The daughter of Kosovar Albanian refugees, Dua Lipa was born in 1995 and grew up in London, developing a taste for music as a child, influenced by artists such as Nelly Furtado and Pink. Dua Lipa attended the Sylvia Young Theater School, where she developed her singing skills and began posting versions of songs by Alicia Keys and Christina Aguilera on YouTube and Soundcloud. “Hotter Than Hell”, the first song she composed, led Dua Lipa to get the attention of Warner Bros and the signing of a contract with the record company.
Dua Lipa has conquered the public and the critics: in 2017 she won the Best Emerging Artist award in the NME Award. She has also received two Brit Awards for Best British Soloist and a number one at the UK Single Charts for her single with Calvin Harris “One Kiss”. Finally, in 2019 she won the award for best new artist at the Grammy Awards and the award for best recording of Dance for the song “Electricity” in collaboration with Mark Ronson and Diplo.
Her second studio album “Future Nostalgia” (2020) has the songs “Dont Start Now”, “Physical” and “Break My Heart” as singles. Dua Lipa will present this album live with concerts starting in 2021.
