The three-time Grammy award winner, singer, model, actress, and songwriter Dua Lipa was once again a guest in The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
The last time Dua Lipa was invited to the show, COVID-19 had not become the pandemic we know today and her album Future Nostalgia had just been released on March 27 of 2020, just ten days after lockdown.
“I think like most people, I thought, oh, the pandemic, two weeks. It’ll be fine. Two years later we are still here.” Lipa said.
In spite of quarantine, Lupa made her way up the charts and was named The breakout star of the pandemic by Rolling Stone magazine. Songs from the album like “Levitating” and “Don’t Start Now” among other catchy and disco-influenced hits, made Dua Lipa one of the most heard artists of 2020. But it was in 2021 when “Levitating” became the most-streamed song of the year in the United States.
“There are a bunch of bangers on there, but that was an extraordinary success. Did you know when you released this album it was going to be “Levitating”? ” Colbert asked.
“Definitely not. I can never preempt what song is the one that people are going to react with the best. But “Levitating” was the first song that helped dictate the rest of the album” she answered
Because of the pandemic, Dua Lipa had to cancel the world tour of the album in 2020. Unfortunately, she postponed it as the health crisis dragged on but finally, two years later, she announced the official comeback.
“Initially when I was going to go on tour it was only meant to be a month after the album was out. I hoped the fans would quickly learn the lyrics and come and watch me. But this time I’ve done a lot of audience research, and so I feel I know which songs people like” Lipa commented.
The very best hits of Dua Lipa are waiting to be heard by wide audiences across the globe on the 2022 World Tour of Future Nostalgia which has already confirmed dates in Europe, Australia, North America, and Latin America.
