It’s never too late to appreciate good music. So even though I am 2 weeks late, I have decided to share my review of Dua Lipa’s self-titled debut album, because…well why not?
After her debut year on the scene in 2016, Dua finally released her much anticipated first album on June 2nd. We were first introduced to her last summer with her single Hotter Than Hell she certainly set herself as one to watch as it peaked at number 15 on the UK charts. Her follow-up single Blow Your Mind (Mwah) was no different as it peaked at number 1 on the Billboard Dance Club charts.
With all of that and her feature on Martin Garrix’s Scared To Be Lonely, her anticipated debut album that was due to be released in September last year, was pushed back twice and finally saw the light on June 2nd.
Needless to say, it did not disappoint, as our review is 2 weeks late the album has already received a positive response from various critics and so it may come as no surprise that we are also loving it.
With a total of 17 tracks on the deluxe edition, Dua brings a range of various sounds to the album, all of which show off her vocals from opening track Genesis, through to the closing track Homesick featuring Coldplay’s Chris Martin and all the tracks in between. Her range of pop bangers like New Rules, Bad Together, Last Dance, to the more slower tracks like Garden, and the ballads like No Goodbyes and Homesick Dua really shines through the range of tracks.
She has already started her gigging circuit performing at the Capital Summer Time Ball which took place this week and the BBC Radio 1 Weekend that took place last month. She is due to hit the road towards the end of the year and we are sure anybody who is able to catch a show will undoubtedly not be disappointed as she brings these songs to life.
Overall I would give the album a 3.5/5. Let us know what do you think below!
