This pop-su­per­star built her ca­reer from the ground up, churn­ing out catchy orig­i­nal songs and work­ing her hard­est. Un­teth­ered and de­ter­mined to reach the top, Dua Lipa takes care to cre­ate ma­te­rial that is mean­ing­ful and re­lat­able. With con­tem­po­rary synth-pop beats, stylised rhythms, and hon­est- toa-fault lyrics, she con­veys a mes­sage that women should come to­gether, be em­pow­ered, and cel­e­brate amidst life’s tri­als and tribu­la­tions. Her break­out hits “Blow Your Mind,” “Be the One,” “Hot­ter Than Hell,” “New Rules,” and “IDGAF” soon be­came an­thems for ev­ery wo­man re­cov­er­ing and moving on from past re­la­tion­ships.

Last Jan­uary, she scored a coup at the Bri­tish Awards as the first fe­male to be nom­i­nated five times as well as to win two of them: the Fe­male Solo Artist and the Break­through Act. To her fans, the 22-year-old says, “I want to thank ev­ery sin­gle fe­male that has been on this stage be­fore me and has given girls like me a place to be in­spired by, and some­one to look up to, and al­low us to dream. Here’s to more women on th­ese stages and tak­ing over the world.” Her lat­est col­lab­o­ra­tion with Calvin Har­ris “One Kiss” stayed at num­ber one for seven con­sec­u­tive weeks. Don’t miss her con­cert on 14 Septem­ber at the MOA Arena, Pasay City.
