Dua Lipa felt so confident in new video
Dua Lipa was "the most confident she’s ever felt" in the video for latest single ‘Electricity’.
In the promo, the 23-year-old singer is seen dancing around a New York City loft apartment during the Northeast power blackout of 2003 wearing just a cropped white t-shirt and red hot pants, and although she wasn’t wearing many clothes Dua "didn’t care what she looked like".
Speaking on the Billboard Pop Shop Podcast, she said: "It was probably the most confident I’ve ever felt. It was one of those where I was in a room of so many people, and for once, I didn’t care what I looked like or what I was doing or how I was dancing.
"I was just kind of moving and going crazy and feeling it just for what it was, it was just really refreshing to be able to do that.
"There were some parts which was choreographed, but all the jumping and the dancing, everybody was like, ‘Just go for it, just do whatever you want,’ and I think that feeling of not holding back was really important for me to get to experience that."
The ‘New Rules’ hitmaker has been busy working hard on her second album, and she admits that although her new project will have the same pop vibes as her self-titled debut, her new record is more experimental in places.
She spilled: "I’ve been writing quite a bit, and I feel really good about it.
"It feels like a good step into new territory. It’s still pop because that’s what I love and I find my home there, but it’s different sounds and has some like nostalgic feels and a bit experimental."
Dua previously revealed that she has been listening to Prince and Outkast for inspiration for her follow-up LP, as well as her favourite girl bands such as the Spice Girls and the Pussycat Dolls.
She said: "It’s been really exciting so far and the process has been a lot easier than the first album because I know a lot more what I want from this album. When I was growing up I loved the Spice Girls obviously. I love Pussycat Dolls. I think Haim are amazing. And, oh my gosh, Destiny’s Child."
