About Dua Lipa

Dua Lipa was born on 22 August 1995 in Westminster, London. She is daughter of Dukagjin Lipa and Anesa Lipa. She has two siblings a younger sister and a younger brother.

Lipa’s father is a marketing manager who is also lead vocalist in a Kosovan rock band, Oda. Her mother works in tourism.

Her parents are originally from Kosovo but left Pristina in 1992. Her father Dukagjin is the son of historian Seit Lipa who was the head of the Kosovo Institute of History from 1990 to 1995.

.

Dua Lipa attended Sylvia Young Theatre School part-time before moving to Kosovo with her family in 2006 when her father had been offered a job. There she attended the Mileniumi i Tretë school in Pristina, and became a fan of hip hop artists, which would later influence her music style.

Her first name means “love” in Albanian. Lipa explained “Now I’m proud of it. Now I am. But when I was growing up, all I wanted was to be called Hannah, Sarah, Ella… anything normal. Because with Dua you had to explain: I’m from Kosovo.”

.

At the age of 14, Lipa began posting covers of her favourite songs by artists such as Pink and Nelly Furtado on YouTube.

At the age of 15, she moved back to London with aspirations of becoming a singer. Lipa lived with a friend and studied at Parliament Hill School, returning to the Sylvia Young Theatre School on Saturdays.

In order to earn money for music sessions, Lipa had different jobs, such as hostessing restaurants and nightclubs.

She began working as a model for the online catalogue ASOS Marketplace when she was 16, with the goal of meeting people who could help her with her music career.

However, she left after a manager told her to lose weight. In 2013, she starred in a television advertisement for The X Factor.

.

After working as a model, she signed with Warner Music Group in 2015 and released her eponymous debut album in 2017.

The album reached number three on the UK Albums Chart, and yielded seven singles, including “Be the One” and “IDGAF”, and the UK number-one single “New Rules”, which also reached 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, reached 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 also received the Grammy Award for Best New Artist, and “Electricity”, a duet 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.
