There isn’t even an air hesitation coming from rising pop starlet Dua Lipa. On the one-hand she’s a thoroughly intriguing lady and on the flip-side, we’ve gotten to know in a short space of time that she’s a formidable songstress who caters to pack-in a powerhouse punch of vocal prowess.
As if we didn’t know already that things are stepping up a notch to go big for Dua, especially after the arrival of her big-gun, crowd pulling single “Hotter Than Hell”. Dua is currently busy establishing herself with the biggest of listening audiences around the world too. Most recently coverting a spot on NBC’s the Tonight Show.
This week it was announced that Dua’s self-titled debut album is scheduled for release in February of 2017. Whilst it does seem quite a way off to be sharing images of the album cover and such, it really is the just the beginnings of the promotion campaign entering into a bigger-push. A bigger push that will see Dua first step out on a European tour, inclusive of a headline show at London’s KOKO commencing October of this year.
With that news in, it all makes a little more sense now to understand why the album pre-order is now up and running.
In celebration of this announcement, there is another sweetener to be had. More commonly known as the instant-grat or album countdown single.
Following on from the lasting impression which “Hotter Than Hell” delivered, the choice of “Blow Your Mind” is again a dancier affair albeit littered with Dua’s smokey tones and overall fierceness. Unabashed with a give no fucks attitude, “Blow Your Mind” is no way presumptuous, as it literally does instantly take a hold with a very prevalent incendiary pop stance and thus, blow your mind.
If you want to be a part of a hot ticket to pop domination over the next 6 months, get worldly-wise of the rising starlet now, because bang on with material impacting of a caliber like this there is only one direction that Dua is going and that’s global!
