Dua Lipa And Jack Harlow Battling The Beatles For No 1 Spot
The Beatles remain at No 1 at the midweek mark with their record breaking Now And Then, but they see stiff competition from US rapper Jack Harlow’s Lovin’ On Me (2) and Dua Lipa’s Houdini (3), with little over 2,000 chart units separating all three tracks, according to the Official Charts Company.
In a statement, Dua Lipa said “Houdini embodies that 4 a.m. feeling when the night is coming to a close and you’re a bit sweaty, but you just don’t want the party to end.”
“This track represents the most light and freeing parts of my singledom,” she added. “Houdini is very tongue in cheek, exploring the idea of whether someone is really worth my while or if I’ll ghost them in the end. You never know where something may take you, that’s the beauty of being open to whatever life throws your way. Im looking forward to sharing that feeling of defiant bliss with my fans.”
And in a new interview with Australian radio station Triple J, Lipa has opened up about working with Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker, who co-wrote and co=produced Houdini, “In terms of things that I’m obsessed with, [Tame Impala’s 2015 third album] Currents has been the soundtrack to my life. It’s one of my favourite albums ever ever ever. [It] was kind of like the gateway drug for me into Tame Impala. It completely changed my life and so it was very, very cool to be able to collaborate with him this way.
“I’ve always looked up to [him] as someone that I’m really inspired by and [he] has always been on my dream board of people to work with.”
