The British-Albanian star released ‘Don’t Start Now’ and its music video just last week. It’s the first single from her highly anticipated sophomore album. She released her debut self-titled album in 2017.
For the MTV EMAs performance in Seville, Spain, Lipa sang ‘Don’t Start Now’ surrounded by scores of dancers clad in yellow bodysuits. Watch the high-energy performance here:
Lipa explained that she chose to release ‘Don’t Start Now’ as the first single “so I could close one chapter of my life and start another”.
“Into a new era with a new sound!” she added. “It’s about moving on and not allowing anyone to get in the way of that. It also felt like a natural first song choice as I made it with the brilliant same crew I made ‘New Rules’ with.”
‘Don’t Start Now’ previews Lipa’s as-yet-untitled new album, which she says bears a “disco influence”. She also revealed earlier this year that she had logged studio time with disco icon Nile Rodgers.
