Dua Lipa was supposed to perform on Saturday Night Live this coming weekend — that isn’t happening. Her new album, Future Nostalgia, was supposed to come out next week, but that’s not happening either. Instead, it’ll be out this Friday, a week before planned, partly because of coronavirus concerns but mostly because the whole thing leaked online a few days ago.
While we’ve still got a couple days to wait for the whole thing to become legitimately available, tonight Dua Lipa is sharing a new single from it, “Break My Heart,” the fourth song she’s shared following “Don’t Start Now,” “Physical,” and the title track.
“Break My Heart” interpolates INXS’ “Need You Tonight.” It was co-produced by the Monsters & Strangerz and frequent Post Malone collaborator watt, who was recently diagnosed with coronavirus. It features the hook: “I would’ve stayed at home/ ‘Cus I was doing better alone,” which probably would’ve hit different if any of us could actually leave our homes.
UPDATE: “Break My Heart” now has a video. Watch below.
