Dua Lipa in Singapore: Where she went, who she met and what she sang
We've set our sights on Dua Lipa even before her collaboration with makeup gurus M.A.C. Cosmetics. The English singer of Albanian descent was in town on 8 May for an exclusive showcase — her first in Asia. While she's visited Bali on holiday before, Singapore marks her Asian debut performance as a singer.
Playing at JW Marriott Singapore, her five-track set included early and recent hits such as 'New Love' and 'Lost In Your Light' (a duet with American R&B singer Miguel). Backed by a guitarist, the 21-year-old charmed her fans with an acoustic take on each song. Showing off her vocal chops, Lipa also shared her musical influences — Pink and Nelly Furtado — and story behind her love for singing. The emerging pop starlet will debut her first album on 2 June.
While in town, Lipa went through the typical tourist trail, spending the day at Gardens by the Bay, visiting a Hindu temple, trying out local snacks and ending the night at CÉ LA VI for what's arguably Singapore's best view.
