Dua Lipa sat down with Elle Magazine for a wide ranging interview that covers everything from her upbringing to her feminism to dealing with fame in the age of social media.
She also discussed her next album, which is one of the most anticipated second albums in recent memory, but Dua isn’t worried about a sophomore slump.
She says, "I don’t want to make it scary for myself; there’s no point. As a new artist, you’re competing with people who are years and albums ahead of you, way more successful. It’s tough. But I have a lot more confidence going into a room and saying what I want. You can’t be gone for too long. You have to keep putting music out. Some things will work, some won’t. I’m just going to make music I’m proud of that represents who I am. I want my fans to know they backed the right horse."
Dua also says it will tackle a mixture of topics: Growing up as a girl, let downs, enjoying life and all songs you can sing along to.
As far as a timeline, she hopes to put it out later this year or by early 2020 at the latest.
