Dua Lipa (Warner Bros.)
11/24/16

WHAT IT IS: “What struck us about Dua Lipa, long before we met her, was how distinctive her voice was and that she clearly had writing skills. She had a demo of ‘Hotter Than Hell,’ which felt like a strong record even then, and once we met her, we got a sense of her drive and ambition, as well as her look and personality, and we were sold,” says Warner Bros. U.K. President Phil Christie. So far, she’s got 150m+ global streams, 6.2m+ monthly Spotify listeners and more than half a million in U.K. singles sales. She’s toured extensively and enjoyed huge international success with “Be the One,” which reached #1 on iTunes in 15 countries and Top 5 in 43 countries. Her profile is growing in the U.S. and “Blow Your Mind (Mwah)” is currently Top 40 at Pop radio and has just entered the Hot 100 as the highest new entry at #72. Dua, who was included in the BBC Sound Poll 2016, has already graced the covers of Hunger and Vogue supplement, and her team is now broadening her press profile out to tabloids and bigger content/documentary pieces. She’s managed by Ben Mawson at Tap Management.
