Dua Lipa makes Youtube history with billion view breaking record

Congratulations are in order

Dua Lipa has made Youtube history as the youngest female artist to hit one billion views on a music video.

‘New Rules’ has over 1,000,000,000 views at the time of writing and was the sixth single that appeared on Dua Lipa’s self-titled debut album.

Understandably the artist is incredibly pleased and took to Instagram to express her excitement. The ‘IDGAF’ singer posted a photo of herself as a cute baby with the caption: “I picked up the phone and found out I am the youngest female artist to hit 1 BILLION views on a music video”.

In another record breaking bout, Lipa recently made BRIT awards history by scoring the most nominations in a single year for a female solo artist. Her five nods also make her the most nominated act this year.

The ‘New Rules’ singer is nominated for British Solo Female Artist, British Artist Video of the Year, British Breakthrough Act, British Single and Mastercard British Album of the Year. The 38th BRIT Awards will take place at London’s The O2 Arena on February 21.

The OST for the third film in the erotic drama series also features tracks from the likes of Hailee Steinfield, Julia Michaels, Jessie J, and a collaboration between Rita Ora and former One Direction member Liam Payne.
