Dua Lipa performs “Don’t Start Now” during The Voice Live Finale, Part 2 2019.
Dua Lipa is an English singer, songwriter and model. After working as a model, she signed with Warner Music Group in 2015 and soon released her first song, “New Love”.
Her eponymous debut album was released in 2017, and contained seven singles, including two UK top-ten singles “Be the One” and “IDGAF” and the UK number-one single “New Rules”, which also reached number six in the United States. The single “One Kiss” with Calvin Harris reached number one in the UK, and became the longest running number one for a female artist in 2018. The success of the singles helped her self-titled album to become the most streamed female album ever on Spotify, and to achieve platinum in several countries, including the UK and the US. In late 2019, she released the lead single “Don’t Start Now” from her upcoming second album Future Nostalgia which is planned to be released in 2020. Lipa has been the recipient of three Brit Awards and two Grammy Awards.
Dua Lipa was born in Westminster, London to Kosovo Albanian parents. Her father Dukagjin Lipa is a marketing manager who is also lead vocalist in a Kosovan rock band, Oda. Her mother Anesa Lipa (née Rexha) works in tourism. Her parents are originally from Kosovo but left Pristina in 1992. Her father Dukagjin is the son of historian Seit Lipa who was the head of the Kosovo Institute of History from 1990 to 1995. Lipa has two younger siblings. She attended Sylvia Young Theatre School part-time before moving to Kosovo with her family in 2006 when her father had been offered a job. There she attended the Mileniumi i Tretë school in Pristina. Her first name means “love” in Albanian. Lipa explained “Now I’m proud of it. Now I am. But when I was growing up, all I wanted was to be called Hannah, Sarah, Ella… anything normal. Because with Dua you had to explain: I’m from Kosovo.”
At the age of 14, Lipa began posting covers of her favourite songs by artists such as Pink and Nelly Furtado on YouTube. At the age of 15, she moved back to London with aspirations of becoming a singer. Lipa lived with a friend and studied at Parliament Hill School, returning to the Sylvia Young Theatre School on Saturdays. She began working as a model for the online catalogue ASOS Marketplace when she was 16. She also worked as a hostess. In 2013, she starred in a television advertisement for The X Factor.
