    this deserves its own thread. she really has delivered again, this is just so much fun *.*



    i'm going to pretend the new rules aping video never happened and she's still the lovely super fresh, super cool girl from thinking of you.

    Love this! Hope a proper big hit, “Fine line” and “Ring ring” should have been HUGE

    It seems like this is going to be the one that is her big breakthrough. Number 7 this week.

    I think it is very good and I am pleased, but it's interesting - I wonder why this is apparently connecting so much more than her equally excellent singles from last year.

    the last one wasn't as great. but Fine Line was really good and it did stick around a long time didn't it?

    I like this a lot but it does feel a touch dated in terms of having that tropi bop sound. it's like a track from Dua's debut

    it's like 3 years old but I would not be mad if they re-released this next - it's so good

    this is looking like becoming her big breakout hit everywhere - it's already top 30 on global Spotify and doing good numbers in the US. It's grown on me a lot.

    I absolutely love this, and was also addicted to Fine Line.

    @ameraal ahead of the curve as ever. :disco:

    Love this too, should be big - it's so Dua Lipa

    Also, I may have been living under a rock, but had no idea she was Neneh Cherries daughter :o

    She does seem wonderful, though you would hope that the daughter of Neneh Cherry had rather more about her than dead eyed Dua.

    I am very pleased to see Mabel carrying on the fantastic legacy of her Mother.

    I made it sound like she’s dead, sorry.

    You know what I mean.

    ikr. i guess they're pretty old news at this point but it's a shame as they're among her finest moments so far.

    I suppose four years old is a bit much, and in terms of sound My Boy My Town in particular is a bit different to her more recent stuff. Floppy One Shot didn't make the deluxe singles mop up either.

    Obsessed with this three months later

    I love the video too. The choreo is great and she’s a lot more charismatic than someone else I could mention

    Plus her Dad made One Touch :disco:
