“DL3”: a raw and relaxed album

Dua Lipa approaches her new album in a raw and relaxed way, but she nevertheless worked on it with great precision. Her collaborators did not hesitate to describe her as “ meticulous editor “. Dua Lipa has rewritten her texts multiple times. “ I don’t think there’s a single song on this album that I haven’t gone back to and rewritten, perfected, changed, reworked a little more and deepened to see if we could go further..”, explains Dua Lipa to the magazine.

A work motivated by its desire to satisfy its audience. “ I really care about the fans’ reaction “, recognizes the 28-year-old singer before adding, “ I’d be lying if I said I didn’t care what the critics think. When you put your heart and soul into something, you want people to collectively say, “Oh, that’s changed sonically, that’s something different. “. Can’t wait to find out what she has in store for us.
