Coverage: Dua Lipa blows minds with an acoustic showcase in Manila

Dua Lipa is a 21-year old British singer-songwriter and model of Albanian descent behind synth-pop hits like “Blow Your Mind (Mwah)” and “Be The One”. If her name rings any bell, one reason is probably you’ve heard her hit collaboration with Martin Garrix, “Scared To Be Lonely”. Or because she is named second to only Adele among female British music artists. Or, well, she’s just that good despite her emergent status.

Rising to fame with her YouTube covers of pop artists, Lipa signed with Warner Bros Records in 2015. By August of the same year she released first single “New Love”, followed by “Be The One” in October, which debuted atop the UK’s Singles Chart and, together with her Sean Paul-collaborated single “No Lies”, made her the only artist beside Ed Sheeran to hold both No. 1 and 2 spots on the Top 20 Chart. 2016’s “Blow Your Mind (Mwah)” became her first entry to the Billboard Hot 100, claiming the 72nd spot before reaching No. 23 on the Mainstream Top 40 chart.

Dua Lipa brought her impressive profile and chart-toppers to the Philippines for the first time on Saturday, May 13. The singer put on her pop prowess in a stripped down private media showcase and meet a few chosen LOVEs (her official fan club) ahead of her return this August 17 at In The Mix Manila, where she’ll join the ranks of DNCE, Zara Larsson and 5 Seconds of Summer.
