She went to the same school Amy Winehouse attended

It was the Sylvia Young Theatre School in Marylebone, London. Several other successful artists are alumni: Rita Ora, Tom Fletcher, and Little Mix’s Jesy Nelson among them.

 She thought playing basketball would help her grow. As a child Dua was really short and took up basketball to try and make her taller. “I thought it would help me grow but it didn’t,” she says. “The second I quit, I did grow.”

Musical talent runs in the family. Her own dad, Duakgjin Lipa, was in an Albanian rock band and she grew up listening to his music – she’s said he was one of her main influences.

After working as a model, she signed with Warner Music Group in 2015 and released her eponymous debut album in 2017. The album peaked at number three on the UK Albums Chart, and yielded nine singles, including “Be the One” and “IDGAF”, and the UK number-one single “New Rules”, which also peaked at number six in the US. In 2018, Lipa won the Brit Awards for British Female Solo Artist and British Breakthrough Act.

Released in April 2018, the single “One Kiss” with Calvin Harris peaked at number one in the UK and became the longest-running number-one single for a female artist in 2018. It won her the 2019 Brit Award for Song of the Year. In 2019, she was also awarded the Grammy Award for Best New Artist, and “Electricity“, a collaboration with Silk City, won her the Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording. The success of the singles helped her self-titled album become one of the most-streamed albums on Spotify and achieve platinum certifications. Her second studio album, Future Nostalgia, was released in March 2020 to critical acclaim, earning Lipa six Grammy nominations, including Album of the Year
