In a sequence filmed for BBC Radio 1the singer and Greg James of the station take to the streets of London to find someone ” who may not be a Dua Lipa fan » and give him the gift of the world premiere of “ Houdini “.

The duo then spots Richard, an older man whose work day is about to be turned upside down. Richard admits that he “ heard » from her, but he doesn’t know her music.

With that, Dua Lipa gives her phone to Richard so he can be the first to listen “ Houdini ”, and the employees of BBC Radio 1 celebrate the event with a congratulatory banner.
