Dua Lipa says London has played a key role in her success.
The 22-year-old singer has emerged as one of the world’s most talked-about pop stars over the last year, and Dua has admitted that the UK capital has played a huge part in her rise to the top of the industry.
The ‘New Rules’ hitmaker explained: “I was born and raised in London to Kosovan-Albanian parents in 1995.
“My father was a musician and music has paid a very big role in my life.”
Dua’s family relocated to Kosovo when she was a young woman.
But the chart-topping singer soon developed a desire to return to London, where she planned to pursue her musicial ambitions.
She told Le Parisien: “At the age of 11, my family and I moved to Pristina in Kosovo, and I guess it was living there that I really saw how much I loved to perform and how much I wanted to be in a place where everything was really happening, which for me was London.
