Dua Lipa (means “love” in Albanian) is an English-Kosovar pop singer, songwriter, and model, born on 22 October 1995. She was inspired to follow her dream of becoming a pop star by her father, the Kosovar rock guitarist called Dukagjin Lipa.
Her parents left Pristina (the capital of Kosovo) and moved to England in the early 90s due to economic instability andoppression. Dua, their first-born child, was born in England.
However, the couple decided to go back to their native land in the early 2000s. Dua followed her parents'' decision but soon after she started having regrets and decided to go back to London and follow her biggest dream to become a successful singer. There, Dua studied in the same high-school Amy Winehouse used to attend - the acclaimed Sylvia Young Theatre School.
Her career as a musician started at age 14 when she initially gained popularity by covering songs by other artists and posted them on YouTube.
In 2015, she signed a contract with the giant Warner Music Group and released her debut single soon after. The name of the song is “New love” and it was produced with the help of another big star - Lana Del Rey.
Currently, Dua Lipa is world-known for her singles “IDFAF”, “New Rules”, “Blow your mind”, and “Be the One”. In 2017, the 23-years-old artist won two Brit Awards for 'British female solo artist' and 'British breakthrough act'.
In April this year, Dua collaborated with the Scottish DJ and producer Calvin Harris to record the "90s club inspired" single “One Kiss” which became her second ‘number one’ single in the UK.
Dua Lipa is also one of the front-runners to record the theme song of the next James Bond movie.
She is currently working on her second studio album.
