Freaky deeky! I am, absolutely convinced Dua Lipa read my review of her latest track “Physical.” I am sure I am the one who planted the idea of a workout video right into her pretty little head, with my rantings about Dame Olivia Newton-John’s 1981, hit of the same name. I am speaking in jest of course, as narcissism is not my vibe at all. I will confess at having a massive smile break out across my face when the alert arrived in my inbox about this new, high-energy workout video, which has also been, released in support of the song.
I previously stated that “Blatantly, obviously, I would have had no qualms” about Dua giving us her, own reimagining of the iconic 80s gem. But not really, expecting her to actually, go so far as to deliver a similarly sassy alternative music video. I mean, this really, is too much of a treat for 80s pop culture fans. You should also know I wouldn’t loop back so fast to re-blog a track, so soon after it’s original release either. Dua made it hard for me not to pledge my support. Being truthful, I have a condition called gym phobia. Having this condition means that I feel the burn just by watching the exercise classmates go through their warm-up routine, in the new clip.
If you think Dua is merely paying tribute to Dame Olivia Newton-John or the 80s, think again. The merch used in the video is now available to buy from her online store. Don’t fret if you don’t think you could rock a yellow bodysuit in the way that Dua does. The sweatpants look like a comfier option if you ask me. Besides, her merch marketing team hasn’t missed a trick, with being of the present times. The coffee mug is out and in comes the refillable water bottle as the preferred merch option for 2020 daily living.
Can’t wait for Dua’s sophomore album “Future Nostalgia” April 3rd, arrival? Here’s the full tracklisting to tide you over until release day. You may also want to bear mind. The new album will be available for download on all digital platforms as well as physical on the following formats; pink neon vinyl, CD, picture disc, gold cassette and deluxe box set, all of which are now available from Dua’s web store here.
