Dua Lipa has released the single ‘Hallucinate’; with its propulsive bassline and shimmering synths, ‘Hallucinate’ transports listeners back to the 90’s. Produced by SG Lewis & Stuart Price, it’s the most club-ready track on the number one selling album ‘Future Nostalgia’. The album also includes the Number 1 global hit single ‘Don’t Start Now’, and her smash single ‘Physical’ and the recent hit ‘Break My Heart’.
The song also comes with an amazing video. Inspired by the Studio 54 aesthetic and cartoons from multiple iconic eras, the video is an animation extravaganza. Directed by The Mill’s Lisha Tan, who is well known for her illustration and animation style, the film is packed with eclectic and fun characters, including a fully animated cartoon Dua Lipa.
Since the release of her first single in 2015, Dua Lipa has become one of the music world’s hottest young artists. Her eponymous debut album has eclipsed 5 million sales worldwide, with single sales reaching 70 million and the video for her break-out hit “New Rules” (“the song that changed my life,” she says), made her the youngest female solo artist to reach one billion views on YouTube. She made BRIT Award history in 2018 as the first female artist to pick up five nominations, with two wins for British Breakthrough Act and British Female Solo Artist. She then went on to receive two Grammy awards for Best New Artist and Best Dance Recording for “Electricity,” her collaboration with Silk City the following year. At the end of 2019, Dua performed her Number 1 global hit single ‘Don’t Start Now’ at the MTV EMAs, ARIAs, AMA’s and MAMA’s in the lead up to the release of her latest album, Future Nostalgia. Her sophomore record surpassed 294 million streams in its first week and has now exceeded 1 billion streams on Spotify across all of its tracks, establishing Dua Lipa as the most listened to British artist on Spotify globally and the most listened to female artist on the platform. Future Nostalgia features 3 top 10 hit singles ‘Don’t Start Now’, ‘Physical’ and the recent hit ‘Break My Heart’ and also holds the record for the most streamed album in a single day by any British female artist and also had the longest run of 3 tracks in the top 10 by a female artist since 1955.
