First of all, happy new year! Somehow we managed to survive through the travesty of what was 2016, but that no longer matters, as that was last year, and the year is now 2017, which means, new year, new music.
This year, Dua Lipa kicks it all off with her promotional single ‘Thinkin ‘Bout You’ which has come off of her upcoming debut album, meant to be due out just next month. After the major hits ‘Hotter Than Hell,’ and ‘Blow Your Mind (Mwah)’, Dua Lipa is certainly an artist to keep an eye out for in the future.
The song became available on the 5th of January along with the pre-order of her self titled debut album.
What kicks off as a very mellow, chilled song, you don’t expect this to be a Dua Lipa song, what with previous bangers like ‘Hotter Than Hell’, and ‘Blow Your Mind (Mwah)’ however, it’s actually very good and suits her voice exceedingly well.
It has a very Joss Stone/Corinne Bailey Rae vibe to it, and it’s the sort of thing you’d listen to at 5 a.m. after being really drunk and wallowing in your feelings, but it sort of has this very warm feel to it.
I love how diverse it makes Dua Lipa as an artist, because it really shows off her voice very well, and shows that she can also write and record some great soulful stuff, as well as bringing the party.
Rate /10: 8
Is it worth buying? Yes
#1? As a promotional single, very doubtful
