Now this song is getting some well deserved megahype, time for me to create a thread about one of my favourite songs of the year! Dua Lipa was born in London and her parents are ethnic Albanians who were from Pristina, the capital of Kosovo - Dua reportedly moved back to Pristina for a couple of years in her early teens. We all know Albanians and Kosovans are amazing, look no further than several Albanian Eurovision entrants, Bebe Rexha and Rita Ora! heart.gif

I can guarantee that the majority of you will have already known Dua for a couple of years now, however you probably won't know why. She was the star of the advert for the 2013 series of X Factor! When I first saw the advert I loved her voice and immediately remember google searching her to find out her name.



Anyway, Dua released 'New Love' a few months ago and is what I assume is now being called a buzz single. It wasn't totally to my cup of tea, however I saw loads of potential in her with that song. And I knew I remembered her name from somewhere, and after a quick Google I realised it was the girl from the X Factor advert I loved many months ago!



But then just over a month ago, Dua debuted her latest single 'Be The One' which is one of the best pop songs of the year. It feels so fresh, a few tropical vibes in a fantastic pop production and you can't help but clap along to the chorus. What a tune! Dua has now been nominated for BBC Sound of 2016 and today 'Be The One' was Radio 1's Track of the Day and she has already zoomed up into the iTunes top 50! ohmy.gif I really hope Dua does well in BBC Sound of as I think with regular airplay, 'Be The One' is a future top 10 hit at least.

This is nearly top 10 on German iTunes! ohmy.gif heart.gif

Such a shame she was overlooked in the BBC Sound of poll, with the hype of doing well in that this could've been at least a top 40 hit I think!

Looks like this is heading for a re-release, Dua seems to be teasing a new music video featuring Ansel Elgort (The Fault In Our Stars, Divergent) on social media. I've been expecting this to happen at some point and I think it is the right decision!

This is still easily her best song (her releases have just gotten progressively worse, Blow Your Mind was crap), I really hope it can at least make the top 40 this time!

This is actually my least favourite of her singles to date, I'd have rather seen a 'Last Dance' re-release, but I guess this was inevitable. It's not a bad song, it just lacks the punch that her other singles have imo!

Dua performed this on Xtra Factor so that all but confirms this is indeed her new single!

Oh this is going to feel weird being a hit considering most of Buzzjack has already loved it for a year :,) Still a good choice, nowhere near the brilliant Blow Your Mind [Mwah!] though.

Isn't this already available to download? I can't imagine it being a hit then really.

It is, but it's not really too different to any other OA/OS release - it just won't get a headstart with the initial boost of the fanbase buys like when Hotter Than Hell and Blow Your Mind got into the 20s on iTunes. But they both dropped out of the top 50 before airplay got going I think so I don't think already being available will be detrimental as long as it gets the same airplay support as her previous two singles have had.

I think she would have better off with something new to launch the album really. Her fans are already aware of this and I don't think this will grab people like we think it will sad.gif. When I saw her live it sounded like she had a lot of potential hit singles as well.

I wonder if Europe will get a new single while we are trying with Be The One again, I'll be intrigued to see how good it is if so and whether they've made a mistake here.
