Dua Lipa stopped to chat with Billboard’s Tetris Kelly on the red carpet at the 2019 American Music Awards on Sunday night (Nov. 24), discussing her latest single “Don't Start Now,” her new found love for dancing, whether or not she has any new collaborations in the works and what advice she would give to new artists.
Asked why she decided to kick off her new era of music with “Don't Start Now,” Lipa tells Billboard that the track describes what’s to come on her next record.
“It's got a theme going through it,” she explains. “It's more disco orientated, 80s-inspired. It's fun. It's honest lyrics, but not taking myself too seriously. I just want people when they hear it just to want to dance and just to have fun and just to go out and spend time with their friends.”
