Get Ready to Groove: Dua Lipa's Latest Hit 'Houdini' Will Have You Dancing All Night Long

Updated: Apr 17

Dua Lipa is back with a bang! The global superstar has just released her highly-anticipated track, "Houdini," which marks the beginning of a whole new chapter following the massive success of her 2020 hit album, "Future Nostalgia." And, let me tell you, this one is an absolute jam that you can't afford to miss!

The official music video for "Houdini" is out now, and it's everything you could ask for and more. Directed by Manu Cossu with cinematographer André Chemetoff, the video features Dua in a dance hall, practicing her moves post-rehearsal under fluorescent lights. As the energy starts to rise, the mirrors in the room create an optical illusion, making it a visual treat for every music lover out there.

Talking about the track, Dua describes it as embodying "that 4 a.m. feeling when the night is coming to a close and you're a bit sweaty, but you just don't want the party to end." And boy, does it live up to that description! The music is upbeat and fun and will make you want to dance like there's no tomorrow.

But that's not all. Dua also reveals that "Houdini" represents the light and freeing aspects of her singledom. The track explores the idea of whether someone is really worth her while or if she'll ghost them in the end. It's a tongue-in-cheek take on modern-day relationships and the unpredictability of life.

This one's a true masterpiece, and the credit goes to Dua's core collaborators, Caroline Ailin, Danny L. Harle, Tobias Jesso Jr., and Tame Impala's Kevin Parker. They all have contributed to this project, and the results are evident. "Houdini" is produced by Parker and Harle and written by Lipa herself, along with her collaborators.

"Houdini" is one of those tracks that will get you hooked from the very first listen. It's all about the joyous moments of absolute chaos and how one moves through the world with lightness and optimism, whatever the outcome. So, what are you waiting for? Go ahead and give it a listen now!
