  • -Our next guest is a multi-platinum

  • two-time Grammy-winning artist

  • who's getting ready for a live virtual concert on November 27th

  • called Studio 2054.

  • Tickets are on sale right now at live-now.com.

  • Here she is, Dua Lipa.

  • Hi!

  • Oh, it's so great to see you. -Hi.

  • -Always a pleasure. How you doing?

  • -I'm great. Thank you so much.

  • I want to thank you, before we even get into the interview,

  • that we had our first virtual lip sync battle.

  • It was me versus Millie Bobby Brown.

  • And you were kind enough to fly all the way here to the States

  • to help me out with it. -I know, and I --

  • I brought my flexibility that day.

  • I loved it. So much fun.

  • When I saw it, I was like, "Oh, my God."

  • I was like, "This is -- It's such an honor." Thank you.

  • -Thank you for being a good sport with that.

  • Last time I think we talked,

  • we were talking about your new album,

  • and you were saying that

  • the new album's kind of dance-crying,

  • is your forte, or something --

  • and it made me laugh.

  • I go, "Dance-crying?"

  • And I totally get it now.

  • I listened to the album, and I go,

  • you nailed it, because you're like,

  • "Don't start caring about me now.

  • Walk away. Just don't start -- Don't --"

  • And then I go -- But it's like [Beatboxing]

  • And I go -- -But you want to keep moving.

  • You're crying in the club. -It's the best!

  • It is the best. I just loved it.

  • Anyways, you know I'm a big fan.

  • You're crushing it right now.

  • -Thank you so much.

  • -Dua, yesterday was the election --

  • It was election day here in the U.S.

  • And you live in London, where you were born.

  • But I like that you're still reaching out to all your fans

  • these past few months.

  • -To be really honest, you know, we're all living in one world,

  • and the world's just getting smaller and smaller.

  • And when you think about it, the responses in the U.S.

  • to climate change, to refugees, to the pandemic

  • affect the whole world.

  • And I think it's really important to understand

  • that we're all going through this together.

  • We all want to see change. We all want to see equality.

  • And I really believe that voting is so incredibly important,

  • that the young generation need to get out and vote,

  • and we need to make sure that our voices are heard.

  • And I know it's not the be-all and end-all of seeing change,

  • but I think it's incredibly, incredibly important,

  • and that's something that I champion a lot.

  • -Yeah. Well, you have a lot going on.

  • I want to talk about it.

  • First, you have a new single called "Fever."

  • -Yes. -It's --

  • I mean, I'm old, Dua,

  • so I can't say it slaps.

  • But I want to say it slaps!

  • -[ Laughs ]

  • -Who is the other person on the track?

  • I don't know if I --

  • -So, the other artist is a singer called Angèle

  • who I've been a fan of for such a long time,

  • and I was always meaning to get in the studio

  • and get to work on something together.

  • And this felt like the perfect song.

  • Yeah, it was just such an incredible experience,

  • and she's so lovely and so talented and so fun.

  • -I've never heard of her. It was great.

  • -And the video comes out on Friday, so...

  • -You released in March "Future Nostalgia."

  • That was the record.

  • Hit #1 in the U.K.

  • It was your first top-10 album in the U.S.

  • -Yes.

  • -Congrats on that.

  • And then you recently released a remix album

  • that I was like, "Wait, this is awesome,"

  • called "Club Future Nostalgia."

  • And it was a whole slew of cool people

  • that were featured on this.

  • It was Madonna, Missy Elliott, Mark Ronson, who I love,

  • Blackpink.

  • How did this come about,

  • and what was it like to work with all these people

  • on one album?

  • -It was such an incredible experience,

  • and to be honest, it wouldn't have happened

  • if it wasn't for everyone being in lockdown

  • and everyone being at home,

  • 'cause I don't think at any point,

  • I'd be able to get all these incredible people,

  • you know, to give me a moment of their time

  • to just, like, you know, put this record together.

  • And it was so fun, and I learned so much about dance music,

  • and it was really kind of creating a new experience.

  • And it was something that I can bring to the fans

  • and something a little bit different.

  • And it was quite fun to create something

  • that, as a project and as a body of work,

  • has to be listened all the way from the beginning to the end.

  • -I just thought the record worked.

  • Again, like, you keep crushing it.

  • You're doing this new thing November 27th,

  • which is great for us here in America,

  • because we're celebrating Thanksgiving on the 26th.

  • So whatever family is quarantined and at home,

  • that's another thing you can do the next night, Friday night,

  • November 27th. Studio 2054.

  • What can people expect from this?

  • -I'm really, really excited about this,

  • because not being able to go on tour this year

  • and, like, tour my album,

  • to get to create an experience that people can enjoy at home,

  • and it's more theater than a live show on tour.

  • It's something that I wouldn't get the opportunity to do

  • in any other circumstance, I guess.

  • And it's like a live music video.

  • It's kind of like my own TV show. I'm gonna have, like,

  • guest appearances and guest performers,

  • and I kind of get to do your job a little bit for the night,

  • which seems really fun.

  • -You know, as always, you're going to nail it,

  • and any time you need a dance partner, buddy,

  • you know I'll fly you back to the States,

  • and we'll do another -- -I'll call you.

  • -Thank you so much, yeah.

  • We need things like this right now.

  • Everyone, be sure to check this out. November 27th.

  • Studio 2054. Dua Lipa, everybody.

  • Tickets are on sale right now at live-now.com.

-Our next guest is a multi-platinum
