Since releasing her first single, “Be the One,” in 2015, Lipa has emerged as one of pop music’s strongest new voices, thanks to a series of bold, stadium-ready girl-power anthems. In “Blow Your Mind (Mwah),” Lipa rebukes a would-be lover who doesn’t see her strengths (“If you don’t like the way I talk, then why am I on your mind?”); in “IDGAF,” she dismisses a cheating ex who wants her back (“I’m too busy for your business/ Go find a girl who wants to listen”). Song by song, she’s broadening her fan base: Lipa’s self-titled debut album, which was released in June, has been streamed more than 1.4 billion times; now she’s headlining giant music festivals like Glastonbury and opening for Bruno Mars. “It’s so much fun—the adrenaline, the craziness,” she says. “There’s nothing quite like it.”
