UPDATE: Dua Lipa’s first official release in the U.S. is here, the bubbly feel-good, carefully crafted for radio song “Blow Your Mind (Mwah).”
The “Mwah” is important. It’s scattered into the song nearly every 20 seconds, so if you love blowing kisses this song is for you. Give it a listen:
EARLIER // AUGUST 24: It appears Dua Lipa caved and changed the cover for her upcoming self-titled debut album after scrutiny from the Internet lambasted the original.
Above the is the second version, and it’s a million times better. Unless you’re a fan of photos where people look like they’re a second away from sneezing.
“I’m so excited to share my album artwork with you and thank you guys for being so patient and supportive,” she wrote in a post on Facebook. “The reason it is self-titled is because this album is me. It’s a representation of who I am as a person and as an artist.”
Fans who pre-order the deluxe album on Friday get her new single “Blow Your Mind” instantly.
EARLIER // JULY 6:
Dua Lipa’s first-ever studio album will debut on September 30.
Amazon confirms the release date, as well as the album cover art (above), but as the Internet typically does, it found a problem with the cover – a lot of her fans decided they didn’t like it and made their own versions instead and Tweeted them to the 20-year-old.

A radio station even called it trash, which prompted a snarky response from Lipa. Both Tweets are deleted now, but the Internet is forever.
The standard will include 12 tracks, while the deluxe will feature 17.
Since last August, the English singer-songwriter has released “New Love,” “Be The One,” “Last Dance” and most recently, “Hotter Than Hell.”
