First releasing the anthem that is ‘Don’t Start Now,’ Dua Lipa gave us a sneak peek at what would be a different style and era of music she would display when releasing Future Nostalgia. Featuring elements of dance-pop and nu-disco, Dua Lipa took a leap and proved that the influence of great music from the past can continue and show appreciation in the present.
Continuing that influence and appreciation was followed with the release of her other singles: ‘Physical,’ ‘Break My Heart,’ ‘Hallucinate,’ and ‘Levitating.’ A combination of darkwave, disco-funk, psychedelic, and of course, pop, these genres helped curate not only greats singles but the excitement many fans had and still have for Future Nostalgia.
Now, in 2021, Dua invites us to continue this era with the reissue of Future Nostalgia with Future Nostalgia: The Moonlight Edition. Containing eight additional tracks, Dua Lipa gives us another taste of her love of disco, funk, synth, pop, and more by continuing that storytelling of dancing your broken heart out.
Speaking with Zane Lowe on Apple Music, Dua Lipa explains that ‘We’re Good‘ is all about “having that amicable breakup that I think everybody kind of wants.” But if there are any songs that will have you feeling absolutely groovy, it’s the tracks ‘If It Ain’t Me’ and ‘That Kind Of Woman.’
‘If It Ain’t Me’ will have you connecting the dots that these first few seconds are Daft Punk-esque and that the rest is actually not a “sad disco” but a true track that makes disco proud. And with ‘That Kind Of Woman,’ it provides the explosion we all love with synth-pop – power and energy.
Featuring her collaboration with Miley Cyrus for their single ‘Prisoner‘ and DaBaby for ‘Levitating,’ Dua Lipa brings on more artists to celebrate this era of music with Angèle, JID, J Balvin, Bad Bunny, and Tainy on ‘Fever,’ ‘Not My Problem,’ and ‘Un Día (One Day).’
Future Nostalgia: The Moonlight Edition further continues that escapism we all crave when listening to pop music. Filled with songs that have you remembering the first time you ever heard music icons like Madonna, Daft Punk, Blondie, Prince, and more, this reissue of Dua Lipa’s second studio album proves to be a great continuation.
