It seems the 70s and 80s pop sensations, tunes, visual effects, and fashion are all the rage recently. Dua Lipa, the pop scene's sweetheart, is effortlessly giving us this oldies feel with her new Levitating music video, featuring rapper DaBaby.
Just like her latest album's accurate title Future Nostalgia describes our newfound obsession with glitter and disco-everything, the single Levitating simply puts it all in action in its Warren Fu-directed video.
The beauty of this track is that it already has two official remixes, one with non-other than rap queen Missy Elliot and the queen of pop Madonna with the second being the most recent one with rapper DaBaby.
Since we're here talking about rap legends and whatnot, Dua Lipa amused her fans by having a go at rapping towards the end of the song, which many praised in the comments section on YouTube.
"My love is like a rocket, watch it blast-off.. And I'm feeling so electric, dance my ass off.. And even if I wanted to, I can't stop," she raps with a light British accent, followed by a series of crescendo, upbeat-y "yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah."
What's noteworthy about this video is the singularity of its direction, which came from a partnership between Dua Lipa and the famous, entertaining app TikTok.
This collaboration saw 150,000 videos created on TikTok by avid users who were given the chance to participate, in one way or another, in the creation of Levitating's music video. The end result sees crowdsourced ideas such as makeup looks, original dance moves, and even TikTok-ers themselves dancing in the video.
If this isn't a cool way to bring everyone together, artists and fans, then we don't know what is.
But, actually, we do know another way that's even better... and that's an entire night of music, mayhem, performance, theatre, and dance, crowned with the wedding of reality and fantasy.
Studio 2054 is Dua Lipa's way of bringing an intergalactic experience to viewers. With guest stars, performers, acrobats, and her top hit songs, the artist is sure to leave you baffled.
