Dua Lipa is the gift that keeps on giving…
It’s evidently not enough that Dua Legend already blessed our unworthy ears with her self-titled debut LP, one of the best pop albums of last year. Or that she’s promised a sophomore follow-up is coming next year. Or that she’s spent the last year working her butt off to make sure mainstream America remembered her name. Well, unless you’re Wendy Williams. Dula Peep anyone?!?
No. She had to give us even more! Specifically, Dua Lipa – Complete Edition, the official re-release of her critically acclaimed debut, released officially today (October 19). It includes her collaborations with Martin Garrix (“Scared to Be Lonely“), Sean Paul (“No Lie“), Calvin Harris (“One Kiss“) and her most recent with Silk City (Mark Ronson and Diplo) called “Electricity,” which is currently #27 on Billboard’s Mainstream Top 40 chart.
Not only does the album include her hit collaborations, but also two finished “demos” from the early Dua Lipa sessions (“Want To” and “Running“), and most importantly, “Kiss and Make Up” – Dua‘s new collab with the popular K-pop girl group BLACKPINK!
The new song is a vibrant, rhythmic electro-pop number about trying to “Kiss and Make Up” before a relationship ends in break up. “Touch me like you touch nobody/ Put your hands all up on me/ Tired of hearing sorry/ Kiss and make, kiss, kiss and make up…,” Dua chants on the infectious hook. “How about we leave this party?/ ‘Cause all I want is you up on me/ Tired of hearing sorry/ Kiss and make, kiss, kiss and make up.”
It’s an instant throb that perfectly marries Dua‘s huskier tone with the four members of BLACKPINK — Jisoo, Rosé, Lisa, and Jennie — as they weave Korean and English for a bilingual spectacular. DUA FOR PRESIDENT!
