English-Albanian singer, songwriter and model Dua Lipa (22) born in London, recently released one of her biggest hit songs “New Rules”, when her album Dua Lipa dropped in June of 2017 by Warner Bros Records. Using heartbreak as her inspiration, “New Rules” is about keeping distance and moving on from an ex-boyfriend. Lipa bares her soul to teach her fans and audience how to deal with a heartbreak, but also to uplift each other with the self-care they need.

“They’re not necessarily rules I’ve been able to stick by,” Lipa admits, “but they’re rules that I feel like it’s important to be able to tell yourself, to tell your friends… There’s a reason people break up, and it’s probably the same reason why you shouldn’t get back together.”

Fans of Lipa consider “New Rules” an infectious summer pop song that is perfect to vibe to. The song gained a 40% popularity increase in August and had more than 130 million views on YouTube. Fans love the song because of its powerful message, because they feel as if they are “getting to know more about her”, meaning they are learning her morals and what she does during a heartbreak, almost like she is talking to a friend.

“The lyrics mean a lot because I dealt with a heartbreak and it showed me that with strength and the correct guidance, you can get over the pain, even if it’s hard”, said junior Rachel Mateuszczyk.

“New Rules” has helped Lipa gain popularity and grab people’s attention. The music video shows Lipa and her friends having a sleepover and doing casual girl activities. For example, doing each other’s hair and applying lipstick. More importantly, the music video shows the girls intervening when one of the girls consider reuniting with an ex. New Zealand singer-songwriter, Lorde, stated that is was the “dopest video she’d seen in ages.” The message Lipa is trying to get across, it is to simply “be yourself” and “love yourself”.

Dua Lipa’s “Rules” lyrics:                                                       

One, don’t pick up the phone

You know he’s only calling ’cause he’s dr*** and alone

Two, don’t let him in

You have to kick him out again

Three, don’t be his friend

….

You ain’t getting over him

Christmas “Rules” Dua Lipa Tweeted:

  1. Throw away your calendar
  2. Break up with him so it’s one less gift
  3. Marry the grinch
