Dua Lipa Returns With A Monster New Hit ‘Houdini’

She’s back! Pop superstar Dua Lipa is back with new music this week as she officially embarks on a new musical chapter. The star returns with ‘Houdini’ – the highly anticipated track introducing the beginning of a new chapter following her 2020 smash ‘Future Nostalgia’.

‘Houdini’ kickstarts the narrative thread that weaves its way through Dua’s upcoming project. Dua notes that ‘Houdini’, “embodies that 4 a.m. feeling when the night is coming to a close and you’re a bit sweaty, but you just don’t want the party to end.” The official music video, directed by Manu Cossu with cinematographer André Chemetoff, sees Dua post-rehearsal in a dance hall, revising her choreography under fluorescent lights. The lights reflect in the room’s mirrors, creating an optical illusion as the energy begins to swell.

“This track represents the most light and freeing parts of my singledom,” says Dua. “’Houdini’ is very tongue in cheek, exploring the idea of whether someone is really worth my while or if I’ll ghost them in the end. You never know where something may take you, that’s the beauty of being open to whatever life throws your way. I’m looking forward to sharing that feeling of defiant bliss with my fans.”

‘Houdini’ was written by Lipa, along with Caroline Ailin, Danny L. Harle, Tobias Jesso Jr., and Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker, a group who served as core collaborators throughout the project, and was produced by Parker and Harle. “A lot of this album was written in those joyous moments of absolute chaos and how I moved through the world with lightness and optimism of whatever the outcome may be,” says Dua.
