    Dua Lipa has been teasing a new album for weeks now on Instagram after archiving all of her posts, changing her profile picture, and posting snippets of a new song that quickly got deleted. Now the first single “Houdini” has been announced.

    Are you hyped? Dua Lipa’s last album was one of the best albums of that year. @Michael Myers @Marsh @jankland

    Can’t wait to see how/if she evolves her sound and song topics. I wonder if the sound will be more throwbacks or if it will be something more modern. Either way I just heard her song “Physical” yesterday and it still goes hard. I also can’t wait for the music videos since Dua always has nice music videos and she is stunning

    I prefer the more retro sound with a modern touch over the computerized (dj) s--- or trap music tbh. Curious 4 the single!

    Hallucinate, levitating, love again, physical, future nostalgia (the song) we're good >>>>

    Yeah at first I thought it sounded too much like her previous album but then it grew on me and I really like it. And if that’s what she’s doing for a soundtrack song, I can’t wait to see what she does for her actual album

    Yeah I agree I thought it sounded uninspired at first, but after hearing it a few times I realised it’s catchy as h---.

    https://www.forbes.com/sites/monica...m-and-her-new-single-houdini/?sh=5a5e0e5c3259

    A few takeaways from this Forbes article about the album:
    • It will be more personal and have a lyrical theme of some sort
    • It will be different sonically, but not enough to alienate her fanbase
    • Dua worked with Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker and producers from her last album
    • It will be inspired by 1970s-era psychedelia
    • It will be released in 2024

    I've only listened to a handful of her songs more than once but so far my favorites are Break My Heart and Future Nostalgia. If the new album has at least one song on their level I'll officially be a fan.

    “Break My Heart” and “Future Nostalgia” were highlights for sure. This is only Dua’s third album so it’s kind of hard to predict what the quality level will be. Her first album was mostly mediocre with a few good songs, but she has improved a lot since then and knocked it out of the park with her Future Nostalgia album. She also went from not being able to dance at all to doing choreographed performances. Dua is definitely putting in a lot of effort. Here’s hoping she continues the upward trajectory.

    Oh then she's definitely a natural. Just look at her go:

    "Break My Heart" is a classic, but it's simply not complete without this video.
