Pop sensation Dua
Lipa
did her part to help relieve the monotony of self-isolation this week by
releasing a new video for her latest single, the day before making an early
drop of her highly anticipated new album, “Future
Nostalgia
.”

The singer, who exploded
onto the music scene in 2015 with a self-titled, chart topping debut album
which eclipsed 4 million sales worldwide, on Thursday revealed the pop art
video for “Break My Heart.” Taking viewers on a rollercoaster of a journey
through the trials and tribulations of relationships, the track is the third single
from “Future Nostalgia,” following the the number one global hit single “Don’t Start Now,” and
her current UK smash single “Physical.”

On Friday, Dua released
the entire album, which is now available for download on all digital platforms,
as well as in physical formats which include pink neon vinyl, CD, picture disc,
gold cassette and a deluxe box set.

In addition, she
released an announcement of rescheduled dates for her upcoming “Future
Nostalgia” UK and European Tour, which was originally set for this year but has
now been pushed back to early 2021.

Dua Lipa made history
with her debut album, which became the most streamed album by a female artist
in Spotify history. The video for her breakout global #1 hit “New Rules”
made her the youngest female solo artist to reach one billion views on YouTube,
and the track was the first to spend a record 45 weeks on the Billboard Pop
Songs Chart. She set another milestone in 2018 by becoming the first female
artist to pick up five BRIT Award nominations, with two wins for British
Breakthrough Act and British Female Solo Artist, and in 2019, she received two
Grammy awards for Best New Artist and Best Dance Recording. 

The adrenaline-fueled
lead single from “Future Nostalgia,” “Don’t Start Now,” has over 600 million
streams and hit #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 – Dua Lipa’s highest position on
that chart to date. Her newest UK smash single “Physical” was released with an
accompanying super-charged rainbow-colored video and immediately hit the
Billboard Hot 100.
