From being a model, to posting YouTube covers, Dua Lipa has become a star. She’s well known for her Billboard hit songs like “New Rules” and “Blow Your Mind”. The 5-time Brit award winning singer is releasing new songs left and right. She even won the NME (New Musical Express) award for the best new artist of 2017!


You may have just recently found out about her, but believe it or not, she’s been in the singing business for a few years. In 2009, she began posting covers to YouTube. That really helped her become successful. At just 19 years old, she signed with Warner Music Group and released her first song, called “Thinkin’ Bout You”.


But, before all of this crazy fame, Dua was just a regular girl. She was born on August 22, 1995 in London, England. Her name means “love” in Albanian. Her father was in the band ODA which inspired Dua to become a musician too. Following in her father’s footsteps, she started singing at age 14.


Dua has accomplished so much! From YouTube covers, to being #1 on the top charts! YouTube is truly an amazing thing in her eyes. It’s what made her famous! If Those 8.6 million YouTube fans continue to support her, she definitely has a bright future ahead of her!
