Upcoming artist Dua Lipa shares some of her favourite tracks. According to Dua, this is a playlist that will “make old ladies give you the #sideeye”.
Growing up, Londoner Dua was influenced by her musician father’s broad and eclectic music taste which ranged from Tupac to Action Bronson, David Bowie and Bob Dylan to Alt J. At 15 she left home to live with friends and surrounded herself with the process of making music.
Now 19, Dua has just released her first video for her new track “New Love”. The song was produced by Emile Haynie (Lana Del Rey, FKA Twigs), and Andrew Wyatt (Miike Snow) which can be recognised in the hypnotic backing beats. Dua’s standout vocals are layered over the chilled backing which makes for a mesmerizing track. Below, Dua shares her playlist with Wonderland featuring Asap Ferg and Anderson Paak.
“Work REMIX” – Asap Ferg ft. Asap Rocky, French Montana, Trinidad James & Schoolboy Q
When the song first came out you know you blasted it through your headphones on the tube making people take a second look at you.
“So High” – Doja Cat
The flow in this is so good! As much as I love pretty much all of the remixes to this song nothing beats the original.
“I Do It” – Big Sean
I went to a Big Sean gig as a friends +1 a couple years ago and I was obssessed with this song for such a long time after that, that now I know the whole rap off by heart.
“10 Bands” – Drake
Makes me feel like i’m riding through the 6 with my woes..
“Don’t Waste My Time” – Krept and Konan
Gets you gassed… standard.
“Genocide” – Dr Dre ft. Kendrick Lamar, Marsha Ambrosius & Candice Pill
Dre’s new album bangs. There’s a song for every playlist in this album.
“Drugs” – Anderson Paak
Anderson Paak is getting bigger and bigger by the day. I fell in love with this song when a producer in the studio played me the remix version by DK the Punisher and I had to find the original.
“A Tale of 2 Citiez” – J Cole
“Nice watch run it”. That drop gets me so excited I dont know how to put it into words.
“Shutdown” – Skepta
Glastonbury memories in a sweaty tent with the crew.
“King Kunta” – Kendrick Lamar
On repeat always. Repeat repeat repeat! Best song and the video to this is insane.
