    4th single (fun for Europe) incoming



    some of her dancers have been hinting filming a music video today, which could be her J Balvin collab or this

    There will be a guest feature on the single edit (necessary for it to get on lots of playlists now it's a few months old) - a "legacy artist". Rumours are it might be Kylie :o as yet unconfirmed, it'll probably be Lionel Richie or Nile Rodgers or something :eyes:

    Probably just a shady way of announcing the long-awaited Rita Ora duet...

    Some are saying it might be Madame X because she only follows a few people on IG but raised some questions when she started following Queen Lipa and apparently she's been name-dropping her this year when they ask what she's listening to these days :confused:

    or it could be Beyonce but I highly doubt it cause she doesn't do FUN anymore.

    Beyonce would be my worst nightmare. It would completely pollute the song. She's too pretentious to be on a straightforward pop track.

    Madonna would be great, as long as she sticks to good choreography and actually just has FUN instead of trying to be 'sexy'.

    Not Madonna please.

    I can't handle her cut and paste CROX existing next to Dua's heavenly vocal performance.

    "Legacy artist" can only mean Mel B

    I mean she's on crutches right now, so not sure choreography is the order of the day. I love Madge more than anything, but she's chart poison, so would be a mistake for Dua at the moment.

    As if Madonna would allow anything to go out referring to her as a legacy artist! :D

    Anyway, good single choice. I do wish it had an extra "dance my arse off" section at the end though. It feels like it should be repeated.

    Not the single I’d have chosen but she could probably score a hit with anything, even Good In Bed, at the moment. I do like it though. I wouldn’t mind it being Madonna though she’ll unfollow her if she catches wind of “legacy artist”.

    Apparently the featured artist really is Madonna :o

    I'm still not sure how I feel about that

    It has the potential to be iconic, or a total grotesque mess.

    Dua needs to keep an eye on her.

    Dua really doesn’t need Madge right now

    I hope it’s not a cringe

    Well, clearly this proposed collaboration would make perfect business sense for Madonna when pitched to her by management team but I actually hope it she doesn't do it. Madame X was such a refreshing leftfield turn and I want her to continue down that road rather than trying to get a 'hit' by attaching herself to Dua Lipa.

    Conversely, apart from this being a possible once in a lifetime chance to work with one of your idols, I can't see why Dua Lipa would want to do it either.
