Dua Lipa has reached a major milestone today, with “New Rules” reaching #1 on the UK charts. This is the first UK number one single by a female solo artist since Adele’s “Hello” in 2015. In addition, the video for “New Rules” has amassed over 100 million views in just 40 days. The track is currently streaming over 8 million times a day, and is sitting at #6 on the Global Spotify Chart. “New Rules” will impact at U.S. radio on August 22nd.
Dua released the video for “New Rules” earlier this summer with an overwhelming response from fans and the press alike. Buzzfeed declared ““New Rules,” is not only your new summer anthem but also the video is a cinematic masterpiece” and PAPER raved “we’re in love with her self-empowered summer vibes.”
The response from fans inspired Dua to call on them to upload covers and lip syncs of “New Rules” online, tagging #DuasNewRules, resulting in a collaboration video showcasing how the song has connected Dua with her fans.
