Dua Lipa Talks 'Experimental' New Music, Grammy Buzz & Steamy 'Electricity' Video

Long before she released her self-titled debut album, Dua Lipa began touring back in January 2016. Fast-forward nearly three years, and, by her math, the pop star has played 245 concerts and festival sets since then, with only one date remaining on her 2018 schedule. But she's definitely not complaining. The success of her album -- and especially its record-breaking single "New Rules," which has the longest run ever on Billboard's Pop Songs radio airplay chart, thanks to its 45 weeks on the tally -- has allowed her to "go around the world at least three times, doing what I love and performing," she tells Billboard's Pop Shop Podcast.
