Dua Lipa – British singer and songwriter
Dua Lipa was born on 22 August 1995, in London. Her parents are Albanians from Kosovo. The love for music Lipa got from her father, a singer Dukagjin Lipa. When Kosovo became independent, Dua’s family moved there from the UK. The singer’s name means “love” in Albanian, which is perfect for the music career. Lipa never had to think about a pseudonym.
When Dua was 14, she started recording cover versions of her favorite songs and uploading them to YouTube. In 2010, the young woman returned to London to proceed with her music career. Sometime later, she got a few modeling gigs. In 2013, she landed the leading role in the ad for the show "The X Factor".
In 2015, Dua signed a contract with Warner Music Group and started working on her debut studio album. The promotional single "New Love" came out in the summer. It didn’t enter the charts.
The second single “Be The One” came out in the fall and was much more successful than her first work. Lipa became popular in many European countries. The song topped charts in Poland, Belgium, and Slovakia. It reached high spots on the charts of many other countries, including Australian and New Zealand. Many fans tried to book Dua Lipa for their events and birthdays.
