R&B/Soul
RECORDING ARTIST : DUA LIPA | RECORDING LABEL : WARNER BROTHERS RECORDS

She’s young, fresh, hip, and she’s breaking out. Dua Lipa, a name known in the Indie music scene, is a 20 year old singer, songwriter, and model from London with Albanian roots making her way onto the mainstream charts. Her sound is a bit gritty, soulful, and powerful all at the same time. Think Jessie J or P!nk. Her punkish, pop vibe match her unique style and personality to perfection.

Born and raised in London, Lipa attended the Sylvia Young Theater School, where artists such as Rita Ora and Amy Winehouse attended, to work on her singing until she was thirteen. At fourteen, she was posting cover videos on YouTube of artists such as Christina Aguilera. By fifteen, after a short move to her family’s homeland of Kosovo, she was an independent woman living on her own in London pursuing her singing career and working as a model.

By 2012, Dua Lipa released her first demo which caught the attention of Lana Del Rey’s management team who shortly thereafter signed the young artist. Soon after she quickly began work on her debut single, “New Love”, which released in 2015, with the help of International superstar Bruno Mars and producer Emile Haynie. Following the success of her single, she released the upbeat, funky track “Be The One” in October 2015 which landed her on the BBC Sound of 2016 which recognizes promising new music talent.

The soulful songstress is currently signed to Warner Bros. Records working on her debut album which is set to be released in February of 2017. In January she kicked off her first European tour. Lipa is said to have described her music as dark-pop and is extremely passionate about her music, having written every song with the exception of “New Love”.

Her latest release “Last Dance”, which dropped early in 2016, makes you want to get up and dance while shouting out in chorus. The lyrics are powerful, catchy, and something many can relate to. She captivates you with her vocals and you can feel the music deep in your soul.   Whether it’s pain, passion, love or all the above, the lyrics combine with the heart, pulsing beats that grip your body and take over. Without realizing, you’re swaying to the beat, moving with each word. You literally feel love crashing.

All my music is very autobiographical. I write a lot about the things that have happened to me and surrounded me – the whole story behind my music is that people all go through the same thing in one way or another. It’s all very personal.
