Dua Lipa Wins At UK Music Video Awards 2020
Dua Lipa took home the Best Pop Video award for a third time with the visual accompaniment to Break My Heart in another successful collaboration with director Henry Scholfield – last year’s winner of the Best Director award.
The song features on her second solo album Future Nostalgia, which was released earlier this year and included the hit singles Don’t Start Now, Hallucinate and Levitating. The UKMVA award joins a rapidly expanding shelf, with Dua Lipa having racked up Brit awards and Grammys since her debut in 2015.
The top honours came at the climax of the annual celebration of creativity and craft in the medium of music videos, presented by broadcaster and DJ Becca Dudley from a London studio – speaking live to the winners via a virtual audience platform which saw 500+ music video professionals joining in the show from their homes or offices around the world.
Other artists recognised at this year’s UKMVAs include Disclosure, IDLES, FKA twigs, JME, Riz Ahmed, Greentea Peng and The Streets, in an event that honoured work in music video across music genres, individual achievement and craft and technical prowess behind the camera.
There were first time wins for JME featuring Merky Ace for Live, directed by Matthew Walker (Best UK Hip Hop/Grime/Rap Video), and IDLES, whose video for War was directed by Will Dohrn (Best UK Rock Video). Joining their ranks also for the first time were directors Camille Summers-Valli for her work on Låpsley’s My Love Was Like the Rain (Best UK Alternative Video) and Brock Neal-Roberts for Berwyn’s Trap Phone (Best UK R&B/Soul Video).
