Hotter than hell

British-born singer Dua Lipa has seen her global profile rise exponentially over the last 12 months, which have included the release of her eponymous debut album and a performance at the UK’s 140,000-capacity Glastonbury Festival.

Having grown up in London and Albania, the 22-year-old was signed to Warner Music Group in 2015 and soon began producing hit songs such as Be The One, Last Dance and Hotter Than Hell. Lipa achieved her first UK No 1 in June with New Rules, which also charted in the Top 10 in Australia, the US and Canada.

Forthcoming shows include Malaysia’s KL Live (3,000) in Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong’s MacPhearson Stadium (1,850) and Japan’s Zepp Tokyo (2,500), before heading to the US, where a performance at Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival (65,000) is among her shows.

“From the very start Dua has showed a capacity for hard work rarely seen and has built her success on a close relationship with her fans, with playing live at the core of that relationship,” says her international agent David Levy of WME in London.

Lipa’s business affairs are handled by Ben Mawson at Tap Management, also in London.
