For Patrizia Pepe.

Dua Lipa recorded a cover of “Bang Bang” for Patrizia Pepe, and it’s an anthem.

The original is iconic, and it’s almost a right of passage for an up-and-coming pop star to attempt to tame it. Most fail, but I’d say Dua’s version, which is featured in a new advertisement for Patrizia Pepe, is a particularly great take.

Electro-tinged production dances around a thumping beat and engulfs the “New Rules” singer’s sultry tone. Hopefully we get a full version soon.
