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.

Ⓓⓡ. (Johnny Fever), Saturday, 19 August 2017 13:50 (four years ago) link

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.

boxedjoy, Saturday, 19 August 2017 15:22 (four years ago) link

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

ufo, Saturday, 19 August 2017 15:28 (four years ago) link

i like "be the one" but wasn't taken by anything else i've heard so far

the "new rules" vid is cute tho! love the colored robes

ToddBonzalez (BradNelson), Monday, 9 October 2017 15:53 (four years ago) link

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

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

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

monotony, Wednesday, 29 November 2017 22:16 (four years ago) link

"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

monotony, Wednesday, 29 November 2017 22:18 (four years ago) link

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.

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.

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 years ago) link

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.

^I love this, though I can't shake the suspicion that the pitch-shifted bit in the chorus was an attempt to make Dua's voice sound as much like Cher's as possible after Cher declined an invitation to guest on the track

her new single 'Want To' is much weaker imho

i like Electricity a lot, probably my favourite single of hers. i wish the outro just jammed on like that for longer though, it feels like there's a whole other song there waiting to be unearthed. interesting that Romy from the xx has a writing credit on it. i'm very curious about the Blackpink collab that's coming up too

"This was my favourite pop star mag cover for some time, I mean I know it's GQ and everything but the combination of her and 'A billion people can't be wrong' with 'Could Jacob Rees-Mogg get any worse?' is pretty hard to top"

I'm really bothered by the way that the question mark at the end of that line pushes past the right border of the text. It looks wrong.

For all those people reading this in 2027, when the image is gone, there was originally a picture of the front cover of the British edition of GQ magazine, May 2018. All of the headlines on the right were right-aligned to a rigid border but the question mark in the last headline, "Could Jacob Rees-Mogg get any worse?", extended over the edge of the border, and in 2019 it bothered me.

In 2027 you will walk through a miniature recreation of London and see a miniature version of yourself.

some of the remixes are ok i guess but they're all at least second-tier for the artists in question imo. the fingers remix is nice but it's hard for me to ignore how his chords clash with the key of the vocal. worst in that regard is the paul woolford remix, just like ... wtf was he thinking? that doesn't work for me on any level. it just seems like there was no dialogue at all between dua lipa or her songwriters and the remixers - just all on separate islands and it sounds totally phoned in as a result, less than the sum of the parts. there must have just been too many people involved without anyone making overall creative decisions and like covid and everything, idk.

read this thread, expected the worse re the Blessed Madonna mixtape version.
instead, like a proper cut-n-paste sample heavy mixtape, i bloody love it.
so much fun.
the label must have had a lot of fun clearing/paying for samples.
cant recall the last time i heard a major release with so many samples.
not heard the album proper yet, but damn, best £2 i have spent in a long time.

yeah, it's bloody brilliant.
still don't get the hate the re mixtape as it's exactly what i'd expect/want from a dj mixtape.
celeb phone ins, samples, and quick cut-n-paste drops of remixes.
i think it's a brilliant 50 mins of pop/dance perfection.

given the rather boring megamix that girls aloud put out for their Tangled Up album release, then i cant help but throw a lot of love to Dupa for the effort put in by all concerned.
