- ARTIST: Dua Lipa
- SONG: Don’t Start Now
SO ALEX, WHY IS THIS YOUR SONG OF THE WEEK?
Despite her eponymous debut album in 2017 being a huge hit, spawning off chart toppers like ‘New Rules’ and ‘IDGAF’, I will hold my hands up and say Dua Lipa and indeed her success had passed me by. Put it down to the advancement of maturity, if you will.
But her latest single, released last week – and which is looking set for a high new entry later on today when the new chart is revealed – is simply unavoidable and is happily a total bop to go with it.
‘Don’t Start Now’ is a fiery and fierce filter disco belter calling to mind Moloko crossed with a slightly narked off Sophie Ellis-Bextor but that’s not to do it a disservice. Moreover it makes me wonder why I slept on her before now as this is marvellous.
‘Don’t Start Now’ is available to stream and download now, and Dua Lipa’s as yet to be titled second album will be out next year, both via Warner Music. Twitter: @DuaLipa
