Dua Lipa has confirmed she’s penned a track with Chris Martin.
The ‘Scared To Be Lonely’ hitmaker teased on Twitter earlier this week that she had exciting news to share soon and she made her big reveal at her O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire show on Thursday night.
As well as confirming her collaboration with the Coldplay frontman, Dua – who has previously teamed up with super-DJ Martin Garrix – admitted it felt “crazy” to be singing to a sold out Empire and reminded fans that her new single, ‘Lost In Your Light’, is due out next week.
The 21-year-old star told the crowd: “So some of you know, some of you mght not know. My new single comes out next Friday, it features Miguel, I really hope you guys like it.
Dua has always been solely focused on making it in the music industry and envisioned chart success early on, because she feels she would “lose sight of what she really wanted” if she hadn’t had just the one goal.
She said: “I never had a plan B. Always set your intentions on your goal and just go for it. The second you feel like you have something to fall back on, you’ll kind of lose sight of what you really want.
“That was something that was always really important to me, to never lose sight of my goal. And to never stop working. Just when you think that you’ve made it, there’s always something else and you’ve got to keep going. If you want to be great at what you do, there’s a lot more to be done.”
And the 21-year-old singer feels her new album will help her make room for more “memories”.
She previously told Teen Vogue magazine:: “I feel [with] this album, I’ve been holding onto so many memories and so many things that I’ve been singing about over and over.
“Stuff like ‘Hotter Than Hell’ or ‘New Love,’ – these are songs that just really take me so far back, and I’m ready to put them out in the world and let go of them. Now, once this album is out, there’s room for new memories, new things to happen.”
We’re excited to hear what Dua and Chris came up with in the studio but before then, we’ll look forward to her new single and album
