Dua Lipa’s 8 Most Iconic Music Videos

Become a major popstar after the release of his hit album nostalgia for the future during the pandemic, Dua Lipa has yet to slow down. His music is an irresistible blend of pop, electronic and disco, and his accompanying videos are hypnotic on-screen dance parties. Here’s a list of Lipa’s most iconic music videos, from her powerful feminist anthems to surreal animated remixes.

‘Blow Your Mind (Muah)’

Recorded in 2016 (a year before “New Rules” made her a household name), Lipa’s “Blow Your Mind (Muah)” could be considered the singer’s anthem. Full of pissed off women who seem as apathetic as they are empowered, the video feels a lot like Lipa announcing her arrival into the world.

‘Cold Heart (PNAU Remix)’

Lipa comes alive in this psychedelic remix from Elton John. Released in 2021, “Cold Heart (PNAU Remix)” shot to No. 1 on the UK charts shortly after its debut. It later topped the Billboard charts as well. The video features a collection of disco-clad Claymation dancers dressed as animals, all boogy to remix amidst a universe of flying fish and eyeball flowers. Odd? Yes. Iconic? You bet.

“Fear of being alone”

Lipa’s 2017 collaboration with Martin Garrix is ​​an unusually vulnerable video in the artist’s collection. Filmed in dark, intimate settings with vast, austere landscapes, the video follows an introspective Lipa as she questions the motives of her relationship. Beautifully shot and as thrilling as it is devastating, the video stands out as one of Lipa’s most artistic.

‘Physical’

Hinting at the animation that was to accompany his collaboration with John, 2020’s “Physical” sees Lipa begin to explore other mediums in his videos. The clip is full of Lipa’s favorite elements (lots of dancing and surrealism). And it seems to revolve around the idea that she holds her man’s heart in the palm of her hand.

“Don’t Start Now”

The music video for Lipa’s 2020 hit song, “Don’t Start Now,” begins with her lashing out at what is presumably her ex and dropping him to the ground. From there, the video flashes back five hours ago. It details the night she spends with her girlfriends, dancing (of course) and working to get over said boyfriend.

After a few shots of Lipa staring sadly into the mirror of a dirty bathroom, the viewer gets the idea that Lipa isn’t as over her ex as she wants to believe, a common stage of angst a break.

‘Break My Heart’

Plunging headlong into the surrealism seen so often in Lipa’s most iconic music videos, “Break My Heart” seems to evoke a feeling in the viewer more than tell a cohesive story. Abandoning her normally super-powered state for a more vulnerable one, Lipa tumbles through a plotless yet visually compelling sea of ​​heartache to the upbeat, ever-dance-worthy beat Lipa is so known for.

‘Levitation’

We’ve never had so much fun in an elevator. The video for Lipa’s 2020 hit, “Levitating” featuring DaBaby is a total dance party within the confines of an elevator that appears to double as a rocket. Each floor attracts more revelers, including roller skaters and disco queens. And in the end, Lipa and her entourage party in intergalactic style.

‘New Rules’

With over 2.8 billion views, “New Rules” is by far Lipa’s most iconic music video to date. The video, filmed in 2017, follows Lipa as she relies on her closest and dearest friends to help her make good choices in the face of a bad relationship. In the end, Lipa is now healed from the toxic relationship and helps the other members of her crew through similar issues.

The video touches on many of Lipa’s favorite themes, like strong women and the power of female camaraderie. It also features Lipa’s trademark dance moves in a series of fun pale pastel outfits. It’s not hard to see why the video is the reigning champion of her collection or how the song launched her career into the stratosphere.
