Get fa­mil­iar with Dua Lipa, pop’s next great hope.

ELLE (Canada) - - Radar -

if you take Ari­ana’s vo­cal chops, Tay­lor’s real-life-to-rhyme-scheme song­writ­ing and Tove Lo’s en­ter-with-your-mid­dle-fin­ger-raised at­ti­tude and gloss it all with Katy’s candy-coated pro­duc­tion aes­thetic, you’ll come close-ish to Dua Lipa. This Koso­var-Al­ba­nian Brit is poised for a big 2017: Her sec­ond sin­gle, “Be the One,” is a hit in Aus­tralia and Europe, she’s on the short list for the BRIT Crit­ics’ Choice Award (pre­vi­ous win­ners in­clude the likes of Adele and Sam Smith) and she’s got a hugely an­tic­i­pated de­but al­bum com­ing out soon. We caught up with the 21-year-old at home in Lon­don dur­ing a rare quiet block in her cal­en­dar.
