Dua Lipa is so hot right now.
The British artist made a mockery of those “difficult second album” theories by hammering her sophomore set out the park.
2020’s Future Nostalgia ruled the Official U.K. Album Chart for four weeks, went to No. 3 on the Billboard 200 and spawned a string of top 40 hits on the Billboard Hot 100. The awards came in bunches, as Lipa dominated the 2021 Brit Awards, where she took out best female artist and Future Nostalgia won the top prize, British album.
At the 2021 Grammy Awards, she bagged best pop vocal album — for her third Grammy — after beating out Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Harry Styles and Taylor Swift.
Lipa takes her winning form into “Can They Hear Us,” a new track which appears on the forthcoming soundtrack for Nabil Elderkin’s debut feature film, Gully.
With “Can They Hear Us,” Lipa takes us to a darker corner. On it, she sings: “Can they hear us?/ Blame it on my mind, blame it on delirious/ We all die, but right now I feel like livin’/ Can they hear us?”
The all-star album includes cuts from Ty Dolla $ign, Schoolboy Q, Miguel and Gary Clark, Jr., and is due to arrive June 4, the same day the film opens at theaters.
