Pop sensation Dua Lipa did her part to help relieve the monotony of self-isolation this week by releasing a new video for her latest single, the day before making an early drop of her highly anticipated new album, “Future Nostalgia.”

The singer, who exploded onto the music scene in 2015 with a self-titled, chart topping debut album which eclipsed 4 million sales worldwide, on Thursday revealed the pop art video for “Break My Heart.” Taking viewers on a rollercoaster of a journey through the trials and tribulations of relationships, the track is the third single from “Future Nostalgia,” following the the number one global hit single “Don’t Start Now,” and her current UK smash single “Physical.”

On Friday, Dua released the entire album, which is now available for download on all digital platforms, as well as in physical formats which include pink neon vinyl, CD, picture disc, gold cassette and a deluxe box set.

In addition, she released an announcement of rescheduled dates for her upcoming “Future Nostalgia” UK and European Tour, which was originally set for this year but has now been pushed back to early 2021.

Dua Lipa made history with her debut album, which became the most streamed album by a female artist in Spotify history. The video for her breakout global #1 hit “New Rules” made her the youngest female solo artist to reach one billion views on YouTube, and the track was the first to spend a record 45 weeks on the Billboard Pop Songs Chart. She set another milestone in 2018 by becoming the first female artist to pick up five BRIT Award nominations, with two wins for British Breakthrough Act and British Female Solo Artist, and in 2019, she received two Grammy awards for Best New Artist and Best Dance Recording.

The adrenaline-fueled lead single from “Future Nostalgia,” “Don’t Start Now,” has over 600 million streams and hit #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 – Dua Lipa’s highest position on that chart to date. Her newest UK smash single “Physical” was released with an accompanying super-charged rainbow-colored video and immediately hit the Billboard Hot 100.
