She's well-liked round these parts iirc? Surprising to find there's not already a thread.

Shes just gone to number 1 in the UK and that is an amazing thing indeed

I've heard some other songs of hers I liked. This is not one of them.

I feel like they've spent a lot of money and time building her up as a popstar and New Rules being a chart-topper is a reward for length of service, it's good but it's far from the best thing with her name on it. I really like the album but it loses points for relegating Last Dance to bonus track status.

is the album good? i liked be the one 2 years ago but new rules does nothing for me and i don't remember much of any of the singles in-between

Yeah I've gone back to this a lot more than I expected I would - so much personality and presence in her voice. Compared to something like the utterly bland Zara Larsson album, it's a model of what pop can actually be with a bit of ambition and focus

brief shout out to the "new rules" and "lost in your light" music videos for both being extremely good. i love how "lost in your light" totally embodies what it's like to listen to the song

also pop album of the year

yeah this album is so good

I know this is unfair but Bill Maher prevents me from getting into "new rules" :(

Simon H., Wednesday, 29 November 2017 16:47 (eight months ago) Permalink

why would you let that happen

ToddBonzalez (BradNelson), Wednesday, 29 November 2017 17:05 (eight months ago) Permalink

new rules is great, i think will be a top ten single (and maybe my token pop track) this year for me.

"new rules" is a becky anthem i can get behind.

god every time i hear "lost in your light" i play it five times in a row

ToddBonzalez (BradNelson), Wednesday, 29 November 2017 18:21 (eight months ago) Permalink

really (and unfortunately) such a miracle that this album was not only finally released but also turned out to be stupendous

"lost in your light" has been a stalwart on my jogging playlists this year. the way she sings "i wanna stay riiiiiiiiiiight here all night baby" at the beginning of the final chorus is such a moment

Really glad I clicked on this thread. It has made me revisit an album which I dismissed when I first heard it back in June. I must have watched the Lost In Your Light video 20 times in the last 24 hours. It could well end up being my song of the year. I'm now just taking it in turns to play this album and the new Miguel.

delivery of the year: miguel singing “vivid, vivid”

Ya'll aware of this, right? "New Rules" done mid-80's Italo. Somehow it really works!

I've also come around on the Freedo remix on the single.

album is p good thx for the tip. the drop into the chorus of 'new rules' is my favourite musical moment of the year; i feel dumb the extent to which it gets me every single time

lol, those drums are pretty tricky

I'm fully obsessed with her album now. Everything sounds so effortless which is nice compared to some of the other big pop records of the year that sound like way too much hard work.

Haven't heard much about this around here. Already #1 in the UK charts.

daavid, Tuesday, 24 April 2018 21:06 (three months ago) Permalink

I'm still undecided about it but I think it's a step up from IDGAF. Opinions?

daavid, Tuesday, 24 April 2018 21:07 (three months ago) Permalink

As a regular American Top 40 listener it’s very refreshing to have some played-straight, classy, four-on-the-floor house music back on the radio. The first time it came on I briefly thought I’d tuned the station to WBLS by mistake. Don’t know that Dua Lipa feels particularly vital to the success of the record, but by the same measure she acquits herself well.

Man, Calvin Harris is everywhere right now...

i think it's pretty good! a little forgettable, but serviceable for sure

i don't hear too much calvin harris where i am so i'll accept this small dose...

i like this a lot better than his fake random access memories songs. IDGAF slander is also insane
