SINGER

Lipa has al­ready con­quered Europe, but 2018 was the year when the pop singer fi­nally made it in Amer­ica. The English vo­cal­ist, who’s signed to Warner Bros. Records in the U.S. and man­aged by Lon­don-based TAP, cracked the ra­dio code with two solo smashes (“New Rules” and “IDGAF”) and one strong fea­tured guest turn on Calvin Harris’ sultry “One Kiss.” Although “New Rules” was re­leased last fall, it wasn’t un­til Jan­uary that Lipa made the Top 10 in the States. Six months later, the tune was cer­ti­fied triple-plat­inum. “IDGAF,” mean­while, has racked up over half a bil­lion Spo­tify streams. Ex­pect more in the way of hits on the 23-year-old’s fol­low-up al­bum, due out in 2019, on which she’s work­ing with Swedish hit­maker Max Martin. In the mean­time, look for the de­but of Lipa’s an­tic­i­pated cloth­ing col­lab­o­ra­tion with H&m-owned brand /Ny­den, ex­pected this win­ter.
