. The EP (extended player) includes three of the songs on the “Dua Lipa” album, which took a total of three years to finish.

The 22 year old artist included six singles in her “Dua Lipa” album, one of them being “New Rules,” the number-one single that was included in Billboard’s “Top 40 Hits.” The song has been labeled a “breakup and female empowerment anthem” with lyrics such as “One, don’t pick up the phone, you know he’s only calling ’cause he’s drunk and alone.”

Lipa’s synthetic, hard pop songs like “New Rules” and “Blow Your Mind (Mwah)” are contrasted by sparse pop ballads such as “Homesick.”

The album features artist Miguel in the song “Lost in Your Light.” The song speaks of being “addicted to your light” and wanting to “stay here all night.”

“Dua Lipa” is an album full of upbeat, dance music and includes empowering lyrics. Lipa channels confidence and emotion through her music that is included in this debut album.
