WHAT IT IS: To some, the songstress’ album is one of the most highly anticipated releases of 2017. She’s earned places on an array of lists like Rolling Stone’s “10 New Artists You Need To Know” and Entertainment Weekly’s “10 Artists Who Will Rule 2017.” With 2m in global sales, Dua’s singles have rapidly established her as a rising star. “Be the One” reached #1 on iTunes in over 19 European territories and Top 10 in 25 countries. The anthem has received more than 80m Spotify streams globally and more than 100m YouTube views. It’s no wonder why she’s been nominated for awards by the BBC and MTV Europe, and was a finalist for the prestigious BRIT Awards Critics’ Choice prize.
